Upon the Sundays and other Holy-days (if there be no Communion) shall be said all that is
appointed at the Communion, until the end of the general Prayer (For the whole state of * Christ's Church militant here in earth] together with one or more of these Collects last bei fore rehearsed, concluding with the Blessing.
And there shall be no celebration of the Lord's Supper, except there be a convenient number to communicate with the Priest, according to his discretion. .
And if there be not above twenty persons in the parish of discretion to receive the Commu. nion; yet there shall be no Communion, except four (or three at the least) communicate with the Priest.
And in Cathedral and Collegiate Churches, and Colleges, where there are many Priests and Deacons, they shall all receive the Communion with the Priest every Sunday at the least, except they have a reasonable cause to the contrary.
And to take away all occasion of dissention, and superstition, which any person hath or might have concerning the Bread and Wine, it shall suffice that the Bread be such as is usual to be eaten; but the best and purest Wheat Bread that conveniently may be gotten.
And if any of the Bread and Wine remain unconsecrated, the Curate shall have it to his own use : but if any remain of that which was consecrated, it shall not be carried out of the Church, but the Priest and such other of the Communicants as he shall then call unto him, shall, immediately after the Blessing, reverently eat and drink the same.
The Bread and Wine for the Communion shall be provided by the Curate and the Churchwardens at the charges of the Parish.
And note, that every Parishioner shall communicate at the least three times in the year, of which Easter to be one. And yearly at Easter every Parishioner shall reckon with the Parson, Vicar, or Curate, or his or their Deputy or Deputies; and pay to them or him all Ecclesiastical Duties, accustomably due, then and at that time to be paid.
After the Divine Service ended, the money given at the Offertory shall be disposed of to such pious and charitable uses, as the Minister and Church-wardens shall think fit. Wherein if they disagree, it shall be disposed of as the Ordinary shall appoint,
