Collect of the Day

Creator God,

You prepare a new way in the wilderness

and water the desert.

Help us to recognize your hand

Working miracles beyond our imagining.

Open our hearts to be transformed

by the new thing you are doing,

So that our lives may proclaim

The extravagance of your love for all,

And its presence in Jesus Christ. Amen.

Anthem : Ave verum corpus by William Byrd

Ave verum corpus, natum de Maria virgine; vere passum immolatum in crucis pro homine. Cuius latus perforatum unda fluxit sanguine. Esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine. O dulcis, o pie, O Jesu Fili Mariae, miserere mei. Amen.

Hail, true body, born of the virgin Mary; who has truly suffered, slaughtered

on the Cross for humanity. Whose side was pierced, pouring out water and blood.

Be a foretaste for us during our ordeal of death.

O sweet, o holy, O Jesus Son of Mary, have mercy on me. Amen.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.

LENTEN STUDY: Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, and Prayer. By Rowan Williams. In this simple, beautifully written book Rowan Williams explores four essential components of the Christian life: baptism, Bible, Eucharist, and prayer. Despite huge differences in Christian thinking and practice both today and in past centuries, he says, these four basic elements have remained constant and indispensable for the majority of those who call themselves Christians. Study begins Tuesday March 12th and will run for 5 weeks ending April 9th. We will meet each week in the Canterbury room and the start time is 7pm and finishes at 8pm.

PARISH COUNCIL TIME CHANGEApril Parish Council meeting will take place on Tuesday April 9th. It will precede the Lenten Study Group that begins at 7:00pm. Parish Council will meet for an hour, from 6:00-7pm. This takes into account people who attend both the council meeting and the Lenten Study.
