Hymn “I come with joy to meet my Lord”

I come with joy to meet my Lord,
forgiven, loved, and free,
in awe and wonder to recall
his life laid down for me.

I come with Christians far and near
to find, as all are fed,
the new community of love
in Christ’s communion bread.

As Christ breaks bread and bids us share,
each proud division ends.
That love that made us makes us one,
and strangers now are friends.

And thus with joy we meet our Lord.
His presence, always near,
is in such friendship better known:
we see, and praise him here.

Together met, together bound,
we’ll go our different ways,
and as his people in the world,
we’ll live and speak his praise.

Bishop: Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
People: And blessed be his kingdom, now and for ever. Amen.
Bishop: Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord.
People: Amen.
The Bishop and people sit
The Presentation
The presenters, standing before the Bishop, present the ordinand, saying
Mark, Bishop in the Church of God, on behalf of the clergy and people of the Diocese of Oregon, we present to you Catherine Rodman Reid Cox to be ordained a priest in Christ’s holy catholic Church.
Bishop: Has she been selected in accordance with the canons of this Church? And do you believe her manner of life to be suitable to the exercise of this ministry?
Presenters: We certify to you that she has satisfied the requirements of the canons, and we believe her to be qualified for this order.

The Bishop says to the ordinand
Will you be loyal to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of Christ as this Church has received them? And will you, in accordance with the canons of this Church, obey your bishop and other ministers who may have authority over you and your work?

Ordinand: I am willing and ready to do so; and I solemnly declare that I do believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God, and to contain all things necessary to salvation; and I do solemnly engage to conform to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of the Episcopal Church.

The ordinand then signs the above Declaration in the sight of all present.
All stand. The Bishop says to the people
Dear friends in Christ, you know the importance of this ministry, and the weight of
your responsibility in presenting Catherine Rodman Reid Cox for ordination to the

The Ministry of the Word

A Reading from Numbers (11:16-17, 24-25a)

So the LORD said to Moses, “Gather for me seventy of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; bring them to the tent of meeting, and have them take their place there with you. I will come down and talk with you there; and I will take some of the spirit that is on you and put it on them; and they shall bear the burden of the people along with you so that you will not bear it all by yourself. So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy elders of the people, and placed them all around the tent. Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders.

Reader: Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s people.
People: Thanks be to God.

Please stand. Choir sings

Hymn “Take my life, and let it be”
Take my life, and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to thee;
take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands, and let them move
at the impulse of thy love;
take my heart, it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne.

Take my voice, and let me sing
always, only, for my King;
take my intellect, and use
every power as thou shalt choose.
Take my will, and make it thine;
it shall be no longer mine.
Take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee.

Please be seated
Choir sings
Psalm (132:8-19) Memento, Domine Anglican Chant (Edwards)
Arise, O LORD, into your resting-place,
you and the ark of your strength.
Let your priests be clothed with righteousness;
let your faithful people sing with joy.
For your servant David’s sake,
do not turn away the face of your Anointed.
The LORD has sworn an oath to David;
in truth, he will not break it:
“A son, the fruit of your body
will I set upon your throne.
If your children keep my covenant
and my testimonies that I shall teach them,
their children will sit upon your throne for evermore.”
For the LORD has chosen Zion;
he has desired her for his habitation:
“This shall be my resting-place for ever;
here will I dwell, for I delight in her.
I will surely bless her provisions,
and satisfy her poor with bread.
I will clothe her priests with salvation,
and her faithful people will rejoice and sing.
There will I make the horn of David flourish;
I have prepared a lamp for my Anointed.
As for his enemies, I will clothe them with shame;
but as for him, his crown will shine.”

A Reading from Philippians (4:4-9)
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

Reader: Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s people.
People: Thanks be to God.

Hymn “I, the Lord of sea and sky”
I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in deepest sin
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me,
I will hold your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people’s pain.
I have wept for love of them,
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them.
Whom shall I send?

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?
Please remain standing for the reading of the Gospel.

A Priest reads the Gospel, first saying

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John (10: 11-18)

People: Glory to you, Lord Christ.
Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away—and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father.”
Priest: The Gospel of the Lord.
People: Praise to you, Lord Christ.
Sung by choir
Celtic Alleluia Christopher Walker

The Sermon The Very Reverend David Hodges
Please stand

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.

