The Liturgy of the Word OLD TESTAMENT READING Reader

Be seated

A reading from the book of Genesis. Jacob left Beersheba and went toward Haran. He came to a certain place and stayed there for the night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, the top of it reaching to heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And the Lord stood beside him and said, "I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring; and your offspring shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your offspring. Know that I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." Then Jacob woke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it!" And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven." Genesis 28:10-17

Reader All

PSALM

The cantor sings the antiphon first; the people repeat it thereafter.

The Lord has set his throne in heaven, and his kingship has dominion over all. Bless the Lord, you angels of his, you mighty ones who do his bidding, and hearken to the voice of his word. Antiphon Bless the Lord, all you his hosts, you ministers of his who do his will. Bless the Lord, all you works of his, in all places of his dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul. Antiphon Psalm 103:19-22

EPISTLE READING Sub-deacon

A reading from the Revelation to John. War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they were defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world - he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, proclaiming, "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah, for the accuser of our comrades has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death. Rejoice then, you heavens and those who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!" Revelation 12:7-12

HOLY GOSPEL

All stand and turn to face the book of the Gospels

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said of him, "Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!" Nathanael asked him, "Where did you get to know me?" Jesus answered, "I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you." Nathanael replied, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" Jesus answered, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these." And he said to him, "Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man." John 1:47-51

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things and judge of all people: We acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness, Which we from time to time most grievously have committed, By thought, word, and deed, Against thy divine majesty.

THE PRAYER OF CONSECRATION Celebrant

Kneel

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.

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.

Formation on Sundays

THE OXFORD MOVEMENT The Oxford Movement of the 1830s demanded a rebirth of the life of the English Church. Its principal leaders argued for the historic and apostolic ministry; they emphasized the sacraments, particularly the Eucharist; they promoted social action and deep pastoral concern; they applied their formidable scholarship to translating the Greek and Latin fathers of the church and republishing the great English theologians and divines of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Theirs was, above all, a call to holiness, a call that changed the course of the Church not for a time only; for theirs was a call that we still are hearing and obeying.

TODAY AT ST.JAMES’:

AT ST. JAMES'

OUTREACH SUNDAY: Witness to the World

Jenny Scott has recently asked to fulfill part of her supervised ministry course requirements at St. James’. Jenny will use this opportunity to gain more exposure around ordained ministry and have some opportunities to practice various aspects of church ministry, including pastoral care, preaching, teach and observing a variety of meetings. Jenny plans on being involved with St. James for approximately 3 hours a week and will complete the rest of her requirements through the ministry she is involved in with Servants. Jenny has been attending St. James’ for over 3 years and has been a member of the servers’ guild for most of this time. She comes from Pennsylvania via New Zealand and India. Jenny moved to Vancouver to study at Regent College where she is studying for a M.Div. Jenny lives in the DTES with the Servants community.

After High Mass we will gather for lunch to acknowledge and celebrate the various forms of “outreach” at St. James’. In our parish, we are a “witness to the world” as we reach beyond ourselves, meeting the needs of others in Christian love. Outreach is manifested in many ways - large and small, individually and by groups, locally to internationally and our goal is to recognize and celebrate them in total. A short presentation during lunch will be followed by a “walk-about” to view display tables represented by various individuals and groups who undertake initiatives at or through St. James’. A light lunch will be provided. Questions regarding this event can be addressed to Doug Ibbott (doug1a@telus.net) or Kimberly McMillan. We look forward to seeing you then! Outreach Committee

St. James’ News & Announcements Meetings have included Mass, prayer, spiritual discussions related to the Rule of St. Benedict, pot-luck supper and fellowship. Over the last year, dwindling attendance led to some cancelled meetings, with the realization that a minimum of 8-10 committed participants are needed to keep monthly group meetings viable. Any parish member interested in re-starting monthly Benedictine group meetings and willing to commit to attend 8 monthly weekday evening meetings is invited to contact Brian Rocksborough-Smith at brianrs47@gmail.com. HELP CREATE THE 2014 ORDO CALENDAR! Please submit your photographs of Life in the Parish taken during any activities or events at St. James’. Submit colour photographs to the office in print or digitally by Sunday, October 6th (via email: office@stjames.bc.ca). Be sure to include your name and contact information, as well as all the details of whom, when and where the photograph was taken. Pictures from the St. James’ picnic would be appreciated. PARISH REVIEW (5) The Parish Review focuses on three questions: What are the essentials at St. James' which we commit to maintain? What are we being called to give up? What are we being called to initiate and/or strengthen? During our annual Parish leaders' Retreat in early September we upheld in prayer and discussed the draft recommendations from the Review - these have been available to all parishioners since late July. The key findings from the Summer retreat are now available in the Narthex, or from the Officeupon request. 26| HIGH MASS

At the Parish Council (Sep. 28) all present had an opportunity to be updated and to offer feedback in response to the draft recommendations. I will continue to interview leaders through October. Two days of prayer and fasting, one in October the other around Advent Sunday, will be offered to the Parish as an opportunity for us to commit the Parish Review to the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit. Any parishioner is welcome to be interviewed - just ask me. Please support our season of Review by: - attending the Parish Council; - praying and reading over the draft recommendations; - participating in the two days of prayer and fasting. Please speak to me, or any one of the Wardens, Trustees, or Clergy of the Parish for more information and help with participating in our season of Review at St. James'. Fr. Mark. TREASURER’$ CORNER (2) September 2013 Another generous parish couple has come forward with a donation – this time to the Sanctuary Guild. Alex and Mary-Ann Currie concluded, when sending their gift, “The liturgical life of the church would be significantly compromised were it not for the devoted ministry of the Sanctuary Guild members.” Many thanks, and bless you both! Angela Van Luven ORDER OF THE DIOCESE OF NEW WESTMINSTER Congratulations to three of our parishioners who will receive this special award later this year. This award is given annually to recipients who have served the parish or the Diocese in an outstanding manner, without


St. James’ & Other News & Announcements remuneration, for at least ten years. This year’s parish nomination for the many years he had served in various capacities is Paul Stanwood. The Bishop has nominated two of our parishioners, Celia Dodds and Judy Graves for their outstanding service in the parish and in the Diocese. Congratulations, Paul, Celia, and Judy! The insignia of the Order will be presented to the recipients by Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, on Sunday November 10, 2013 at 4:00 pm at Christ Church Cathedral.
