The Mass of Sts Peter and Paul


Into a world of darkness since the fall, new light had dawned, two champions heard the call:

St Peter the rock, and Paul once known as Saul:  Alleluia, alleluia.


First Peter stared in wonder at the sight, Jesus, transfigured, clothed in glorious light,

Then heard God praise his Son from heaven’s height.
Alleluia, alleluia.


Beside a desert road a different sign, Saul saw a blinding light in splendour shine

And Jesus told him, ‘Those you hurt are mine!’  Alleluia, alleluia.


Penitential Act

You were sent to heal the contrite of heart: Kyrie, eleison.
Kyrie, eleison.

You came to call sinners: Christe, eleison.  Christe, eleison.

You are seated at the right hand of the Father  to intercede for us:

Kyrie, eleison. Kyrie, eleison.

Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo. Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will.  We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you,

we give you thanks for your great glory,

Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.


Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,

Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,

you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;

you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;

you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,

with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father.   Amen.


The Liturgy of the Word


Psalm 33  Taste and see, taste and see that the Lord is good

I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise always on my lips,

In the Lord my heart will make its boast.

The humble shall see and be glad.

Taste and see, taste and see that the Lord is good


Glorify the Lord with me, together let us praise His name;

I sought the Lord, he answered me, from all my terrors set me free.

Taste and see, taste and see that the Lord is good


Look towards him and be radiant. Let your faces not be abashed.

This poor man called, the Lord heard him

And rescued him from all his distress.

Taste and see, taste and see that the Lord is good





To welcome the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.  You are Peter and upon this rock I shall build my church.    Alleluia, alleluia.



The Apostles’ Creed


I believe in God, the Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

                       At the words that follow, up to and including the Virgin Mary, we 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 third 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 Preparation of the Gifts


Beside a desert road a different sign, Saul saw a blinding light in splendour shine

And Jesus told him, ‘Those you hurt are mine!’  Alleluia, alleluia.


On each a lifelong mission was conferred, ‘Go tell the nations all that you have heard

Of God made known through Christ, th’incarnate Word.’ Alleluia, alleluia.


Their work accomplished, called to their reward,

One crucified, one martyred by the sword,

Their deaths bore witness to the risen Lord: Alleluia, alleluia.


Schubert Sanctus

Schubert Memorial: We proclaim your death, O Lord, and profess your resurrection until you come again, until you come again.


Old St Andrew Agnus Dei


You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Blessed are you, Simon bar Jonah.
Glory to the Father, glory ton the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.



Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there; God’s own loving presence love does ever share. Love of Christ has made us out of many one, in our midst is dwelling God’s eternal Son.


Give him joyful welcome, love him and revere, cherish one another

with a love sincere. As in Christ we gather discord has no part; ours is but one spirit, but one mind and heart.


Bitterness now ended, let there be accord; always with us dwelling be our God and Lord. May we share the vision with the saints on high of Christ’s matchless glory when we come to die.


Joy of all the blessed, be our heav’ly prize, dwell with us forever, Lord of Paradise! Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there, love’s own loving presence love does ever share.



Blessing:  May the Lord bless us, and keep us from all harm, and may he lead us to eternal life.
