    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 Fourth Sunday after Easter,
    May 2nd, 2021

    Psalm 116. Dilexi, quoniam.

    MY delight is in the LORD; * because he hath heard the voice of my prayer;
    2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me; * therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
    3 The snares of death compassed me round about, * and the pains of hell gat hold upon me.
    4 I found trouble and heaviness; then called I upon the Name of the LORD; * O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
    5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; * yea, our God is merciful.
    6 The LORD preserveth the simple: * I was in misery, and he helped me
    7 Turn again then unto thy rest, O my soul; * for the LORD hath rewarded thee.
    8 And why? thou hast delivered my soul from death, * mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
    9 I will walk before the LORD * in the land of the living.
    10 I believed, and therefore will I speak; but I was sore troubled: * I said in my haste, All men are liars.
    11 What reward shall I give unto the LORD * for all the benefits that he hath done unto me?
    12 I will receive the cup of salvation, * and call upon the Name of the LORD.
    13 I will pay my vows now in the presence of all his people: * right dear in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
    14 Behold, O LORD, how that I am thy servant; * I am thy servant, and the son of thine1 handmaid; thou hast broken my bonds in sunder.
    15 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, * and will call upon the Name of the LORD.
    16 I will pay my vows unto the LORD, in the sight of all his people, * in the courts of the LORD’S house; even in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.

    First Lesson - Job 19: 21-27

    Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another.

    Second Lesson - John 12: 44

    Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.


    Epistle and Gospel for The Fourth Sunday after Easter,
    May 2nd, 2021

    Collect for the Feast of Saint Mark the Evangelist

    O ALMIGHTY God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men: grant unto thy people that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world our hearts may surely there be fixed, where true joys are to be found. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

    Epistle - Saint James. 1:17

    Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

    Gospel - Saint John 16:5

    Jesus said unto his disciples, Now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
