  • First Reading

    Thus says the LORD:
    All you who are thirsty,
    come to the water!
    You who have no money,
    come, receive grain and eat;
    come, without paying and without cost,
    drink wine and milk!
    Why spend your money for what is not bread,
    your wages for what fails to satisfy?
    Heed me, and you shall eat well,
    you shall delight in rich fare.
    Come to me heedfully,
    listen, that you may have life.
    I will renew with you the everlasting covenant,
    the benefits assured to David.
    As I made him a witness to the peoples,
    a leader and commander of nations,
    so shall you summon a nation you knew not,

    and nations that knew you not shall run to you,
    because of the LORD, your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, who has glorified you.

    Seek the LORD while he may be found,
    call him while he is near.
    Let the scoundrel forsake his way,
    and the wicked man his thoughts;
    let him turn to the LORD for mercy;
    to our God, who is generous in forgiving.
    For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
    As high as the heavens are above the earth 
    so high are my ways above your ways
    and my thoughts above your thoughts.

    For just as from the heavens
    the rain and snow come down
    and do not return there
    till they have watered the earth,
    making it fertile and fruitful,
    giving seed to the one who sows
    and bread to the one who eats,
    so shall my word be
    that goes forth from my mouth;
    my word shall not return to me void,
    but shall do my will,
    achieving the end for which I sent it.

    IS 55:1-11

  • Second Reading

    Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is begotten by God,
    and everyone who loves the Father
    loves also the one begotten by him.
    In this way we know that we love the children of God
    when we love God and obey his commandments.
    For the love of God is this,
    that we keep his commandments.
    And his commandments are not burdensome,
    for whoever is begotten by God conquers the world.
    And the victory that conquers the world is our faith.
    Who indeed is the victor over the world
    but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

    This is the one who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ,
    not by water alone, but by water and blood.
    The Spirit is the one who testifies,
    and the Spirit is truth.
    So there are three that testify,
    the Spirit, the water, and the blood,
    and the three are of one accord.
    If we accept human testimony,
    the testimony of God is surely greater.
    Now the testimony of God is this,
    that he has testified on behalf of his Son.

    1 JN 5:1-9

  • Gospel

    s is what John the Baptist proclaimed: 
    “One mightier than I is coming after me.
    I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals.
    I have baptized you with water; 
    he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

    It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee 
    and was baptized in the Jordan by John.
    On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open 
    and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him.
    And a voice came from the heavens, 
    “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

    MK 1:7-11


  • Come to the Water

    Come to the Water

    by John Foley, S.J.

    Arranged by Arielle Phan


    1. O let all who thirst,

    Let them come to the water.

    And let all who have nothing,

    Let them come to the Lord:

    Without money, without price,

    Why should you pay the price,

    Except for the Lord?


    2. And let all who seek,

    Let them come to the water.

    And let all who have nothing,

    Let them come to the Lord:

    Without money, without strife.

    Why should you spend your life,

    Except for the Lord?


    3. And let all who toil,

    Let them come to the water.

    And let all who are weary,

    Let them come to the Lord:

    All who labor, without rest.

    How can your soul find rest, Except for the Lord?


    Text: Based on Isaiah 55:1-2; Matthew 11:28-30.

  • Psalm 29

    The Lord Will Bless His People

    by Tom Booth



    The Lord will bless his people.

    The Lord will bless his people with peace.


    1. Give to the Lord, you people of God;

    Give to the Lord glory and praise.

    Give to the Lord all of the glory;

    Worship the Lord in holy attire!


    2. The voice of the Lord is over the waters;

    The voice of the Lord is over the oceans.

    The voice of the Lord is mighty;

    The voice of the Lord is majestic.


    3. The God of glory thunders

    And in his temple all people say, “Glory!”

    The Lord is king above the flood;

    The Lord is king forever and ever.

    Lead me in Your love to those around me.



    I will build my life upon Your love.

    And I will not be shaken.

  • I Send You Out

    I Send You Out

    By John Angotti


    1. I baptize you in the name of the Father.

    I baptize you in the name of the Son.

    I baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

    Go out and spread Good News!



    I send you out on a mission of love.

    I send you out on a mission of love.

    I send you out on a mission of love,

    And know that I am with you always

    Until the end of the world.


    2. Well, it’s time for us to become people with spirit.

    It’s time for us to become people of love.

    It’s time for us to know that Jesus Christ is risen,

    Forgives our sins, and brings us new life!

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

Good Works Never Cease

For several months now we've been Safer@Home 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!
