How often can you receive Communion at Mass on the same day?

Question:

How often can you receive Communion at Mass on the same day?<br />

Answer:

The Code of Canon Law allows you to receive Communion up to two times in one day (CIC 917). The first time you receive Communion may be at a Mass at which one is assisting (worshiping) or it may be at a Mass where you happen to be in the church at Communion time or it may be outside of a Mass (e.g., at a Communion service). However, the second time you receive Communion it must be at a Mass at which you are assisting (worshiping).
