Dear Diocesan Communications Directors:


Please see the statement from Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on the document on the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. (English | Spanish)


Also, a Q&A document has been prepared and shared with the bishops. In consultation with your respective bishop, please feel free to utilize the document if you determine that it will be helpful in your diocese. (English | Spanish)


Finally, here’s a story in Catholic News Service which you are welcome to share however you find appropriate, again, if in consultation with your bishop, you find it to be useful.
