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,
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.


May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, 
and bring us to everlasting life.

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.

The 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, 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. Amen


The Prayer of the Faithful

R: Lord hear our prayer


III. The Liturgy of the Eucharist

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,
for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you:
fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.
R: Blessed be God for ever.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,
for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you:
fruit of the vine and work of human hands, it will become our spiritual drink.
R: Blessed be God for ever.

With humble spirit and contrite heart may we be accepted by you,
O Lord, and may our sacrifice in your sight this day be pleasing to you, Lord God.
Wash me, O Lord, from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.


Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours
may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father.
R: 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.

Eucharistic Prayer II

You are indeed Holy, O Lord, the fount of all holiness.
Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray,
by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall,
so that they may become for us 
the Body and † Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.


At the time he was betrayed and entered
willingly into his Passion,
He took bread and, giving thanks,
broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying:




In a similar way, when supper was ended,
he took the chalice and, once more giving thanks,
he gave it to his disciples, saying:




The mystery of faith.
R: We proclaim your Death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection until you come again.


Therefore, as we celebrate the memorial of his Death and Resurrection,
we offer you, Lord, the Bread of life and the Chalice of salvation,

giving thanks that you have held us worthy
to be in your presence and minister to you.

Humbly we pray that, partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ,
we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit.


Remember, Lord, your Church, spread throughout the world, 
and bring her to the fullness of charity,
together with N. our Pope and N. our Bishop and all the clergy.


Remember also our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep
in the hope of the resurrection, and all who have died in your mercy: 
welcome them into the light of your face.

Have mercy on us all, we pray, that with the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God, with blessed Joseph, her Spouse
with the blessed Apostles, and all the Saints
who have pleased you throughout the ages,
we may merit to be coheirs to eternal life,
and may praise and glorify you through your Son, Jesus Christ.


Through him, and with him, and in him,
O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever.

R: Amen.

IV. Communion Rites


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching,
we dare to say:

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.


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 Savior, Jesus Christ.
R: For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours 
now and for ever.


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.     
R: Amen.

(Sign of Peace)

The peace of the Lord be with you always.
R: And with your spirit.

Let us offer each other the sign of peace.


May this mingling of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ
bring eternal life to us who receive it.

R: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, 
have mercy on us.

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

(Kneel down)


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.

R: Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof,
but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.


(NB Receiving the Holy Communion is reserved only for the Catholic)


V. Closing Rites


(Prayer after Communion & Blessing)

Let us pray....

The Lord be with you.   
R: And with your spirit.


May almighty God bless all of you, who are gathered here,
the Father, and the Son, † and the Holy Spirit.   
R. Amen.
