Intinction is the practice during communion of partially dipping the bread into the wine, so that both can be administered at the same time. It is an approved method of the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some Anglican churches. In this practice, the priest dips the bread into the wine and then places it on the tongue of the communicant.

In some Protestant denominations, intinction is practiced where the communicant himself dips the bread in the wine and then receives it.
