Opening Hymn:  247  Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

Collect    Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule

Reading:  Ephesians 1:15-23   read by Serge Belet

Psalm 47

Gospel:  Luke 24:44-53
Jesus 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. And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.’ Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands, he blessed them. While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy; and they were continually in the temple blessing God.’

Canada Helps

  • Offertory: Generous financial support is our expression of gratitude which along with our time and talents enables us to provide worship at St. Bart’s and support God’s work in service in our community and beyond.
    We thank our contributors on the PAR program for their monthly automated donations. If you would like to enroll on our monthly withdrawal plan, PAR, you may follow this link
    And thank you for those who have been mailing in their contributions or dropping them through the church mail slot. At this difficult time “Canada Helps” is another way to support us through a credit card payment. (They charge, we think, a reasonable, 3.75% to us)
