Statement on the 'bleeding host' at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church

Friday, Nov. 27, 2015

Recently, reports of a bleeding host at St. Francis Xavier Church in Kearns have been circulating within the diocese. Monsignor Colin F. Bircumshaw, Diocesan Administrator, has appointed an ad hoc committee of individuals with various backgrounds to investigate the matter. The work of the committee is now underway. The results will be made public.

The host is now in the custody of the Diocesan Administrator. Contrary to rumor, there are NO current plans for public exposition or adoration.

Whatever the outcome of the investigation, we can use this time to renew our faith and devotion in the greatest miracle - the Real Presence of Jesus Christ that takes place at every Mass.

Msgr. M. Francis Mannion
Committee Chair
