Preparation  of Gifts: Canticle from the Letter to the Ephesians

We bless the God and Father of Jesus for he has blessed us freely in Christ.
He chose to lavish spiritual blessings from highest heaven. All this through Christ.

Long before founding all of creation, God made his plan and chose us in Christ,
that we be holy, blameless and loving, children adopted. All this through Christ.

God’s will is always that we might love him, source of all graces, witnessed in Christ;
love manifested, gift of redemption, pardon for sinners.  All this through Christ.

Jubilee Sanctus and  Memorial:   When we eat this bread . . .

Dunkeld  Lamb of God . . . . .

The Invitation:  Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world: blessed are those called to the Banquet of the Lamb.

Processional hymn: A new commandment I give unto you: that you love one another
as I have loved you, that you love one another, as I have loved you.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples –if you have love one for another.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples – if you have love one for another.

A new commandment I give unto you: that you love one another
As I have loved you, that you love one another, as I have loved you.

Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.

 Starter Packs Collection:  Many thanks to those who donated to our first collection.  There was an added bit of excitement to this as the collection was being filmed for Channel 4. 
It turned out to be a part of the “Secret Millionaire” series and Starter Packs have been given a donation towards their work.  See it on TV in September! 
Meanwhile, they are still looking for items for their clients.  They supplied over 100 new tenants in March alone!  Bedding, curtains, crockery etc.  plus little extras like photo frames and toiletries.  Keep an eye open for the two-for-one offers and stock the extra one for our next collection – 20-22 June.
