Prelude: Christe aller Welt Trost BWV670 by J.S. Bach

During the service there are many occasions where we stand for
lengthy periods. If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling,
please feel free to do so.

The churches of our Diocese stand on the traditional territories of the Algonquin and Mohawk Nations. May we dwell on these lands always with respect and peace.

God our Father,
your Son Jesus Christ was obedient to the end
and drank the cup prepared for him:
May we who share his table
watch with him through the night of suffering
and be faithful.  Amen.

The Communion

Communion 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    

Compassionate God,
you have fed us with the bread of heaven.
Sustain us in our Lenten pilgrimage;
may our fasting be hunger for justice;
our alms, a making of peace;
and our prayer, the song of grateful hearts;
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
