What to Do With Non-Consumed Hosts

Full Question

After taking the Eucharist to a senior center or hospital, should non-consumed consecrated hosts be taken back to the church’s tabernacle?


If possible or practical, yes, the best thing is to simply return the non-consumed hosts to the parish. If that is not possible or practical, the extraordinary minister may consume them privately and piously.
