ST. LUKE’S MISSION STATEMENT
“TO KNOW CHRIST AND MAKE HIM KNOWN IN WORD AND DEED”
10:30 AM HOLY COMMUNION
PRAISE MY SOUL THE KING OF HEVEN
# 381 Tune: Praise My Soul
1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to his feet your tribute bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore his praises sing.
praise the everlasting King.
2. Praise him for his grace and favor
to our forebears in distress;
praise him, still the same for ever,
slow to chide and swift to bless;
glorious in his faithfulness.
3. Fatherlike, he tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hand he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes:
widely yet his mercy flows.
4. Frail as summer's flowers we flourish;
blows the wind and it is gone;
but, while mortals rise and perish,
God endures unchanging on:
praise the high eternal one.
5. Angels, help us to adore him;
you behold him face to face;
sun and moon bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space.
praise with us the God of grace.
THE GATHERING of the COMMUNITY
Leader: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
All: And also with you.

All: To you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen

PRAYER of the DAY

Join us together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may become a holy temple, acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
(Please be seated)
HEARING GOD’S WORD TO US
Leader: Dear friends in Christ, as scripture is read, let us allow God’s word to speak to us and ponder its meaning for our lives.
A READING FROM
THE BOOK OF LAMENTATION
How lonely sits the city that once was full of people! How like a widow she has become, she that was great among the nations! She that was a princess among the provinces has become a vassal. She weeps bitterly in the night, with tears on her cheeks; among all her lovers she has no one to comfort her; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies. Judah has gone into exile with suffering and hard servitude; she lives now among the nations, and finds no resting place; her pursuers have all overtaken her in the midst of her distress. The roads to Zion mourn, for no one comes to the festivals; all her gates are desolate, her priests groan; her young girls grieve, and her lot is bitter. Her foes have become the masters, her enemies prosper, because the Lord has made her suffer for the multitude of her transgressions; her children have gone away, captives before the foe. From daughter Zion has departed all her majesty. Her princes have become like stags that find no pasture; they fled without strength before the pursuer. The Word of the Lord
All: Thanks be to God
The thought of my affliction and my homelessness is wormwood and gall! My soul continually thinks of it and is bowed down within me. But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. R
"The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him." The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul
that seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. R
2 TIMOTHY 1: 1-7
A READING FROM THE SECOND LETTER OF PAUL TO TIMOTHY
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, for the sake of the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I am grateful to God - whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did - when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. Recalling your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the lying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.
The Word of the Lord
PRAISE THE ONE BREAKS THE DARKNESS
# 397 Tune: Nettleton
1. Praise the one who breaks the darkness
with a liberating light.
Praise the one who frees the prisoners,
turning blindness into sight.
Praise the one who preached the Gospel,
healing every dread disease,
calming storms and feeding thousands
with the very bread of peace.
2. Praise the one who blessed the children
with a strong yet gentle word.
Praise the one who drove out demons
with a piercing two-edged sword.
Praise the one who brings cool water
to the desert's burning sand.
From this well comes living water,
quenching thirst in every land.
3. Praise the one true love incarnate:
Christ who suffered in our place.
Jesus died and rose for many
that we may know God by grace.
Let us sing for joy and gladness,
seeing what our God has done.
Praise the one redeeming glory,
praise the One who makes us one.
Gospeller: The Lord be with you.
Gospeller: THE HOLY GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ACCORDING TO LUKE
The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" The Lord replied, "If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you. Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, 'Come here at once and take your place at the table'? Would you not rather say to him, 'Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink'? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, 'We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!'"
THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST
THE REVEREND KEITH TODD
“Keep going, keep going.”
THE APOSTLE’S CREED
Celebrant: Let us confess our faith of our baptism, as we say,
All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
(please kneel or sit)
CONFESSION and ABSOLUTION
Celebrant: Dear sisters and brothers in Christ, God is steadfast in love and infinite in mercy; he welcomes sinners and invites them to his table. Let us confess our sins confident in God’s forgiveness.
Celebrant: Most merciful God,
All: 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 neighbours 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 upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your
sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and keep you in eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
SHARING GOD’S PEACE
Celebrant: The peace of the Lord be always with you
All: And also with you
Please greet those nearest you with God’s peace.
If you leave your pew, please return to your seats as soon as any music begins, so that those bringing the gifts forward, at “give thanks” will have an unobstructed aisle.

