As I am now the young men's second counselor, this will become more important to me as time goes on. We only had 2 deacons, 2 teachers, and 2 priests at church today, so we tend to have a combined class, even if the deacons and priests are at very different maturity levels.

We went over the sacrament passing routes today. Any other ward have the super-gluten and egg free wafer? That is on top of all of the sacrament bread actually being gluten free? as 3 families in the ward have (claim) such strong gluten and egg allergies, that their wafers cannot come close to gluten containing bread. Very horrible tasting bread. But, I just imagine it is a bread 1/2 way to Passover type bread, with the bitter herbs included in it.

Jason,

We have a small amount of Gluten free brought in for one member.

I wonder, have do they go about breaking the bread and not cross-contaminating it. Since breaking and blessing is part of the administration of the sacrament the non-standard bread also needs to be broken. But it would have to be done by someone prior to their handling the gluten bread, if their sensitivity is so great.
Don't ask me, I only live here.

Not so.

Here are the Church guidelines on these things:

Quote
During the sacrament, the priesthood holders break the regular bread but do not open the bags or touch the allergen-free bread substitute. The prayer to bless the bread is offered in the normal way.

Our ward has a separate clear round, plastic, screw-top container with Cheerios on the trays for those in the ward (including my wife) who have gluten allergies/intolerences.

Corn Chex actually tend to work (and keep) better, tho.

It's on the altar with what is broken. The symbolism is ultimately present, and the understanding is accepted.

Just as in the Temple, there are some actions that are impossible for some participants to fulfill, and yet their presence and desire are what is accepted.

Also, while the guidelines on the site are presented as general awareness and a starting point, the wards are given the leeway to best handle the situation as meets the local members:

Quote
Depending on the number of individuals involved or specific circumstances, the bishopric may modify the procedure.

The several families have gluten and egg free wafers. Our ward's method of avoiding cross contamination is by having everyone else still partake of gluten free bread.

Our ward has the members that need it bring it in their own baggies, which are given to the Aaronic PH and put on the trays with the regular bread.
