    Is this causing someone to sin.. ?

    frequency of Communion

    :wave:I remember there was a thread on this long ago, but I've been wondering about it... in my family's ROCOR church, it's a custom to go to Confession before Communion. But I know in some other Orthodox churches, a person can go to Confession once a month, but receive Communion more often. I...
