I have a couple questions regarding what’s allowed and not.
My church is starting adoration, still in the formative stages. I have “heard” that it is OK for a Eucharistic Minister to expose and repose the Eucharist (with some sort of rite). Does anyone know if this is true and where I can find it in official Church documents? I’ve actually heard both it is and it isn’t OK, so I’ll have to produce documentation.
As part of the early process, we are having a Holy Hour on Thursdays, as suggested by the PJP2EA.org website. Our parish has only a deacon irregularly available for this service. When he is available, he does exposition, Benediction and reposition. When he is not, a member of the laity leads a prayer service in front of the tabernacle. It was asked if on the days we pray in front of the tabernacle, would it be OK to have the tabernacle open, again by a Eucharistic Minister. Please again provide Church docs.
