I thought most Protestant churches don't do communion at all.

I don't know of any denominations that don't. Beliefs about what communion represents are a huge difference between Catholics and Protestants in general, per my understanding, I wonder if this is what you're thinking of.

SaLL's comments are accurate, which is why I don't think any Protestants would agree with hulc, but many Catholics would - as in "that's not what communion is, what you do isn't communion".

You're mistaken. I'm not aware of any that don't. Most (all?) protestants reject a lot of the Catholic sacraments, but they all, to my knowledge, keep baptism and communion as being core to Christian practice. Some protestants call them sacraments, some call them ordinances or something else. But they all have them.

It's also true that most denominations (that I know of) don't tend to offer communion as a part of every service. In my experience it ranges from once a month to once a quarter.

That's good news, as long as they did not run out of test kits or just hoarding them for stricter controls.

None of the Protestant churches I went to growing up had communion. It was only in college that I encountered one that had it.

They brought me into the back room where it was being prepared, and I was amused to see them opening a jar of Welch's grape juice to pour into the little vials. I thought it would have been more "holified", like juiced from grapes grown on church grounds.
