A Reflection Her Virgin eyes saw God incarnate born, when she to Bethlem came that happy morn: how high her raptures then began to swell, none but her own omniscient Son can tell. As Eve, when she her fontal sin reviewed, wept for herself and all she should include, blest Mary, with man's Saviour in embrace, joyed for herself and for all human race. All saints are by her Son's dear influence blest; she kept the very fountain at her breast: the Son adored and nursed by the sweet Maid a thousand fold of love for love repaid. Heaven with transcendent joys her entrance graced, near to his throne her Son his Mother placed; and here below, now she's of heaven possest, all generations are to call her blest. Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath & Wells, Non-Juror, 1685-1691




Entrance Rite PRELUDE

At the entrance of the clergy and servers all stand.


INTROIT Let us all rejoice in the Lord our God, as we celebrate a feast day in honour of the Virgin Mary: because of whose solemnity the angels are jubilant and sing praises to the Son of God. Gaudeamus (Mode I)


The Lord be with you. And with thy Spirit.

During the solemn procession the following hymn will be sung. A station will be made at the Lady Altar, during which the versicle and response on page 8 will be sung. HYMN 188 Green Hymn Book (New English Hymnal) — Ye Who Own the Faith of Jesus Ye who own the faith of Jesus sing the wonders that were done, when the love of God the Father o’er our sin the victory won, when he made the Virgin Mary mother of his only Son. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. 6 | HIGH MASS

Blessèd were the chosen people out of whom the Lord did come, blessèd was the land of promise fashioned for his earthly home; but more blessed far the mother, she who bare him in her womb. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. Wherefore let all faithful people tell the honour of her name, let the Church, in her foreshadowed, part in her thanksgiving claim; what Christ's mother sang in gladness let Christ's people sing the same. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. Let us weave our supplications, she with us and we with her, for the advancement of the faithful, for each faithful worshipper, for the doubting, for the sinful, for each heedless wanderer. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. May the Mother's intercessions on our homes a blessing win, that the children all be prospered, strong and fair and pure within, following our Lord's own footsteps, firm in faith and free from sin. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. For the sick and for the agèd, for our dear ones far away, for the hearts that mourn in secret, all who need our prayers today, for the faithful gone before us, may the holy Virgin pray. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace. HIGH MASS | 7

Praise, O Mary, praise the Father, praise thy Saviour and thy Son, praise the everlasting Spirit, who hath made thee ark and throne; o'er all creatures high exalted, lowly praise the Three in One. Hail Mary, hail Mary, hail Mary, full of grace.


Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: Blessed art thou among women. Let us pray. Almighty Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, thou hast revealed the beauty of thy power by exalting the lowly virgin of Nazareth and making her the mother of our Saviour. May the prayers of this woman clothed with the sun bring Jesus to the waiting world and fill the void of incompletion with the presence of her child, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

KYRIE ELEISON Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.

Lord, have mercy upon us. Christ, have mercy upon us. Lord, have mercy upon us. Missa l’hora passa — Ludovico da Viadana





The Lord be with you. And with thy spirit.


Let us pray. O God, thou hast taken to thyself the blessed Virgin Mary, mother of thine incarnate Son. May we who have been redeemed by his blood, share with her the glory of thine eternal kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.



The Liturgy of the Word OLD TESTAMENT READING Reader

Be seated

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah Again the Lord spoke to Ahaz, saying, Ask a sign of the Lord your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, and I will not put the Lord to the test. Then Isaiah said: "Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary mortals, that you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. He shall eat curds and honey by the time he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good." Isaiah 7:10-15

Reader All

The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.


A cantor sings the antiphon first ; all repeat it thereafter.

The Ark! We heard it was in Ephratah; we found it in the fields of Jearim. Let us go to God’s dwelling place; let us fall upon our knees before his footstool. Antiphon Arise, O Lord, into your resting-place, you and the ark of your strength. Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; let your faithful people sing with joy. For your servant David’s sake, do not turn away the face of your anointed. Antiphon HIGH MASS | 11

If your children keep my covenant and my testimonies that I shall teach them, their children will sit upon your throne for evermore. For the Lord has chosen Zion, he has desired her for his habitation. Antiphon Psalm 132:6-10, 13-14


A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Galatians. When the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children. And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!" So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God. Galatians 4:4-7

Sub-deacon All

The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.


