 O quam gloriosum est regnum, in quo cum Christo gaudent omnes Sancti.
 Amicti stolis albis, sequuntur Agnum quocumque ierit.

 O how glorious is the kingdom, where all the Saints rejoice with Christ.
 Dressed in white robes, they follow the Lamb wheresoever he goes.

SERMON            Sheepishly Missional


PRAYERS FOR THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED


CONFESSION OF SINS
 Eternal God, in whom we live and move and have our being, whose face is hidden from us by our sin, and
 whose mercy we forget: Cleanse us from all offenses, and deliver us from proud thoughts and vain desires;
 that humbly we may draw near to thee, confessing our faults, confiding in thy grace, and finding in thee
 our refuge and our strength, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

                           THE ORDER FOR HOLY COMMUNION



THE PRAYER OF PRESENTATION
 The congregation standing
 Minister:       Blessed art thou, Lord God of all creation. Through thy goodness we have this bread and
                 wine to offer, fruit of the earth and of human labor. They will become for us the bread of
                 life and cup of salvation.
 People:         Blessed be God for ever.


THE PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
 Minister:       The Lord be with you.
 People:         And with thy spirit.
 Minister:       Lift up your hearts.
 People:         We lift them up unto the Lord.
 Minister:       Let us give thanks unto the Lord our God.
 People:         It is meet and right so to do.
 The minister continues:
 It is very meet, right and our bounden duty, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks unto
 thee, O Lord, Holy Father, Almighty, everlasting God. Therefore with angels and archangels, and with
 all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious Name; evermore praising thee, and saying:


SANCTUS                                                                                       Healey Willan
 Choir and congregation                                                                        (1880–1968)
  The minister then continues:
  At supper with his disciples, our Lord took bread. When he had given thanks, he broke it, and
  gave it to his disciples and said: “Take, eat: this is my Body, which is given for you. Do this in
  remembrance of me.”
  After supper he took the cup of wine. When he had given thanks, he gave it to them and said: “Drink ye
  all of this; for 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 in remembrance of me.”
  Father, we now celebrate this memorial of our redemption: recalling Christ’s death and descent
  among the dead, proclaiming his Resurrection and Ascension to thy right hand, awaiting his coming
  in glory, and offering thee, from the gifts thou hast given us, this bread and this wine, we praise thee
  and we bless thee.
  Send thy Holy Spirit upon us and upon these gifts, that this bread may be for us the Body of Christ,
  this wine his Blood, and that all who share this bread and cup may become one body and one spirit,
  a living sacrifice in Christ to the glory of thy Name. In union with all the saints who have revealed
  thy grace in ages past, we praise thee and give thee glory through thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who
  hast taught us to pray:


THE LORD’S PRAYER
 In unison


THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD
 Silence is kept for a space, during which the bread is broken and wine is poured.
  Minister:         The bread which we break, is it not a sharing in the Body of Christ?
  People:           We, being many, are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.


THE INVITATION TO COMMUNION
 The minister says:
  Behold the Lamb of God who takest away the sins of the world. Draw near and receive the Body of
  Christ which was given for thee, and his blood which was shed for thee. Happy are they who are called
  to his supper.


AT THE COMMUNION
 Communicants will proceed to the foot of the chancel steps at the direction of the ushers and will return to their seats
 by the side aisles. At the giving of the bread and the cup, the people respond with “Amen.”
AGNUS DEI           from Missa O Quam Gloriosum                                              Tomás Luis de Victoria

 Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: miserere nobis.
 Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: miserere nobis.
 Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: dona nobis pacem.

 O Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us.
 O Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us.
 O Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world, grant us thy peace.


THE PRAYER FOLLOWING COMMUNION
 At the conclusion of the Communion, the minister says:
 Let us all pray:
 Almighty and everlasting God, we most heartily thank thee that thou dost feed us who have received these
 holy mysteries with the spiritual food of the most precious body and blood of thy Son our Savior Jesus
 Christ; and dost assure us thereby of thy favor and goodness towards us, and that we are very members
 incorporate in the mystical body of thy Son, the blessed company of all faithful people, and are also heirs,
 through hope, of thy everlasting kingdom. And we humbly beseech thee, O heavenly Father, so to assist
 us with thy grace, that we may continue in that holy fellowship, and do all such good works as thou hast
 prepared for us to walk in; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with thee and the Holy Spirit, be all
 honor and glory, world without end. Amen.
