I have a nurse friend from work who will soon be confirmed in the Episcopal church. It’ll be a big event at the cathedral in Spokane, several hours drive from here. She’s really benefited from her involvement in this church, and I’m happy she’s grown spiritually. I was thinking of going to this event, making it an overnight trip. I would attend a Vigil Catholic Mass the evening before.
Can I ask my priest for permission to have communion for this one time event? I know people get their feelings hurt when you won’t have communion in their church, but for this special event it would be nice to share in my friend’s joy as a fellow Christian. I was wondering if he has the authority to suspend the rule about this for a special event.
