Title: Host dispenser

Abstract: The disclosed invention provides a Host dispenser, which substantially eliminates the possibility of spreading unwanted germs amongst the members of a church congregation. The disclosed apparatus allows a single Host to be dispensed to a person. The Host dispenser includes a Host magazine in which a plurality of individual Hosts are stored. The Host magazine is configured to register or index the plurality of Hosts, one at a time to an ejection position, where a manually operated ejection ram ejects one Host at a time out of a dispensing opening or port included in the Host dispenser. The Host dispenser further includes a sacramental wine reservoir and dispensing valve for selectively dispensing a small amount of sacramental wine onto a Host as it is dispensed from the Host dispenser.
