Jesus first initiated Communion with his disciples over a Passover meal shortly before his death. His instruction to his followers was to do this act in remembrance of him.
Communion can be celebrated anywhere and as often as we want. Where and when you participate in Communion isn’t what’s most important… it’s why we do it.
