I have somewhat of a problem. My wife and I have been married for 25 years and will be attending a special celebration by our local Catholic church for those couples who are celebrating 25- and 50-year anniversaries. My wife is Catholic and we attend church every week. Since I have never become a Catholic, I sit alone while my wife goes up to receive Communion. Here is my problem.
I’m fairly certain that most of the other couples at the upcoming celebration are all Catholics and will go up as a couple to receive Communion. For this special occasion, I don’t want to sit alone, while my wife has to go up by herself to receive Communion. My wife has never placed pressure on me to become a Catholic (she’s just happy that I attend). Is there any way that I can recieve Communion for this occasion?
