” title=”Confused” /> If a person goes to mass twice in a 24hr period can they receive communion at both services? Years ago I was told one can goto all the masses they want in one day, but are to receive communion only once,is that correct?
You can receive communion during mass twice in a day. You must participate in each mass; you cannot participate in one mass and then just show up for communion in the second (not that I suspect you would).
This is actually a matter of Canon Law.
A person who has already received the Most Holy Eucharist can receive it a second time on the same day only within the eucharistic celebration in which the person participates, without prejudice to the prescript of can. 921, ¬ß2.[/quote:15ejgx16]
You can receive communion three times in one day only if you go to two masses and receive viaticum during the Anointing of the Sick.

Even if they have received Communion in the same day, those who are in danger of death are strongly urged to receive again.[/quote:15ejgx16]