A cantor begins the alleluia; all repeat it thereafter.


Alleluia. Mary is taken up into heaven. The company of angels is joyful. Alleluia. Mary is taken up into the heavenly chamber, in which the King of kings sits upon his starry throne. Alleluia. Assumpta est Maria (Mode V)



All stand and turn to face the book of the Gospels

Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever." Luke 1:46-55


Be Seated Father Kevin Hunt (At the conclusion of the sermon, silence is kept)






In peace let us pray to the Lord.


After each petition this response is said: Lord, have mercy on those who fear you. Holy is your name.


The celebrant concludes the prayer with a Collect.




The ministers and people may greet one another in the name of the Lord in the customary way. (You may choose not to shake hands at the Peace. A simple exchange of “Peace be with you” with eye contact and a nod, or a bow, is a good substitute.)


The Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist OFFERTORY & PREPARATION OF THE GIFTS

Be seated

Mary is taken up into heaven. The angels rejoice and with one voice they bless the Lord, alleluia. Assumpta est Maria (Mode VIII)


Stand The People sing the hymn while the People’s gifts of bread, wine and money are brought forward. 185 Green Hymn Book (New English Hymnal) —Sing We of the Blessed Mother Sing we of the blessèd Mother Who received the angel’s word, And obedient to his summons Bore in love the infant Lord; Sing we of the joys of Mary At whose breast that child was fed Who is Son of God eternal And the everlasting Bread. Sing we, too, of Mary’s sorrows, Of the sword that pierced her through, When beneath the cross of Jesus She his weight of suffering knew, Looked upon her Son and Saviour Reigning high on Calvary's tree, Saw the price of man's redemption Paid to set the sinner free.


Sing again the joys of Mary When she saw the risen Lord, And in prayer with Christ’s apostles, Waited on his promised word; From on high the blazing glory Of the Spirit’s presence came, Heavenly breath of God’s own being, Manifest through wind and flame. Sing the chiefest joy of Mary When on earth her work was done, And the Lord of all creation Brought her to his heavenly home; Virgin Mother, Mary blessèd, Raised on high and crowned with grace, May your Son, the world’s redeemer, Grant us all to see his face.




It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God, creator and preserver of all things. And that in the Assumption of blessed Mary ever Virgin, we should praise, bless, and tell forth thy wonders. In that, by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost, she conceived thy only begotten Son: even Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore with angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious name; evermore praising thee and singing:

SANCTUS & BENEDICTUS Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt coeli et terra Gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis. + Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.

Stand Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts, heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Glory be to thee, O Lord most high. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest. Missa l’hora passa — Ludovico da Viadana




All glory be to thee, O Lord our God, who didst make us in thine own image; and, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to take our nature upon him, and to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption. He made there a full and perfect sacrifice for the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again; who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took bread; and, when he had given thanks to thee, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take, eat, this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” + Likewise, after supper, he took the cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins: Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.” + Wherefore, O Lord and heavenly Father, we thy people do celebrate and make, with these thy holy gifts which we now offer unto thee, the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; and looking for his coming again with power and great glory.


Alll 20 | HIGH MASS

And we most humbly beseech thee, O merciful Father, to hear us, and, with thy Word and Holy Spirit, to bless and sanctify these gifts of bread and wine, that they may be unto us the body and blood of thy dearly-beloved Son Jesus Christ. We praise thee, we bless thee, we thank thee and we pray to thee, Lord our God. And we earnestly desire thy fatherly goodness to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, whereby we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies. Grant, we beseech thee, that all who partake of this holy communion may worthily receive the most precious body and blood of thy Son Jesus Christ, and be filled with thy grace + and heavenly benediction; and also that we and all thy whole Church may be made one body with him, that he may dwell in us, and we in him; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord; By whom, and with whom, and in whom, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honour and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end. Amen.





AGNUS DEI Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: miserere nobis. Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: miserere nobis Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world : have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world: have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world: grant us thy peace. Missa l’hora passa — Ludovico da Viadana


+Behold the Lamb of God, behold him that taketh away the sins of the world. O Lord I am not worthy that thou shouldst come under my roof, but speak the word only and my soul shall be healed.