O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES TO SING #306 Tune: Richmond
1. O for a thousand tongues to sing
my dear Redeemer's praise,
the glories of my God and King,
the triumphs of his grace.
2. Jesus! the Name that charms our fears,
that bids our sorrows cease;
'tis music in the sinner's ears,
'tis life, and health, and peace.
3. He speaks, and, listening to his voice,
new life the dead receive,
the mournful broken hearts rejoice,
the humble poor believe.
4. Hear him, ye deaf, ye voiceless ones,
your loosened tongues employ;
ye blind, behold, your Savior come,
and leap, ye lame, for joy!
5. My gracious Master and my God,
assist me to proclaim,
to spread through all the earth abroad
the honors of thy Name.
THE PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS
Celebrant: Together, let us pray
All: God of truth, receive all we offer you this day. Make us worthy servants,
strong to follow in the pattern of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
THE GREAT THANKSGIVING
Eucharistic Prayer # 5
Celebrant: We give you thanks and praise, almighty God, for the gift of a world full of
wonder, and for our life which comes from you. By your power you sustain the universe
Celebrant: You created us to love you with all our heart, and to love each other as ourselves, but we rebel against you by the evil that we do. In Jesus, your Son, you bring healing to our world and gather us into one great family. Therefore, with all who serve you on earth and in heaven, we praise your wonderful name, as we sing:
Sanctus and Benedictus
Celebrant: We give thanks and praise, loving Father, because in sending Jesus, your Son, to us you showed us how much you love us. He cares for the poor and the hungry. He suffers with the sick and the rejected.
Betrayed and forsaken, he did not strike back but overcame hatred with love.
On the cross he defeated the power of sin and death. By raising him from the dead you show us the power of your love to bring new life to all your people.
Celebrant: On the night before he gave up his life for us, Jesus, at supper with his friends, took bread, gave thanks to you, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘Take this, all of you, and eat it; this is my body which is given for you.”
After supper, Jesus took the cup of wine, said the blessing, gave it to his friends, and said, “Drink this, all of you: this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and eternal covenant, which is shed for you and for many, so that sins may be forgiven. Do this in memory of me.”
Celebrant: Gracious God, with this bread and wine we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus, and we offer ourselves to you in him. Send your Holy Spirit on us and on these gifts, that we may know the presence of Jesus in the breaking of bread, and share in the life of the family of your children.
Celebrant: Father, you call us to be your servants; fill us with the courage and love of Jesus, that all the world may gather in joy at the table of your kingdom. We sing your praise, almighty Father, through Jesus, our Lord, in the power of the Holy Spirit, now and for ever.
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Celebrant: And now, as our Saviour Christ has taught us, we are bold to sing:
THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD
Celebrant: We break this bread to share in the body of Christ.
All: We, being many, are one body for we all share in the one bread.
Celebrant: The gifts of God for the people of God.
All: Thanks be to God.
All baptized Christians, are welcome to take communion in the Anglican Church. Please follow the congregation to the Altar Rail and place one hand on top of the other, palms up, to receive the consecrated bread. For those who wish to receive the consecrated wine, we ask that you assist the communion ministers by holding the bottom rim of the chalice to guide it to your mouth. If you wish only a blessing, you are welcome to come forward as well.
HYMNS DURING COMMUNION
(the congregation is asked to please join in)
MY SONG IS LOVE UNKNOWN
# 184 Tune: Love Unknown
1. My song is love unknown,
my Savior's love to me;
love to the loveless shown,
that they might lovely be.
O who am I,
that for my sake
my Lord should take
frail flesh, and die?
2. He came from his blest throne
salvation to bestow;
but all made strange, and none
the longed-for Christ would know:
But O my friend,
my friend indeed,
who at my need
his life did spend!
3. Sometimes they strew his way,
and his strong praises sing,
resounding all the day
hosannas to their King;
is all their breath,
and for his death
they thirst and cry.
4. Why, what hath my Lord done?
What makes this rage and spite?
He made the lame to run,
he gave the blind their sight.
Yet they at these
and 'gainst him rise.
5. They rise, and needs will have
my dear Lord made away;
a murderer they save,
the Prince of Life they slay.
Yet steadfast he
to suffering goes,
that he his foes
from thence might free.
6. Here might I stay and sing,
no story so divine;
never was love, dear King,
never was grief like thine!
This is my friend,
in whose sweet praise
I all my days
could gladly spend.
LET US BREAK BREAD TOGETHER ON OUR KNEES
1. Let us break bread together on our knees.
Let us break bread together on our knees.
When I fall down on my knees
with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.
2. Let us drink wine together on our knees.
Let us drink wine together on our knees.
When I fall down on my knees
3. Let us praise God together on our knees.
Let us praise God together on our knees.
PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION
Celebrant: Let us pray
All: Almighty God,
may we who have been strengthened by this eucharist
remain in your steadfast love, and show in our lives the saving mystery that we celebrate. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen
PRAYER FOR A NEW PRIEST
All Almighty God, giver of every good gift: thank you for graciously looking upon the people of St. Luke. Thank you that you have chosen Fr. Nico Montalbetti to be a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Celebrant: Glory to God
All: whose power working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church and in Christ Jesus, for ever and ever. Amen.
The Peace of God, which passeth all understanding, keep your 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.
TO THE NAME OF OUR SALVATION
#377 Tune: Oriel
To the Name of our salvation, laud and honor let us pay, which for many a generation hid in God's fore knowledge lay; but with holy exultation we may sing aloud today.
Jesus is the name we treasure
name beyond what words can tell
name of gladness, name of pleasure
ear and heart delighting well;
name of sweetness passing measure,
saving us from sin and hell.
'Tis the Name that whoso preaches speaks like music to the ear; who in prayer this Name beseeches finds its comfort ever near; who its perfect wisdom reaches, heavenly joy possesses here.
Jesus is the Name we exalted; over every other name; in this name, when e’er assaulted, we can put our foes to shame:; strength to them who else had halted, eyes to blind and feet to lame.
Therefore we in love adoring, this most blessed Name revere; holy Jesus, thee imploring so to write it in us here, that hereafter, heavenward soaring, we may sing with angels there.
Leader: Go forth rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
All: Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
