The Lord be with you.

Let us pray.
O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Peter addressed the people, “You Israelites, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we had made him walk? The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our ancestors has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and rejected in the presence of Pilate, though he had decided to release him. But you rejected the Holy and Righteous One and asked to have a murderer given to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised
from the dead. To this we are witnesses. And by faith in his name, his name itself has made this man strong, whom you see and know; and the faith that is through Jesus has given him this perfect health in the presence of all of you. “And now, friends, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. In this way God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, that his Messiah would suffer. Repent therefore, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out.”
The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Answer me when I call, O God, defender of /my cause; * you set me free when I am hard-pressed; have mercy on me /and hear my prayer. “You mortals, how long will you dishonor my /glory; * how long will you worship dumb idols and run /after false gods?” Know that the LORD does wonders for the /faithful; * when I call upon the LORD, /he will hear me. Tremble, then, and do not /sin; * speak to your heart in silence /upon your bed. Offer the appointed /sacrifices * and put your /trust in the LORD.
Many are saying, “Oh, that we might see /better times!” * Lift up the light of your countenance up/on us, O LORD. You have put gladness in my /heart, * more than when grain and wine /and oil increase. I lie down in peace; at once I/ fall asleep; * for only you, LORD, make me /dwell in safety.
1 John 3:1-7
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
purify themselves, just as he is pure. Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him sins; no one who sins has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.
Love’s redeeming work is done
The Holy Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, acording to Luke.
Glory to you Lord Christ
Jesus himself stood among the disciples and said to them, “Peace be with you.” They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself. Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave him
a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate in their presence. Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Nicene Creed • BCP 358
• all stand
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again 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. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church; That we all may be one.
We pray for the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea and the people and clergy of Trinity Church, Owensboro. Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you; That your Name may be glorified by all people. We pray for Michael, our Presiding Bishop, Terry, our bishop, and for all bishops, priests, and deacons. That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.
We pray for President Trump, Governor Bevin, Governor Holcomb and the mayors and councils of our several cities and for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world. That there may be justice and peace on the earth. Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake; That our works may find favor in your sight.
Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble; That they may be delivered from their distress.
Give to the departed eternal rest; Let light perpetual shine upon them.
We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy; May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

I come with joy to meet my Lord
The Great Thanksgiving Eucharistic Prayer A â€˘ BCP 361 celebrant celebrant
It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
But chiefly are we bound to praise you for the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; for he is the true Paschal Lamb, who was sacrificed for us, and has taken away the sin of the world. By his death he has destroyed death, and by his rising to life again he has won for us everlasting life. Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:
Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all. He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.
On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.” After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.” Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:
Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.
We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.
Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.
All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever.
The Great Amen
The Lord’s Prayer • BCP 364 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. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart, through Christ our Lord. Amen

Justice Ministry Through CLOUT
The culmination of CLOUT’s year is the Nehemiah Action Assembly, which will be happening on April 17. All the meetings, the research, the explorations, the discussions which take place through the year come together at the Action, when CLOUT Network members and their guests ask community officials to take Action to address issues that negatively impact citizens—the people in our congregations, in our neighborhoods, in our city. This year we will be asking for actions related to: 1) decriminalizing the mentally ill and drug addicted; 2) funding the Affordable Housing Trust Fund; and 3) expanding Restorative Practices to address disciplinary problems in JCPS schools. As Nehemiah (chapter 5:1-13) gathered a great assembly to effectively exercise the power of the people to solve a serious community problem, CLOUT will be mustering our people-power to press for action on these local issues which concern us all. The Cathedral’s Network members and guests will be helping to swell the numbers and strengthen the power on April 17 at Memorial Auditorium, 6:00pm. Will you join us? If you haven’t been contacted and would like to be part of the Action, please talk to one of the Team members: Page Curry, Eva Markham, Jim Monin, or Mildred Franks.