The Examination
All are seated except the ordinand, who stands before the Bishop. The Bishop addresses her as follows
My sister, the Church is the family of God, the body of Christ, and the temple of the Holy Spirit. All baptized people are called to make Christ known as Savior and Lord, and to share in the renewing of his world. Now you are called to work as a pastor, priest, and teacher, together with your bishop and fellow presbyters, and to take your share in the councils of the Church.
As a priest, it will be your task to proclaim by word and deed the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to fashion your life in accordance with its precepts. You are to love and serve the people among whom you work, caring alike for young and old, strong and weak, rich and poor. You are to preach, to declare God’s forgiveness to penitent sinners, to pronounce God’s blessing, to share in the administration of Holy Baptism and in the celebration of the mysteries of Christ’s Body and Blood, and to perform the other ministrations entrusted to you.
In all that you do, you are to nourish Christ’s people from the riches of his grace, and strengthen them to glorify God in this life and in the life to come.
Bishop: My sister do you believe that you are truly called by God and his Church to this priesthood?
Ordinand: I believe I am so called.
Bishop: Do you now in the presence of the Church commit yourself to this trust and responsibility?
Ordinand: I do.
Bishop: Will you respect and be guided by the pastoral direction and leadership of your bishop?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: Will you be diligent in the reading and study of the Holy Scriptures, and in seeking the knowledge of such things as may make you a stronger and more able minister of Christ?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: Will you endeavor so to minister the Word of God and the sacraments of the New Covenant, that the reconciling love of Christ may be known and received?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: Will you undertake to be a faithful pastor to all whom you are called to serve, laboring together with them and with your fellow ministers to build up the family of God?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: Will you do your best to pattern your life in accordance with the teachings of Christ, so that you may be a wholesome example to your people?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: Will you persevere in prayer, both in public and in private, asking God’s grace, both for yourself and for others, offering all your labors to God, through the mediation of Jesus Christ, and in the sanctification of the Holy Spirit?
Ordinand: I will.
Bishop: May the Lord who has given you the will to do these things give you the grace and power to perform them.
Ordinand: Amen.
The Consecration of the Priest
All now stand except the ordinand, who kneels facing the Bishop and the presbyters who stand to the right and left of the Bishop
The following hymn is sung by the choir

Hymn “Veni Sancte Spiritus” Berthier/Taizé
A period of silent prayer follows, the people still standing
The Bishop then says this Prayer of Consecration
God and Father of all, we praise you for your infinite love in calling us to be a holy
people in the kingdom of your Son Jesus our Lord, who is the image of your eternal
and invisible glory, the firstborn among many brethren, and the head of the Church.
We thank you that by his death he has overcome death, and, having ascended into
heaven, has poured his gifts abundantly upon your people, making some apostles,
some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for
the work of ministry and the building up of his body

Here the Bishop lays hands upon the head of the ordinand, the Priests who are present also laying on their hands. At the same time the Bishop prays
Therefore, Father, through Jesus Christ your Son, give your Holy Spirit to Catherine;
fill her with grace and power, and make her a priest in your Church. May she exalt
you, O Lord, in the midst of your people; offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to you;
boldly proclaim the gospel of salvation; and rightly administer the sacraments of the
New Covenant. Make her a faithful pastor, a patient teacher, and a wise councilor.
Grant that in all things she may serve without reproach, so that your people may be
strengthened, and your Name glorified in all the world. All this we ask through Jesus
Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever
and ever.

