Celebrant

 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.    1 John 1:8,9

 

Celebrant

 

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

 

Silence may be kept

 

Celebrant and People

 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

 

Celebrant

 

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.

 

All sing

 

 

Celebrant

 

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

 

Let us pray.

 

Celebrant

 

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Please be seated

 

A Reading from Isaiah 43:16-21

 

Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters, who brings out chariot and horse, army and warrior; they lie down, they

cannot rise, they are extinguished, quenched like a wick: Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing;

now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the

wilderness and rivers in the desert. The wild animals will honor me, the

jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert,

to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise. the land of Canaan that year.

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All say

 

Psalm 126

 

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
then were we like those who dream.

Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy.

Then they said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”

The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are glad indeed.

Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
like the watercourses of the Negev.

Those who sowed with tears
will reap with songs of joy.

Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed,
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.

 

A Reading from Philippians 3:4b-14

 

 

If anyone else has reason to be confident in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, a member of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.

 

Yet whatever gains I had, these I have come to regard as loss because of Christ. More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God based on faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

 

Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.

Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Please stand and sing

 

Hymn 474                                          “When I survey the wondrous cross”

 

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to

John 12:1-8

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him. Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (the one who was about to betray him), said, “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and the money given to the poor?” (He said this not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it.) Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She bought it so that she might keep it for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.


Please be seated

 

Sermon                                                                   The Rev. Canon Catherine Cox

 

Please stand

Celebrant and People

 

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit

he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son, he is worshiped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Please remain standing

 

 

 

 

Leader

 

As we press on toward the goal, let us earnestly offer prayers to God through Jesus

Christ saying, Lord, have mercy.

 

For the holy catholic church throughout the world, sharing the death and resurrection of Christ.

Lord, have mercy.

For Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury; Michael our Presiding Bishop; Mark and Michael our Bishops; for Bobby our Provost; Catherine our Curate; Andy and Basil our Assisting Priests; in our Anglican cycle of prayer, we pray for The Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion); in our Diocesan cycle of prayer, we pray for the ministry of food banks and meal programs throughout the diocese; for Zora Carver, Lindsay Favre, Kisynn Cunningham, Angel Malcuit, Kathleen Crouch and all who are celebrating birthdays this week; for Mike and Mary Nell Beatty and all who are celebrating anniversaries this week.

Lord, have mercy.

For all nations and their leaders; for Joe our President, Laura our Governor; Trent our Mayor, and for justice, mercy, and peace.

Lord, have mercy.

For this city of Salina, and those who live in it; and for ourselves, our families, companions, and all those we love.

Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and the suffering, and for all who are in danger or need.

Lord, have mercy.

For the dying and the dead.

Lord, have mercy.

Remembering the ever Blessed Virgin Mary, and all the saints, let us offer ourselves and one another to the living God through Christ.

To you, O Lord.

 

Celebrant

 

Blessed are you, God of eternal life, who made a way for us in the wilderness.

Receive the prayers we offer this day and invite your people to the paschal feast; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Celebrant

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

          And also with you.

 

Offertory Anthem                                My Jesus, I love thee              Mark Sedio

 

My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine:

For thee all the follies of sin I resign;

My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou;

If ever I loved thee, Lord Jesus, ‘tis now;

 

I love thee because thou hast first loved me,

And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;

I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy bow;

If ever I loved thee, Lord Jesus, ‘tis now;

 

In mansions of glory and endless delight,

I’ll ever adore thee in heaven so bright;

I’ll sing with a glittering crown on my brow;

If ever I loved thee, Lord Jesus, ‘tis now.

-William R. Featherstone

 

Following the Offertory Anthem, all stand and sing the Doxology 

 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Praise him all creatures here below.

Praise him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

 

The Holy Communion

 

Please stand

 

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give him thanks and praise.

 

Then, facing the Holy Table, the Celebrant proceeds

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord; who was tempted in every way as we are, yet did not sin. By his grace we are able to triumph over every evil, and to live no longer for ourselves alone, but for him who died for us and rose again.

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

 

All sing

 

 

Please continue standing or kneel as the Celebrant continues

 

Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.

 

He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.

 

At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it or lay a hand upon it; and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand upon the cup and any other
vessel containing wine to be consecrated.

 

On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

 

After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.

 

Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:

 

Celebrant and People

 

Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.

 

The Celebrant continues

 

We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.

 

Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.

 

All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.

 

The Celebrant continues

 

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Celebrant breaks the consecrated bread and a moment of silence is observed

 

 

 

 

 

All sing

 

 

 

 

The Celebrant offers the consecrated bread and wine to the people saying

 

The Gifts of God for the People of God.

 

All baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Communion. If you have not been baptized and would like to receive a blessing, please come forward and cross your arms across your chest.

 

All sing

 

Hymn 313                                                         “Let thy blood in mercy poured”

                                                                                 

Celebrant

 

Let us pray.

 

Please stand or kneel

 

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

 

In Lent the Celebrant prays a solemn Prayer over the People

 

Keep this your family, Lord, with your never-failing mercy, that relying solely on the help of your heavenly grace, they may be upheld by your divine protection; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

All stand and sing

 

Hymn 473                                                                                 “Lift high the cross”

Thanks be to God.
