3. Holy Bread (Antidoron): After Communion, those who have received the Body & Blood of Christ
should consume a piece of bread to cleanse the mouth of the holy gifts. As the
Bread is blessed, it should be handled with great care and not be broken or passed around by,
Or among the laity. Everyone is welcome to come forward at the end of Liturgy to reverence the Cross,
and receive a piece of the holy bread. Most importantly, NO part of the bread, or crumbs, should fall on the ground.
