Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic East/West celebrate the Eucharist daily. This may be true in some Protestant groups as well. Calvin and Luther commented on the frequency of communion. Catholics worship in the Eucharist daily although not all attend daily.
“Most assuredly, the custom which prescribes communion once a year is an invention of the devil, by what instrumentality soever it may have been introduced. … Each week, at least, the table of the Lord ought to have been spread for the company of Christians, and the promises declared on which we might then spiritually feed.”
John Calvin, The Institutes of the Christian Religion, bk IV, ch 17.
“[N]ow that we have the right interpretation and doctrine of the sacrament, there is great need also of an admonition and entreaty that so great a treasure, which is daily administered and distributed among Christians, may not be heedlessly passed by. What I mean is that those who claim to be Christians should prepare themselves to receive this blessed sacrament frequently. … Let it be understood that people who abstain and absent themselves from the sacrament over a long period of time are not to be considered Christians.”
This author states that Communion should be offered whenever the church assembles to worship.
I will argue that this rule – that as often as the church assembles together for worship, so the Lord’s Supper should be celebrated – is suggested in the Scriptures. Furthermore, that the very earliest Christian churches followed this practice is suggested by early Christian writings describing the typical worship service of the early Church.
