The Holy Eucharist

PRELUDE


PROCESSIONAL All Creatures of Our God and King


THE OPENING ACCLAMATION

Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

And blessed be His kingdom, now and forever. Amen.


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

Glory to God in the highest,

and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King,

almighty God and Father,

we worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,

Lord God, Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world:

have mercy on us;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father:

receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High,

Jesus Christ,

with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father. Amen.


THE COLLECT OF THE DAY

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.


Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for, as you always resist the

proud who confide in their own strength, so you never forsake those who make their

boast of your mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you

and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


THE LITURGY OF THE WORD


THE FIRST LESSON Exodus 12:1-14


The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall mark for

you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for you. Tell the

whole congregation of Israel that on the tenth of this month they are to take a lamb

for each family, a lamb for each household. If a household is too small for a whole

lamb, it shall join its closest neighbor in obtaining one; the lamb shall be divided in

proportion to the number of people who eat of it. Your lamb shall be without

blemish, a year-old male; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You

shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembled

congregation of Israel shall slaughter it at twilight. They shall take some of the

blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat

it. They shall eat the lamb that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire

with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water,

but roasted over the fire, with its head, legs, and inner organs. You shall let none of

it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn.

This is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your

staff in your hand; and you shall eat it hurriedly. It is the passover of the LORD. For I

will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike down every firstborn

in the land of Egypt, both human beings and animals; on all the gods of Egypt I will

execute judgments: I am the LORD. The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses

where you live: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall

destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.


This day shall be a day of remembrance for you. You shall celebrate it as a festival

to the LORD; throughout your generations you shall observe it as a perpetual

ordinance.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


PSALM 149

Cantate Domino

1 Hallelujah!

Sing to the LORD a new song; *

sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful.

2 Let Israel rejoice in his Maker; *

let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his Name in the dance; *

let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.

4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people *

and adorns the poor with victory.

5 Let the faithful rejoice in triumph; *

let them be joyful on their beds.

6 Let the praises of God be in their throat *

and a two-edged sword in their hand;

7 To wreak vengeance on the nations *

and punishment on the peoples;

8 To bind their kings in chains *

and their nobles with links of iron;

9 To inflict on them the judgment decreed; *

this is glory for all his faithful people.

Hallelujah!


THE SECOND LESSON: Romans 13:8-14


Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another

has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall

not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet”; and any other commandment,

are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong

to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.


Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake

from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; the

night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and

put on the armor of light; let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and

drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.

Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify

its desires.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


SEQUENCE HYMN: Jesu, Jesu


THE GOSPEL: MATTHEW 18:15-20

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

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


Jesus said, “If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the

fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have

regained that one. But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with

you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three

witnesses. If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if the

offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile

and a tax collector. Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in

heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I

tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you

by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am

there among them.”


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.


THE SERMON: The Rev’d. Hank Tuell


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 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 PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

(The Leader and People pray responsively)


Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church;

That we all may be one.

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and

humbly serve you;

That your Name may be glorified by all people.

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;

That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and

Sacraments.

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations

of the world;

That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;

That our works may find favor in your sight.

Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble, especially especially Dr. John Abraham, Generosa Aceveda, Jim Adams, Bernard Anderson, Cathy Aviiiiolla, Harold

Carrington, Mathew Cassone, Gweneth Chase, Trevor Chase, Carole Cramer, George

Cramer, Paul DeFelice, Michael DeLuca, Jr., Francine Densieski, Arthur Elwell,

Anthony Esposito, Ray Gant, Dillon Gonzalez, Henrietta Gowac, Dice Grigg,

Christopher Guarente, Dan Italiano, Pauline Johnson, Chris Kilpert, David Kline,

Robert Lane, and all those on our prayer list.

That they may be delivered from their distress.

Give to the departed eternal rest, especially Fletcher Vaughn Martin, Jr..

Let light perpetual shine upon them.

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;

May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.

(Silence)


Concluding Collect

Almighty and eternal God, ruler of all things in heaven and

earth: Mercifully accept the prayers of your people, and

strengthen us to do your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.


THE CONFESSION


Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.


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.


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.


THE ANNOUNCEMENTS


THE OFFERTORY HYMN: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You


THE GREAT THANKSGIVING


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.


God of all power, Ruler of the Universe, you are worthy of

glory and praise.

Glory to you for ever and ever.

At your command all things came to be: the vast expanse of

interstellar space, galaxies, suns, the planets in their courses,

and this fragile earth, our island home.

By your will they were created and have their being.

From the primal elements you brought forth the human race,

and blessed us with memory, reason, and skill. You made us

the rulers of creation. But we turned against you, and betrayed

your trust; and we turned against one another.

Have mercy, Lord, for we are sinners in your sight

Again and again, you called us to return. Through prophets

and sages you revealed your righteous Law. And in the

fullness of time you sent your only Son, born of a woman, to

fulfill your Law, to open for us the way of freedom and peace.

By his blood, he reconciled us.

By his wounds, we are healed.

And therefore we praise you, joining with the heavenly

chorus, with prophets, apostles, and martyrs, and with all

those in every generation who have looked to you in hope, to

proclaim with them your glory, in their unending hymn:


Celebrant and People

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 Celebrant continues

And so, Father, we who have been redeemed by him, and

made a new people by water and the Spirit, now bring before

you these gifts. Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be the

Body and Blood of Jesus Christ our Lord.

On the night he was betrayed he took bread, said the

blessing, broke the bread, and gave it to his friends, 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, gave thanks, 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.”

Remembering now his work of redemption, and offering to

you this sacrifice of thanksgiving,

We celebrate his death and resurrection,

as we await the day of his coming.

Lord God of our Fathers; God of Abraham, Isaac, and

Jacob; God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ: Open our

eyes to see your hand at work in the world about us. Deliver

us from the presumption of coming to this Table for solace

only, and not for strength; for pardon only, and not for

renewal. Let the grace of this Holy Communion make us one

body, one spirit in Christ, that we may worthily serve the

world in his name.

Risen Lord, be known to us in the breaking of the Bread

Accept these prayers and praises, Father, through Jesus

Christ our great High Priest, to whom, with you and the

Holy Spirit, your Church gives honor, glory, and worship,

from generation to generation. AMEN.

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


THE LORD'S PRAYER


THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD

Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.

Therefore, let us keep the feast. Alleluia.


Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.


THE COMMUNION


COMMUNION HYMN: Come With Us, O Blessed Lord


THE POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Almighty and ever living 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 honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
