    Prayers to be Said Daily

    Parishioners are encouraged to say the following prayers daily during this challenging time:

    For Christian Service

    O LORD our heavenly Father, whose blessed Son came not to be ministered unto, but to minister; We beseech thee to bless all who, following in his steps, give themselves to the service of their fellow men. Endue them with wisdom, patience, and courage, that they may strengthen the weak and raise up those who fall; and, being inspired by thy love, may worthily minister in thy Name to the suffering, the friendless, and the needy; for the sake of him who laid down his life for us, the same thy Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    In Time of Calamity

    O GOD, merciful and compassionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers of those who put their trust in thee; Graciously hearken to us who call upon thee, and grant us thy help in this our need; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    In Time of Great Sickness and Mortality

    O MOST mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour. Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    A Prayer for the Clergy and People

    ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, from whom cometh every good and perfect gift; Send down upon our Bishops, and other Clergy, and upon the Congregations committed to their charge, the healthful Spirit of thy grace; and, that they may truly please thee, pour upon them the continual dew of thy blessing. Grant this, O Lord, for the honour of our Advocate and Mediator, Jesus Christ. Amen.


    Morning Prayer and Service of Spiritual Communion

    Parishioners are encouraged to say the Office of Daily Morning Prayer and the following service on Sunday mornings. The Collects, Psalms and readings for this coming Sunday will be displayed below the services.


    Spiritual Communion

    when unable to attend Mass

    In the Name of the ✠ Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

    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.

    Collect

    Let the Power of the Holy Spirt come upon me, O Lord, I beseech thee: that he may both mercifully cleanse my heart and defend me from all adversities. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    The Epistle appointed for the day, or Revelation 3:20

    Behold. I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

    The Gospel appointed for the day, or St. John 15:5

    I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    Act of Contrition

    O God, I am very sorry that I have sinned against thee who art so good. Forgive me for Jesus' sake, and I will try to sin no more.

    Act of Reception

    In Union, dear Lord, with the faithful at every altar of thy Church where thy blessed Body and Blood are being offered to the Father, I desire to offer thee praise and thanksgiving. I believe that thou art truly present in the Holy Sacrament. And since I cannot now receive thee sacramentally, I beseech thee to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself unto thee, and embrace thee with all the affections of my soul. Let me never be separated from thee. Let me live and die in thy love. Amen.

    Come Lord Jesus, dwell in thy servant in the fulness of thy strength, in the perfection of thy ways, and in the holiness of thy spirit, and rule over every hostile power in the might of thy Spirit, and to the glory of the Father. Amen.

    May the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ preserve my body and Soul unto everlasting life. Amen

    Act of Praise and Thanksgiving

    Blessed, praised, and adored be Jesus Christ on his throne of glory in Heaven, and in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.


    Psalms and Lessons for Morning Prayer for The Second Sunday in Lent,
    February 28th, 2021

    Psalm 86. Inclina, Domine.

    BOW down thine ear, O LORD, and hear me; * for I am poor, and in misery.
    2 Preserve thou my soul, for I am holy: * my God, save thy servant that putteth his trust in thee.
    3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord; * for I will call daily upon thee.
    4 Comfort the soul of thy servant; * for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
    5 For thou, Lord, art good and gracious, * and of great mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
    6 Give ear, LORD, unto my prayer, * and ponder the voice of my humble desires.
    7 In the time of my trouble I will call upon thee; * for thou hearest me.
    8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; * there is not one that can do as thou doest.
    9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship thee, O Lord; * and shall glorify thy Name.
    10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: * thou art God alone.
    11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and I will walk in thy truth: * O knit my heart unto thee, that I may fear thy Name.
    12 I will thank thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart; * and will praise thy Name for evermore.
    13 For great is thy mercy toward me; * and thou hast delivered my soul from the nethermost hell.
    14 O God, the proud are risen against me; * and the congregations of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set thee before their eyes.
    15 But thou, O Lord God, art full of compassion and mercy, * long-suffering, plenteous in goodness and truth.
    16 O turn thee then unto me, and have mercy upon me; * give thy strength unto thy servant, and help the son of thine handmaid.
    17 Show some token upon me for good; that they who hate me may see it, and be ashamed, * because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.

    Psalm 142. Voce mea ad Dominum.

    I CRIED unto the LORD with my voice; * yea, even unto the LORD did I make my supplication.
    2 I poured out my complaints before him, * and showed him of my trouble.
    3 When my spirit was in heaviness, thou knewest my path; * in the way wherein I walked, have they privily laid a snare for me.
    4 I looked also upon my right hand, * and saw there was no man that would know me.
    5 I had no place to flee unto, * and no man cared for my soul.
    6 I cried unto thee, O LORD, and said, * Thou art my hope, and my portion in the land of the living.
    7 Consider my complaint; * for I am brought very low.
    8 O deliver me from my persecutors; * for they are too strong for me.
    9 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks unto thy Name; * which thing if thou wilt grant me, then shall the righteous resort unto my company.

    First Lesson - I Kings 8:37–43

    If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpiller; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication soever be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house: Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;) That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers. Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of thy people Israel, but cometh out of a far country for thy name's sake; (For they shall hear of thy great name, and of thy strong hand, and of thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house; Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.

    Second Lesson - Colossians 3:12-17

    Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.


    Epistle and Gospel for The Second Sunday in Lent,
    February 28th, 2021

    Collect for The Second Sunday in Lent

    ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    The Epistle. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8

    WE beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: that every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: that no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

    The Gospel. St. Matthew 13:21-28

    JESUS went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said. Truth Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
