With the new limits of "social distancing," churches around the diocese and around the world are turning to the world of livestream using streaming technologies. Dozens of churches in our diocese livestream Eucharist and prayer services every day. See the Diocese of NJ Web page for a full list.
The Right Reverend Willliam H. Stokes and the 12th Bishop of New Jersey, tells us that Spiritual Eucharist can be received from online worship. The Bishop sites the Book of Common Prayer (page 457) "If a person desires to receive the Sacrament, but, by reason of extreme sickness or physical disability, is unable to eat and drink the Bread and Wine, the Celebrant is to assure that person that all the benefits of Communion are received, even though the Sacrament is not received with the mouth."
The National Cathedral Streams Eucharist on Sundays at 11:15 a.m. Bishop Stokes will preach a Livestream Eucharist at Trinity Cathedral Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
If you don't have the Book of Common Prayer at home, here is a link that allows you to read or download the entire Book of Common Prayer.
