Scripture

  • First Reading

    Thus says the Lord GOD:
    I, too, will take from the crest of the cedar,
        from its topmost branches tear off a tender shoot,
    and plant it on a high and lofty mountain;
        on the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it.
    It shall put forth branches and bear fruit,
        and become a majestic cedar.
    Birds of every kind shall dwell beneath it,
        every winged thing in the shade of its boughs.
    And all the trees of the field shall know
        that I, the LORD,
    bring low the high tree,
        lift high the lowly tree,
    wither up the green tree,
        and make the withered tree bloom.
    As I, the LORD, have spoken, so will I do.

    Ez 17:22-24

  • Second Reading

    Brothers and sisters:
    We are always courageous,
    although we know that while we are at home in the body
    we are away from the Lord,
    for we walk by faith, not by sight.
    Yet we are courageous,
    and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord.
    Therefore, we aspire to please him, 
    whether we are at home or away.
    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
    so that each may receive recompense,
    according to what he did in the body, whether good or evil.

    2 Cor 5:6-10

  • Gospel

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    “This is how it is with the kingdom of God;
    it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
    and would sleep and rise night and day
    and through it all the seed would sprout and grow,
    he knows not how.
    Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
    first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
    And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
    for the harvest has come.”

    He said,
    “To what shall we compare the kingdom of God,
    or what parable can we use for it?
    It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
    is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
    But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
    and puts forth large branches,
    so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
    With many such parables
    he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
    Without parables he did not speak to them,
    but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.

    Mk 4:26-34

Lyrics

  • Seed, Scattered and Sown

    Seed, Scattered and Sown

    By Dan Feiten

     

    Refrain

    Seed, scattered and sown, wheat, gathered and grown,

    bread, broken and shared as one, the Living Bread of God.

    Vine, fruit of the land, wine, work of our hands,

    one cup that is shared by all; the Living Cup, the Living Bread of God.

     

    1. Is not the bread we break a sharing in our Lord?

    Is not the cup we bless the blood of Christ outpoured?

     

    2. The seed which falls on rock will wither and will die.

    The seed within good ground will flower and have life.

     

    3. As wheat upon the hills was gathered and was grown,

    So may the church of God be gathered into one.

     

    Text: Didache 9 , 1 Corinthians 10:16-17, Mark 4:3-6; Dan Feiten, � 1987, Ekklesia Music, Inc.

  • Psalm 92

    Lord, It Is Good

    by Steve Angrisano

    Refrain

    Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.

     

    1. It is good to give thanks to the LORD,

        to sing praise to your name, Most High,

    To proclaim your kindness at dawn

        and your faithfulness throughout the night.

     

    2. The just one shall flourish like the palm tree,

        like a cedar of Lebanon shall he grow.

    They that are planted in the house of the LORD

        shall flourish in the courts of our God.

     

    3. They shall bear fruit even in old age;

        vigorous and sturdy shall they be,

    Declaring how just is the LORD,

        my rock, in whom there is no wrong.

     

  • Gospel Acclamation

    Mass of Endless Mercy

    by Steve Angrisano

    Verse

    All who come to him will live forever.

  • Mystery of Faith

    Mass of Colour

    When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,

  • Lamb of God

    Mass of Colour

    By Jeffrey Bonilla & David Lockwood

     

    Lamb of God

    You take away the sins,

    The sins of the world.

    Have mercy, mercy on us.

     

    Lamb of God

    You take away the sins,

  • We Walk by Faith

    We Walk by Faith

    By Marty Haugen

    Arranged by David Lockwood

     

    1. We walk by faith, and not by sight:

    No gracious words we hear

    Of him who spoke as none e'er spoke,

    But we believe him near.

     

    2. We may not touch his hands and side,

    Nor follow where he trod;

    Yet in his promise we rejoice,

    And cry 'My Lord and God!'

     

    3. Help then, O Lord, our unbelief,

    And may our faith abound;

    To call on you when you are near,

    And seek where you are found:

     

    4. That when our life of faith is done

    In realms of clearer light

    We may behold you as you are

    In full and endless sight.

     

    Text: Henry Alford, 1810-1871, alt.

  • Gift of Finest Wheat

    Gift of Finest Wheat

    By Omer Westendorf

     

    Refrain

    You satisfy the hungry heart

    With gift of finest wheat;

    Come give to us, O saving Lord,

    The bread of life to eat.

     

    1. As when the shepherd calls his sheep,

    They know and heed his voice;

    So when you call your fam'ly,

    Lord, We follow and rejoice.

     

    2. With joyful lips we sing to you

    Our praise and gratitude,

    That you should count us worthy, Lord,

    To share this heav'nly food.

     

    Text: Omer Westendorf, 1916-1998, � 1977, Archdiocese of Philadelphia

     

  • Tend the Ground

    Tend the Ground

    By Curtis Stephan

     

    Refrain

    We till the earth, we tend the ground,

    sowing hope and peace where none is found.

    In selfless love God’s life abounds.

    We till the earth, we tend the ground.

     

    1. Where hardened hearts have turned to greed,

    trampling upon the fledgling seed,

    help us to tend to others’ needs,

    open our eyes, open our eyes.

     

    2. On rocky paths and trodden roads,

    Lord, clear the ground where thorns have grown.

    Give us the grace to follow you.

    Make straight the way, make straight the way.

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Amen.

Good Works Never Cease

For several months now we've been [email protected] and gathered online to worship and pray together. Although our state and communities have begun to take small steps towards re-opening, we will continue to re-imagine and re-establish parish life—wherever we are. Your table is our table.

 

Together, we have:

  • gathered together for Mass online, still inviting lectors, musicians, and ministers to offer their gifts
  • brought you our Parish Mission Retreat and prayerful devotions online
  • established a response ministry to serve and assist those in our community with meal and grocery delivery
  • thanked frontline medical workers
  • ensured that the lights stay on and that internet is accessible for those who are struggling
  • hand-written notes, made hundreds of phone calls, and kept our ministries connected and engaged.

You make all of this good work possible. Half of our offertory gifts are usually collected in church through the Sunday basket. While we aren't able to pass the basket right now, we hope you will continue your offertory gifts through either a one-time gift -or- recurring giving. You may also click the 'Donate' button in the Livestream player. Your sustained gifts bring stability and peace of mind—as well as hope and comfort for those who need it most. Thank you!
