Entrance Hymn:  God of Our Fathers


  • God of our fathers, whose almighty hand


Leads forth in beauty all the starry band

Of shining worlds in splendor through the skies,

Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.



  • Your love divine has led us in the past,


In this free land by you our lot is cast;

Be our strong ruler, guardian, guide and stay,

Your Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.



  • From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,


Your mighty arm our ever sure defense;

Your true religion in our hearts increase,

Your bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.


Reading 1

While Apollos was in Corinth,

Paul traveled through the interior of the country

and down to Ephesus where he found some disciples.

He said to them,

“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?”

They answered him,

“We have never even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

He said, “How were you baptized?”

They replied, “With the baptism of John.”

Paul then said, “John baptized with a baptism of repentance,

telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him,

that is, in Jesus.”

When they heard this,

they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

And when Paul laid his hands on them,

the Holy Spirit came upon them,

and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

Altogether there were about twelve men.

He entered the synagogue, and for three months debated boldly

with persuasive arguments about the Kingdom of God.


Psalm: 96

Refrain: Proclaim to all the nations the marvelous deeds of the Lord.

  Cuenten a todos los pueblos las maravillas del Señor.


Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!



The disciples said to Jesus,

“Now you are talking plainly, and not in any figure of speech.

Now we realize that you know everything

and that you do not need to have anyone question you.

Because of this we believe that you came from God.”

Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now?

Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived

when each of you will be scattered to his own home

and you will leave me alone.

But I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

I have told you this so that you might have peace in me.

In the world you will have trouble,

but take courage, I have conquered the world.”


Offertory: Seek Ye First

Seek ye first the kingdom of God

And his righteousness

And all these things shall be added unto you

Busquen primero el reino del Dios

y su perfecta justicia

y los demás añadido será

Ask and it shall be given unto you,

Seek and ye shall find,

Knock and the door shall be opened unto you

Busquen y hallarán.

Man shall not live by bread alone

But by every word

That proceeds from the mouth of God

Allelu, alleluia

Communion Hymn: One Bread, One Body


One bread, one body

One Lord of all

One cup of blessing which we bless

And we, though many

Throughout the earth

We are one body in this one Lord


  1. Gentile or Jew

Servant or free

Woman or man, no more


  1. Many the gifts

Many the works

One in the Lord of all


  1. Grain for the fields

Scattered and grown

Gathered to one, for all


Closing Hymn:  America the Beautiful

  1. O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!

America! America! God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!


     2.) O beautiful for pilgrim feet Whose stern impassioned stress,

  A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness! 

America! America! God mend thine every flaw, 

Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law! 


      3.) O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife, 

Who more than self their country loved And mercy more than life! 

America! America! May God thy gold refine 

Till all success be nobleness, And every gain divine!
