receive the Communion, yet there shall be no Communion, except four

(or three at the least) communicate with the Priest. And in Cathedral and Collegiate Churches and Colleges, where there

are many Priests and Deacons, they Mall all receive the crime munion with the Priest every Sunday at the least, except they have

a reasonable cause to the contrary. And to take away all occasion of dissention and superftition, which

any Person haih or might have concerning the Bread and line, it Jhall fufice that the Bread be Yuch as is usual to be eaton, but the best and purest Wheat Bread that conveniently my be guiten. and if any of the Bread and Wine remain unconfecrated, the Curate Thall have it to his own use ; but if any remain of ihat which was 'confecrated, it shall not be carried out of the Church, but the Priest, and such other of the Communicants as he jhall then call unto him, Mall, immediately after the Bleijing, reverently eat and drink the fame. The Bread and Wine for the Communion shall be provided by the

Curate and the Churchwardens, at the charges of the Parish. And note, that every Parishioner shall communicate at the least three times in the year, of which Eater to be one. And yearly ai Eajter every Parishioner shall reckon with the Parfon, Vicur, or Curate, or his or their deputy or deputies; and pay to them or him all Ecclefiaftical Duiies accustomably due, then and at that time 10

THE Prople are to be admonished, that it is molt convenient that

Baptifm should not be administered but upon Sundays, and other Holy-Days, when the most number of people come together; as well for that the Congregation there present may testify the receiving of them that be newly baptized into the number of Christ's Church; as also becaufi, in the Baptism of Infants, every main prefint may be put in remembrance of his own profesion made in God in his Baptism. For which cause also it is expedient that Baptism be ministered in the vulgar tongue. Nevertheless, (if necellity so

require) Children may be baptized upon any other Day. And noie, That there shall be for every Male Child to be baptized,

two Godfathers and one Godmother; and for every Female, one

Godfather and two Godmothers. When there are Children to be baptized, the Parents shall give

knowledge thereof over night, or in the morning before the begin. ning of Morning Prayer, to the Curate. Ana then the Godfather's and Godmothers, and the People with the Children, must be ready at the Fort, either immediately after the last Lejon at Morning Prayer, or else immediately after the luft Leilon at Evening Prayer, as the Curate by his discretion shall appoint.
