Hello,

I have not been on the message board lately, and was so glad to see posts about St. Louis restaurants. There are two other restaurant chains that have a gluten-free menus. The first is Carrabba's Italian Grill in O'Fallon and Creve Coeur and the other is Mimi's Cafe in Chestefield. I have not have any problems eating at these places.

In Topic: Celiac Was On The News This Morning!

28 March 2005 - 09:57 AM

I am a life-long, active Catholic. I was dx with celiac 5 months ago. I completely understand the frustration concerning the seeming inflexibility of the Catholic Church regarding wheat-only communion wafers. I would like to share with you my personal experience with this issue.

When I met with my parish priests about receiving communion, they were very compassionate and helpful, even consulting with several religious convents that make low gluten wafers. However, since I attend daily Mass, I did not want to ingest even a small portion of a gluten-free wafer. So I decided to receive only the wine, which according to Church teaching is called transubstantiation and which I believe, is also changed into the Body and Blood of Christ. The substance of both the bread and wine are changed into the real Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ.

In addition to the support of the priests, one of the deacons of my parish researched celiac disease and wrote an essay that was inserted in our weekly bulletin explaining the disease and why I would no longer be receiving communion under both species. This essay not only helped with my initial discomfort of other parisioners asking why I was not receiving the host, but also helped to educate our parish community about celiac disease. Recently, at a fund-raising bake sale, one of the ladies of our parish baked gluten-free chocolate chip cookies!

As you can see, I have been blessed with a loving and supportive Catholic community. I hope and pray that all celiacs who are struggling with this sensitive communion issue will be able to find a respectful resolution as I have.
