the action of dipping the bread in the wine at a Eucharist so that a communicant receives both together.
mid 16th century: from late Latin intinctio(n- ), from Latin intingere, from in- ‘into’ + tingere ‘dip’. The word originally denoted the general action of dipping, especially into something coloured; compare with tinge. The current sense dates from the late 19th century.
We request that people not use the practice of "Intinction" at Communion (the practice of dipping the consecrated bread into the consecrated wine) as it increases the possibility of transmitting infection. If you are concerned about the use of the common cup, it is acceptable for you to receive Communion in one kind only. (ie the bread only).
