Let us offer one another, a
sign of peace
The Lord is here.
His Spirit is with us.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the
Lord our God.
It is right to give thanks
and praise.
It is right to praise you,
Father, Lord of all creation;
in your love you made us
for yourself.
When we turned away
you did not reject us,
but came to meet us in
your Son.
You embraced us as your
children and welcomed us
to sit and eat with you.
In Christ you shared our
life, that we might live in
him, and he in us.
He opened his arms of
love upon the cross and
made for all the perfect
sacrifice for sin.
On the night he was betrayed,
at supper with his friends
he took bread, and gave you
he broke it and gave it to them,
saying: Take, eat;
this is my body which is given for
do this in remembrance of me.
At the end of supper,
taking the cup of wine, he
gave you thanks, and said:
Drink this, all of you;
for this is my blood of the
new covenant, which is
shed for you for the
forgiveness of sins;
do this in remembrance of
As we proclaim his death
and celebrate his rising in
send your Holy Spirit that
this bread and this wine,
may be to us the body and
blood of your dear Son.
As we eat and drink these
holy gifts make us one in
Christ, our risen Lord.
With your whole Church
throughout the world,
we offer you this sacrifice
of praise,
and lift our voice, to join
the eternal song of
Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
Heaven and earth are full
of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he that comes in
the name of the Lord –
Hosanna in the highest.
Great is the mystery of
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ WILL come again
We pray for the coming of God’s
Kingdom as Jesus taught us.
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will
be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin
against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours, now
and for ever. Amen.
We break this bread
to share in the body of
Christ .
Though we are many, we
are one body, because we
all share in one bread.
Draw near with faith.
Receive the body of our
Lord Jesus Christ which he
gave for you, and his blood
which he shed for you.
Eat and drink in
remembrance that he died
for you, and feed on him in
your hearts,
by faith with thanksgiving.
Alleluia, Christ our
Passover lamb is sacrificed
for us