Ronald McDonald House “Adopt A Meal”
As Christ Church Cathedral continues to explore opportunities to serve our neighbors, The Ronald McDonald House offers a unique relationship. Our discussions with staff at The Ronald McDonald House revealed their “Adopt A Meal” program in which organizations or individual groups of 8 to 10 individuals select a weekday evening or weekend brunch to prepare and serve a meal. The group determines the meal menu, purchases all food stuffs, prepares the meal in their kitchen, sets it up as a buffet, and cleans up. The staff recommends the meal be prepared for 65 to 80 individuals. No dishes or baked goods can be prepared at home, but may be purchased pre-cooked from a commercial vendor and brought into the R. McD. House in their original commercial containers. Participation in this endeavor can be either by active participation in cooking/serving the meal and/or by contributing monies to cover expenses for the meal. Since all expenses are not part of the CCC budget, donations can be made to CCC with notation on the check “Ronald McDonald House Meal”. If you are interested in being involved in meal preparation/serving, please contact either Rev. Eva Markham (email@example.com) or John Kiesel (firstname.lastname@example.org) . We hope to get this activity underway in the near future.
Central Louisville Community Ministries
Central Louisville Community Ministries (CLCM), formerly Help Ministries of Central Louisville, is one of the oldest community ministries in the city of Louisville.

Coffee Hour Hosts Invitation
We all enjoy coffee hour after the morning service on Sundays. Currently we have 31 gracious generous hosts who serve about 3 coffee hours during the year. We always welcome new hosts and I will be updating our list and schedule to begin in January. We try to keep the offerings simple so that it is not too much of a burden on a host. There is help (usually our wonderful Frazier Marsh) cleaning up and coffee is already taken care of. If you feel called to host coffee hour, please contact Randy Peters.
Have you ever gone to a church for the first time and no one spoke to you as you entered? That is a Greeter’s role of outreach--to make a person feel welcome as they enter a church for the first time. It requires only about 15-20 minutes each time you greet and it is beneficial to the greeter as much as the one greeted. If you would like to help with this important service to the church, please contact the Dean or Bobbie Fritton.

Why do we pray, study, work, listen and build?
Benedict, the father of Benedictine spirituality, suggested that our life is best balanced between prayer, study, and work. We have taken that challenge as the basis of our common life together at Christ Church Cathedral: We pray (worship and the arts). We study (spiritual formation). We work (service to others). In addition, we know that we are sustained by our life together, and that works best when we listen to one another. We also aim to build and maintain a structure that will support all of our ministry efforts. And so: We listen (cathedral life and fellowship), We build (administration). In Cathedral Matters, you will find information about ministry opportunities at the Cathedral which fit into all five of these areas. Under each of the five main categories you will see what is new to the listing for this week. You will notice that some paragraphs repeat weekly, so that our guests won’t miss any news. You are urged to take your Cathedral Matters home with you so that you will have it for ready reference. Now, read about our ministry, think about how you would like to be involved...and jump right in!

End-of-Life Workshops The Endowment Corporation will present three workshops that will guide us in thinking through issues that face us all at the end-of-life. They will give us a chance to consider decisions that sometimes catch up with us before we’re ready. These discussions are helpful for a person of any age: April 8, How does being a Christian—a person of Easter—change how I can view the end of my life, and how can that be experienced in my funeral? • Taking a closer look at the funeral service • Suggesting the place for the service and the priest who will officiate and/or preach • Choosing scriptures and hymns that reflect my beliefs
Presenter: The Rev’d Richard Humke, member of the Endowment Board April 15, What are my medical options for end of life, and what might I do now to have them in place? • Preparing advance directives • Considering hospice care and treatment options • Talking about family involvement
Presenter: Dr. Lori Earnshaw, Hosparus Health Physician April 22, What are the rights of an elder and how will I protect them? • Writing a will • Arranging for powers of attorney • Leaving a legacy
Presenter: John Dotson, Elder Law Each workshop will be presented in Bishops’ Hall following 10:30 worship.
I am Resurrection and I am Life, says the Lord. Whoever has faith in me shall have life, even though he die. John 11.25 Anthem in the Burial Office, Rite II, Book of Common Prayer
