How often may I receive Holy Communion?

I had been told that to receive Holy Communion twice in one day the second time must be at a.Mass.
However on Good Friday afternoon, there was Distribution of Holy Communion after the Celebration of Our Lord’s Passion, then in the evening after Stations of the Cross Holy Communion was distributed again.
Please would you clarify the Church’s teaching on the reception of Holy Communion as far as number of times per day ?
Thank you
