Call to Worship: A Prayer of Saint Dominic

One: Blessed be God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit ☩

Many: And blessed be his Kingdom, now and forever. One: May God the Father, who made us, bless us. May God the Son, who redeemed us, send healing into our midst. May God the Holy Spirit, who gives us life, move within us.

Many: May God give us eyes to see to God, ears to hear God, and hands to bring God’s work into the world.

One: May we be prepared to walk with God and preach the word of God to all.

Come, let us worship.

Collect: Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. Liturgy of the Table: (Adapted From Lift Up Your Hearts: Year C, OSL Publications) One: The Lord be with you. Many: And also with you. One: Lift up your hearts. Many: We lift them up to the Lord One: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. Many: It is right to give our thanks and praise. One: It is right, and a good and joyful thing. Always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth Who shepherds and leads us as a flock.

. Many: 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. One: Holy are you, and blessed is your Son, Jesus Christ, who brings division as decisions must be made to either serve Kingdom or Empire.

He healed the sick, fed the hungry, and ate with sinners. By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection, you gave birth to your church, delivered us from slavery of sin and death, and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit. On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. And he said “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” When the supper was over he took the cup, gave thanks, gave it to his disciples, and said “Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

And so, in remembrance of these mighty acts in Jesus Christ, We offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ’s offering for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith. Many: Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again. **Placing hands over the elements to consecrate them** One: Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and cup. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ, that we m
