The Opening Acclamation

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!


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. Amen.

The Gloria in Excelsis

The Collect of the Day

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.


O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people: Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Liturgy of the Word


The First Lesson: Acts 16:9-15

During the night Paul had a vision: there stood a man of Macedonia pleading with him and saying, "Come over to Macedonia and help us." When he had seen the vision, we immediately tried to cross over to Macedonia, being convinced that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.

We set sail from Troas and took a straight course to Samothrace, the following day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of the district of Macedonia and a Roman colony. We remained in this city for some days. On the sabbath day we went outside the gate by the river, where we supposed there was a place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women who had gathered there. A certain woman named Lydia, a worshiper of God, was listening to us; she was from the city of Thyatira and a dealer in purple cloth. The Lord opened her heart to listen eagerly to what was said by Paul. When she and her household were baptized, she urged us, saying, "If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come and stay at my home." And she prevailed upon us.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Psalm 67: Deus misereatur

1 May God be merciful to us and bless us, * show us the light of his countenance and come to us.


2 Let your ways be known upon earth, * your saving health among all nations.


3 Let the peoples praise you, O God; * let all the peoples praise you.


4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, * for you judge the peoples with equity and guide all the nations upon earth.


5 Let the peoples praise you, O God; * let all the peoples praise you.


6 The earth has brought forth her increase; * may God, our own God, give us his blessing.


7 May God give us his blessing, * and may all the ends of the earth stand in awe of him.

The Second Lesson: Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5

In the spirit the angel carried me away to a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.

I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. Its gates will never be shut by day-- and there will be no night there. People will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations. But nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city. On either side of the river is the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there any more. But the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him; they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And there will be no more night; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The Gospel: John 14:23-29

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John.

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

Jesus said to Judas (not Iscariot), "Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.

"I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, `I am going away, and I am coming to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe."


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

The Sermon: The Rev’d. Hank Tuell

Please stand as you are able


The Nicene Creed

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 worshipped 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 Prayers of the People

Gathered as believers who are one in heart and soul, let us pray through Jesus the Son of God, gloriously risen from the dead, saying: Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.

For the Church, especially for Michael, our Presiding Bishop, and Andrew, Allen and Mary our bishops, Hank our clergy, that through the gift of the Spirit, we may recognize God’s presence with us.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For the St. John’s parish family, that we who have not seen the Risen Lord, and yet have come to believe, may be blessed in sharing the peace, and forgiveness we have received.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For all who are wounded in any way, that we may see Christ in the wounds of those around us, and be instruments of healing and peace in their lives.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For the gift of peace, that Christ’s gift may abide with us, and sustain us, through all the challenges of life.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For all those in need, especially those in Ukraine, and all who suffer violence, are recovering from natural disasters, or lack resources for daily living, that the Risen Christ will visit them with healing power, and new hope.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For those in need of our prayers, remembering especially: Madeleine Marchetti, Brian Orlick, John Owens, Kimberly Phillips, Lynn Phimister, Robert Ross, Walter Robert Shields, Diane Sprosty, Jennifer Sprosty, James Sutler, Christopher Traina, and for all those on our prayer list and for all who are suffering from Covid-19 that the Spirit will renew in them the gift of life.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


For those who have died, that they may now rejoice and be glad in fellowship with the Risen Christ.

Alleluia! Lord, hear our prayer.


Lifting our voices with all creation, with the Virgin Mary the God-bearer, St. John the Evangelist, and all those who have borne witness to the Risen Christ, let us offer ourselves and one another to the living God through Christ.

Alleluia! To you, O Lord, we give praise and glory.


Concluding Collect

O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Confession

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbour.


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 neighbours 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.


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.


The Peace

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

And also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

Offertory Hymn: All Creatures of Our God and King, Page 21


The Great Thanksgiving – B


The Sursum Corta


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

Here a Proper Preface is sung or said on all Sundays, and on other occasions as appointed.

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:


The Sanctus & Benedictus: S-128


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.


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 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,

We remember his death,

We proclaim his resurrection,

We await his coming in glory;

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 Virgin Mary, Saint John 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 honour and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.


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


The Breaking of the Bread

The Presider breaks the consecrated Bread. A period of silence is kept.


Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.

Therefore, let us keep the feast. Alleluia.


The Communion

The gifts of God for the people of God.

(All are welcome to receive communion. If you would like the host intincted in the wine please leave it in your hand and the Eucharistic Minister will intinct the host in the wine.)

Let us pray.

Almighty and everliving God, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal kingdom. And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honour and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
