All say:  I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,
(striking their breast)
through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God

The Niceno-Constantinopolitan (“Nicene”) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
 (all bow)
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and
I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ,
his only Son, our Lord,
(all bow)
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the ghird day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God
the Father almighty;
from there he will come 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 life everlasting.

The Liturgy of the Eucharist
The Priest offers prayers of blessing over the gifts:

P.  Blessed be God for ever
C.  Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours
may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father.
P.  May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name,
for our good and the good of all his holy Church.

C.  The Lord be with you.
P.  And with your spirit.
C.   Lift up your hearts.
P.   We lift them up to the Lord.
C.   Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
P.   It is right and just.

After the Preface

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

After the words of Consecration:

C.  The mystery of faith.
1.  We proclaim your Death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection
until you come again.
2.  When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your Death, O Lord, until you come again.
3.  Save us, Saviour of the world,
for by your Cross and Resurrection
you have set us free.

The Communion Rite

C.  At the Saviour’s command
and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
P.  Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
C.  Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days,
that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress,
as we await the blessed hope
and the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
P.  For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
C.  Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles:
Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, look not on our sins,
but on the faith of your Church,
and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will.
Who live and reign for ever and ever.
P.  Amen.
C.  The peace of the Lord be with you always.
P.  And with your spirit.
C.  Let us offer each other the sign of peace.

Breaking of the Bread

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.


C.  Behold the Lamb of God,
behold him who takes away the sins of the world.
Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.

that you should enter under my roof,
but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
