The Challenges of Being Catholic with Celiac Disease

Final thoughts

Celiac disease means altering many aspects of life - particularly diet.  For many people, it can mean making huge sacrifices by sometimes having to give up favorite foods, activities, and products.  Thankfully, though, as celiac disease and living the gluten-free lifestyle is becoming more widely understood and accepted there are more and more options available. 

For Catholic celiac patients, being able to fully participate in their weekly mass by having access to low-gluten communion hosts is a prime example of how to maintain some normal parts of life while living with the disorder.
