A Reading from Isaiah (53:4-12)

 

Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole,

and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By a perversion of justice he was taken away. Who could have imagined his future? For he was cut off from the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people. They made his grave with the wicked and his tomb with the rich, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him with pain. When you make his life an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, and shall prolong his days; through him the will of the Lord shall prosper. Out of his anguish he shall see light; he shall find satisfaction through his knowledge. The righteous one, my servant, shall make many righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will allot him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All say

 

Psalm (91:9-16)

 

Because you have made the Lord your refuge,

and the Most High your habitation,

There shall no evil happen to you,

neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over you,

to keep you in all your ways.

They shall bear you in their hands,

lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and adder;

you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.

Because he is bound to me in love,

therefore will I deliver him;

I will protect him, because he knows my Name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;

I am with him in trouble;

I will rescue him and bring him to honor.

With long life will I satisfy him,

and show him my salvation.

 

A Reading from Hebrews (5:1-10)

 

Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness; and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people. And one does not presume to take this honor, but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaron was. So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; as he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.” In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All stand

 

Hymn 443                                               “From God Christ’s deity came forth”

 

 

 

                                                                                                

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark (10:35-45)

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to Jesus and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” And he said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They replied, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus called them and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

 

The reader pauses and then concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

 

Sermon                                                                                                                                

Please stand and all say

 

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.

 

Leader

 

Let us approach the throne of grace and pray in the name of Jesus, who bore the sins of many saying, Lord, have mercy.

 

For this holy gathering, and for the people of God in every place.

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 our Deacon; for The Church of the Province of the West Indies in our Anglican cycle of prayer; for Church of the Upper Room, Lakin; The Rev. Rita Stockton in our Diocesan cycle of prayer; for Peggy Hulstine, Jamie Flaherty, Ginger Wooten and all who are celebrating birthdays this week; for all who are celebrating anniversaries this week.

Lord, have mercy.

For all the peoples of the earth and for their leaders; for Joe our President, Laura our Governor; Melissa 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 good weather, abundant fruits of the earth, and peaceful times.

Lord, have mercy.

For doctors, nurses, and hospital staff, and for all who work in the medical arts.

Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and the suffering, travelers and refugees, prisoners and their families, and the dying and 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

 

Source of eternal salvation, who gave us a great high priest in heaven, hear the prayers of your servants and let all your beings sing for joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Please remain standing

 

Deacon

 

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

 

Silence

 

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.

 

 

Celebrant

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

          And also with you.

 

Musical Offering               My Song is Love Unknown               Edwin T. Childs

 

My song is love unknown, My Savior’s love to me,

Love to the loveless shown That they might lovely be.

Oh, who am I, that for my sake

My Lord should take Frail flesh and die?

 

Sometimes they strew his way And his sweet praises sing,

Resounding all the day Hosannas to their King.

Then “Crucify” Is all their breath,

And for his death they thirst and cry.

 

Why, what has my Lord don To cause this rage and spite?

He made the lame to run, And gave the blind their sight.

What injuries! Yet there are why The Lord most high

So cruelly dies, So cruelly dies, My Savior dies,

My song of love So cruelly dies.

 

Here may I stay and sing Of Him my soul adores.

Never was love, dear king, Never was grief like yours!

This is my friend In whose sweet praise

I all my days Could gladly spend.

 

Samuel Crossman, ca. 1624-83

 

Following the musical offering, 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

 

The people stand as the Celebrant faces them and says

 

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.

 

For you are the source of light and life, you made us in your image, and called us to new life in Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

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 remain standing

 

Then 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.

 

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. Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your hearts by faith, with thanksgiving.

 

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. We offer a gluten free version of the Host. Please let the clergy know if you would like this option. Due to Covid concerns, wine can be received during communion in small individual cups.

 

All Sing

 

Hymn 313                                                           “Let thy Blood in mercy poured”

                                                                                     

After Communion, the Celebrant says

 

Let us pray.

 

Please stand

 

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.

 

The Celebrant blesses the people

Ministry Opportunities

 

Want to Serve and Just Need to Know How? The Cathedral is actively looking to support the following ministries.

 

Vestment Caretaker. The Cathedral is in need of someone who will monitor the condition and cleanliness of the vestments worn by acolytes and chalice bearers. This ministry involves regularly checking to see if albs or other vestments are in need of cleaning, and transporting them to and from the dry cleaners. Please contact the church office if you are interested in this important ministry.

 

Archivist. The Cathedral has a treasure of archival materials that deserve to be

preserved, protected, and shared with the community. If you have an interest in

serving as a volunteer Cathedral Archivist, please talk with Fr. Bobby.

 

Dean Search Committee. Names are actively being taken for members of the

congregation who are interested in serving on the search committee for the next Dean of the Cathedral. If you are interested in being nominated, please talk with Carolyn Peterson, other members of the Vestry or Fr. Bobby.   Names will be taken until October 20.

 

Multimedia Specialist. We are actively recruiting for the role of Cathedral

Multimedia Specialist. This person will ensure the effective live streaming of our Sunday Eucharist and coordinate and maintain the Cathedral internet site and social media platforms. This is a compensated role and is anticipated to require

approximately 10 hours of commitment per week.  Aside from Sunday live

streaming, this role can be done remotely. If you are interested in learning more, please talk to Fr. Bobby.

Tell Your Story

 

Recently we kicked off a new project. It’s something we experimented with before Covid-19. We hope this will become a regular activity. During coffee hour, a volunteer will explain how they came to the Episcopal church and to Christ Cathedral. Of course, a short Q&A session will follow. We hope this activity will help connect us to each other. If there’s enough enthusiasm for it, we’ll try to do this on the second Sunday of every month. If you are interested in sharing your story,

contact Steve at 785-502-0099 or
