Celebrant:        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

Celebrant:            O Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world:  We
                        commend this nation to your merciful care, that, being guided

Celebrant:            The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
                        according to__________________.
People                        Glory to you, Lord Christ.

at the conclusion of the reading:

Celebrant:            The Gospel of the Lord.
People                        Praise to you, Lord Christ.

All:                        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.

A sermon or homily may be preached.

Celebrant:            Let your light so shine before those you meet, that they may see your good                         works, and come to glorify God in heaven. 

An offertory is collected and a hymn or anthem may be sung.

Celebrant:            The Lord be with you.
People:                        And also with you.
Celebrant:            Lift up your hearts.
People:                        We lift them to the Lord.
Celebrant:            Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
People:                        It is right to give him thanks and praise.

Celebrant:            It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and every
                        where to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of
                        heaven and earth.

The proper preface for the day is then read by the Priest.

                        Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and
                        Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever
                        sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

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.

Celebrant:            Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us
                        for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become
                        subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus
                        Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human
                        nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the
                        God and Father of all.

                        He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself,
                        in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole

                        On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our
                        Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks
                        to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, 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; and when he had given
                        thanks, he gave it to them, 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.”

                        We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in
                        this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death,
                        resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.

                        Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the
                        Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new
                        and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully
                        receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy,
                        and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints
                        into the joy of your eternal kingdom.

                        All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and
                        with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor
                        and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.

                        As our Saviour Christ commanded and taught us we are bold to say:

                        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.

Celebrnat:                        The peace of the Lord be always with you.
People:                                    And also with you.

Celebrant:                   Christ our Pascal lamb was offered up for us, once for all, 
                                    when he bore our sins on his body upon the cross, 
                                    for he is the very lamb of  God, that takes away the sins 
                                    of the world; wherefore let us keep a joyful and holy 
                                    feast with the Lord.

                                    Jesus said, “The first commandment is this: Hear, O Israel:
                                    The Lord our God is the only Lord. Love the Lord your
                                    God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your
                                    mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: Love
                                    your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment
                                    greater than these.”   Mark 12:29 31

                                    Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Silence is kept.

All:                                    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.

Celebrant:                        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.

                                    If you seek God then hear the Word of God.

                                    Come to me, all that travail and are heavy laden, and
                                    I will refresh you.  Matthew 11:28

                                    God so loved the world, that God’s only begotten Son was given,
                                    to the end that all that believe in Jesus Christ should not perish, but
                                    have everlasting life.  John 3:16

                                    This is a true saying, and worthy to be received by all who hear,
                                    that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
                                                                                                            1 Timothy 1:15

                                    If any sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus
                                    Christ the righteous; and he is the perfect offering for our
                                    sins, and not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole
                                    world.  1 John 2:1 2

All:                                    We do not presume to come to this your Table, O merciful
                                    Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold
                                    and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather
                                    up the crumbs under your Table. But you are the same Lord
                                    whose property is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore,
                                    gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your dear Son Jesus Christ,
                                    and to drink his blood, that we may evermore dwell in him,
                                    and he in us. Amen.

Celebrant:                        O Lamb of God,
All:                                    That takes away the sins of the world,
                                    have mercy upon us.
                                    O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world,
                                    grant us your peace.

The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds, and then immediately deliver it
to the people.

when all have received:

Celebrant:                        The Lord be with you;
People:                                    And also with you.
Celebrant:                        Let us pray.
All:                                    Almighty and everliving 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 for ever. Amen.

Celebrant:                        The Peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep you hearts                                                      and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus                                                     Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the                                                    Son, and the Holy Spirit, be amongst you and remain with you                                                                always. Amen