The People in a loud voice respond
Amen.
The new Priest is now vested according to the order of priests by her children, Sarah Caldwell, Rachel Caldwell and Lt. Patrick Caldwell.
The Bishop then gives a Bible to the newly ordained, saying
Receive this Bible as a sign of the authority given you to preach the Word of God
and to administer his holy Sacraments. Do not forget the trust committed to you as
a priest of the Church of God.
The Peace
The Bishop greets the newly ordained. The new Priest then says to the congregation
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
People: And also with you.
The Offertory

Today’s offering will be added to the discretionary funds for Catherine to be utilized for charitable purposes, assisting those in need

Anthem Rejoice in the Lord Alway 16th c. Anonymous
Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say, rejoice. Let your softness be known unto all men: the Lord is e’en at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in all prayer and supplication, let your petitions be manifest unto God with giving of thanks. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesu. Amen

The Great Thanksgiving
Standing at the Lord’s Table, with the Bishop, the newly ordained Priest joins in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and in the breaking of the Bread.
Please stand
Bishop: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.
Bishop: Lift up your hearts.
People: We lift them to the Lord.
Bishop: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
People: It is right to give God thanks and praise.

The Bishop continues
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 the great shepherd of your flock, Jesus Christ our Lord; who after his resurrection sent forth his apostles to preach the Gospel and to teach all nations; and promised to be with them always, even to the end of the ages.

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

Sung by choir
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

The Bishop continues
We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be your people; in your Word spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh, Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world. In him, you have delivered us from evil, and made us worthy to stand before you. In him, you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life.
On the night before he died for us, 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, according to his command, O Father,

All say

We remember his death,
We proclaim his resurrection,
We await his coming in glory;

The Bishop continues

And we offer our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to you, O Lord of all; presenting to you, from your creation, this bread and this wine.
We pray you, gracious God, to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts that they may be the Sacrament of the Body of Christ and his Blood of the new Covenant. Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice, that we may be acceptable through him, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time, put all things in subjection under your Christ, and bring us to that heavenly country where, with the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, and all your saints, we may enter the everlasting heritage of your sons and daughters; through Jesus Christ our Lord, the firstborn of all creation, the head of the Church, and the author of our salvation.
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.
All: AMEN.
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 Bishop breaks the consecrated bread. A period of silence is kept. Then the choir sings

(Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.)
Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;
Therefore let us keep the feast.
(Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.)

The Bishop offers the consecrated bread to the people

Bishop: The Gifts of God for the People of God.
Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, feed on him in your hearts by faith, with thanksgiving.

All baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion. If you would prefer to receive a blessing, make your desire known by crossing your arms across your chest. Please come forward using the center aisle, and return to your seats using the side aisles.

Choir sings
Hymn: “Humbly I adore thee”
Humbly I adore thee, Verity unseen,
who thy glory hidest ‘neath these shadows mean;
lo, to thee surrendered, my whole heart is bowed,
tranced as it beholds thee, shrined within the cloud.

Taste and touch and vision to discern thee fail;
faith, that comes by hearing, pierces through the veil.
I believe whate’er the Son of God hath told;
what the Truth hath spoken, that for truth I hold.

O memorial wondrous of the Lord’s own death;
living Bread that givest all thy creatures breath,
grant my spirit ever by thy life may live,
to my taste thy sweetness never-failing give.

Jesus, whom now hidden, I by faith behold,
what my soul doth long for, that thy word foretold:
face to face thy splendor, I at last shall see,
in the glorious vision, blessed Lord, of thee.

Anthem “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” J.S. Bach

Jesu joy of man’s desiring
Holy wisdom, love most bright
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned
With the fire of life impassioned
Striving still to truth unknown
Soaring, dying round Thy throne

After Communion, the Bishop says

Let us pray.
Please stand
Bishop and People
Almighty Father, we thank you for feeding us with the holy food of the Body and Blood of your Son, and for uniting us through him in the fellowship of your Holy Spirit. We thank you for raising up among us faithful servants for the ministry of your Word and Sacraments. We pray that Catherine may be to us an effective example in word and action, in love and patience, and in holiness of life. Grant that we, with her, may serve you now, and always rejoice in your glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Bishop then asks the new priest to bless the people

The new Priest says

The blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always. Amen.

Choir sings

Hymn “Lift high the cross”

Lift high the cross,
the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adore
his sacred Name.

Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
the hosts of God in conquering ranks combine.

Each new-born servant of the Crucified
bears on the brow the seal of him who died.

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
as thou hast promised, draw the world to thee.

So shall our song of triumph ever be:
praise to the Crucified for victory.

A Priest dismisses the people
Let us go forth in the name of Christ.
People: Thanks be to God.
