Cloth Holders:

  • Assist the priest and deacon by holding the cloth during Holy Communion at each Divine Liturgy

  • Approach the chalice when the priest exclaims, “In the fear of God, and with faith, draw near!”

  • Remove the cloth from the chalice and hold it under the chin of each person receiving the Eucharist to ensure no particle falls to the ground

  • Receives the Eucharist, fold the cloth, and hand it back to the clergy after everyone else has received Holy Communion
