our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

The Communion

Anthem: Sicut Cervus by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum: ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.

As the deer longs for running water, so longs my soul for you, O God.

Prayer after Communion        

We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
