Mass wine and swine flu

 |  NCR Today

A curious reader sent the following question: What have you heard about retracting the Eucharistic wine because of swine flu? As of October, the Raleigh Diocese of North Carolina is heading in that direction.

Let's try some citizen journalism here.

If any of you see official notices -- not rumors or hearsay -- from parishes or diocese that are stopping distribution of Communion wine as a precaution against the H1N1 flu, add your info in a comment box on this page.
