Sing a new song to the Lord! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Truth and beauty surround him, he lives in holiness and glory. (Psalm 96:1,6)
My dear friends in Christ, we come together to offer this Holy Sacrifice to the God that calls us to discipleship.
We pray with special intention for the life work and witness of the parish and that we may be given the grace to follow him and be fishers of souls.
The grace of God has dawned upon the world
through our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who sacrificed himself for us to purify a people as his own.
Let us therefore confess our sins.
Let us pray
All-powerful and ever-living God,
direct your love that is within us,
that our efforts in the name of your Son
may bring mankind to unity and peace.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
The Lord is my light and my help
Christ was revealed in flesh, proclaimed among the nations
and believed in throughout the world.
Our Saviour Christ is the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there shall be no end.
The peace of the Lord be always with you
and also with you
Prayer after Communion
God, all-powerful Father,
may the new life you give us increase our love
and keep us in the joy of your kingdom.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
The Lord be with you
And also with you
Christ the Son of God perfect in you the image of his glory
and gladden your hearts with the good news of his kingdom;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the +Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be among you and remain with you always.
The mass is ended. Go in the peace of Christ.
Thanks be to God