MOTET Sicut cedrus exaltata sum in Libano, et sicut cypressus in monte Sion, quasi myrrha electa dedi suavitatem odoris. Et sicut cinnamomum et balsamum aromatizans.

I was exalted like a cedar in Lebanon and like a cypress on Mount Sion: like the best myrrh, I gave a sweet odour. And like cinnamon and aromatic balm, I gave a sweet odour. Sicut cedrus exaltata sum — Felice Anerio



Sit or kneel 4 Green Hymn Book (New English Hymnal) — Gabriel’s Message Does Away Gabriel's message does away Satan's curse and Satan's sway, out of darkness brings our Day:

Refrain: so, behold, all the gates of heaven unfold. He that comes despised shall reign; he that cannot die, be slain; death by death its death shall gain: Refrain Weakness shall the strong confound; by the hands, in grave-clothes wound, Adam's chains shall be unbound. Refrain By the sword that was his own, by that sword, and that alone, shall Goliath be o'erthrown: Refrain Art by art shall be assailed; to the cross shall Life be nailed; from the grave shall hope be hailed: Refrain





The Lord be with you. And with thy spirit. Let us pray. God of grace, today we raise our voices to magnify thy holy name, and, in our own generation, to call her blessed who became the mother of our Saviour Jesus Christ. May we who have shared this holy food continue, with her, in thy glorious kingdom, founded and established in Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.



Kneel The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord: And the blessing of God Almighty, the +Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be amongst you and remain with you always. Amen. Notices and announcements may be given.

HYMN 362 Blue Hymn Book (Common Praise) — Tell Out, My Soul Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord! Unnumbered blessings give my spirit voice; tender to me the promise of his word; in God my Saviour shall my heart rejoice. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his name! Make known his might, the deeds his arm has done; his mercy sure, from age to age the same; his holy name—the Lord, the mighty one. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might! Powers and dominions lay their glory by; proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight, the hungry fed, the humble lifted high. Tell out, my soul, the glories of his word! Firm is his promise, and his mercy sure. Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord to children's children and for evermore!

The Thurible NOTES FROM THE CLERGY Ninth Anglican Indigenous Sacred Circle, 6 – 11 August 2018 At the opening Eucharist, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, recalled a significant anniversary. On that very day 25 years earlier, Vi Smith, “a great Indigenous woman who was a faithful follower of Jesus”, stood up at the closing Eucharist of the National Native Convocation and accepted the apology of then-Primate Michael Peers for the church’s role in administering the residential school system. Invoking the gospel and his predecessor’s words from the apology, “more than I can say”, Archbishop Hiltz suggested a new phrase underscoring the continuing relevance of Archbishop Peers’ apology in 2018: “more than ever”. “More than ever,” the Primate said, “let us persevere in showing that the church’s apology remains a living text. […] Let us be unwavering in our resolve to spot and stomp racism in the church, and in this country […] to strive for right relationships among the

children of God from all four directions […] More than ever, let us remain committed to paths of healing and reconciliation upon which the apology set our feet.” The Primate urged Anglicans to be determined in their efforts to educate the church about the lingering impact of the Doctrine of Discovery, to honour the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and to make good on our church’s public pledge to uphold the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. He gave thanks and prayed for continued support to the Anglican Healing Fund. He asked members of the church to turn their hearts and minds to the plight of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and to rid Canada of the crime of human trafficking. Yet even as the Primate drew attention to these issues, he grounded them and the larger journey towards Indigenous selfdetermination in that day’s Bible readings, making clear their inseparability from the life and teachings of Jesus. “More than ever, may we be as those of whom

RECTORY RENOVATION: UPDATE The work on the Rectory commenced in June. The interior demolition is now complete and the rebuilding of the interior space has begun. The Project Manager, Nancy Holme, along with Scott Construction is pleased with the work to date. They have identified some minor anomalies but quickly found solutions which will better suit the use of the kitchen in particular. The Renovation Committee endorsed these minor changes. With the removal of the walls of the original cloakroom, the foyer space is much larger and brighter and will create a welcoming entrance for the community. To date there has been no interruption to church activities. We thank Nancy Holme and Scott Construction for their efficient and careful work.
