My husband and I are recently separated. I was wondering if I can still receive Communion?


Separated, even divorced Catholics, may receive communion if they are in the state of sanctifying grace. Only those who attempt marriage without an annulment of a prior marriage are barred from communion.

You and your husband will be in my thoughts and prayers.
