This week’s question: If you go to communion in the morning, can you receive communion at night also? … This is such a common question that the church has spoken formally about it in Canon Law. Canon 917 reads, “A person who has already received the Most Holy Eucharist can receive it a second time on the same day only within the eucharistic celebration in which the person participates, without prejudice to the prescript of can. 921, §2.” Canon 921.2 simply encourages a person in danger of death to receive Holy Communion even if they have already received Communion that same day. This question often arises when a person is at a wedding or a funeral and then attends the Saturday Mass of anticipation on the same day.
