France: Drive-in-worship and flash your hazard lights to receive the Eucharist
While many in Malta eagerly await the reopening of Churches, a congregation in France has found a way of attending mass and receiving the Eucharist while respecting Covid-19 measures.
Yesterday, 500 worshipers attended a mass celebrated by the Bishop of Châlons-en-Champagne, and they listened to mass from their cars.
The altar was placed on a trailer, and attendees followed the mass by turning on the radio on the station that was airing the live broadcast at the time.
Those who wanted to receive communion were asked to flash their ‘hazard lights’, and to disinfect their hands before receiving the Eucharist from the priest, who also disinfected his hands before.
