OPENING HYMN     All My Hope on God is Founded                   Hymnal 1982 #665


1. All my hope on God is founded; he doth still my trust renew,

me through change and chance he guideth, only good and only true.

God unknown, he alone, calls my heart to be his own.


2. Mortal pride and earthly glory, sword and crown betray our trust;

though with care and toil we build them tower and temple fall to dust.

But God’s power, hour by hour, is my temple and my tower.


3. God’s great goodness e’er endureth, deep his wisdom passing thought:

splendor, light, and life attend him beauty springeth out of nought.

Evermore from his store new-born worlds rise and adore.


4. Daily doth the almighty Giver bounteous gifts on us bestow;

his desire our soul de lighteth, pleasure leads us where we go.

Love doth stand at his hand; joy doth wait on his command.


5. Still from earth to God eternal sacrifice of praise be done

high above all praises praising for the gift of Christ, his Son.

Christ doth call one and all: ye who follow shall not fall.



Celebrant: Bless the Lord who forgives all our sins.

People: His mercy endures for ever.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.    1 John 1:8,9


The Deacon/Priest invites the congregation to confession.

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.


Silence may be kept.


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.


Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you
in eternal life. Amen.


Celebrant: Let us pray.

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


Please be seated for the lessons.


Old Testament     Ezekiel 37: 1-14

A Reading from the book of the prophet Ezekiel

The hand of the Lord came upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.”


So I prophesied as I had been commanded; and as I prophesied, suddenly there was a noise, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, mortal, and say to the breath: Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.” I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood on their feet, a vast multitude.


Then he said to me, “Mortal, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are cut off completely.’ Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: I am going to open your graves, and bring you up from your graves, O my people; and I will bring you back to the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves, and bring you up from your graves, O my people. I will put my spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you on your own soil; then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken and will act,” says the Lord.


The Word of the Lord.        Response:  Thanks be to God.



Psalm130  (said responsively by half-verse) Please remain seated.

1 Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord;
Lord, hear my voice; *
     let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.

2 If you, Lord, were to note what is done amiss, *
     O Lord, who could stand?

3 For there is forgiveness with you; *
     therefore you shall be feared.

4 I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him; *
     in his word is my hope.

5 My soul waits for the Lord,
more than watchmen for the morning, *
     more than watchmen for the morning.

6 O Israel, wait for the Lord, *
     for with the Lord there is mercy;

7 With him there is plenteous redemption, *
     and he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.



Epistle     Romans 8:6-11

A Reading from the Letter to the Romans

To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For this reason the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law– indeed it cannot, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.


But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.

The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.



GRADUAL HYMN                 Out of the Depths I Call                                               Hymnal 1982 #666


1  Out of the depths I call,

       to God I send my cry;

   Lord, hear my supplicating voice

       and graciously reply.


2  My soul with patience waits

       for thee, the living Lord,

   my hopes are on thy promise built,

       thy never-failing word.


3  My longing eyes look out

       for thy enlivening ray,

   more duly than the morning watch

       to spy the dawning day.


4  Let Israel trust in God;

       no bounds his mercy knows;

   the plenteous source and spring from whence

       redemption ever flows.



 Please stand as you are able for the Gospel proclamation.



The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John.


Glory to you Lord Christ.

Gospel     John 11:1-45

Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped his feet with her hair; her brother Lazarus was ill. So the sisters sent a message to Jesus, “Lord, he whom you love is ill.” But when Jesus heard it, he said, “This illness does not lead to death; rather it is for God’s glory, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” Accordingly, though Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus, after having heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.


Then after this he said to the disciples, “Let us go to Judea again.” The disciples said to him, “Rabbi, the Jews were just now trying to stone you, and are you going there again?” Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Those who walk during the day do not stumble, because they see the light of this world. But those who walk at night stumble, because the light is not in them.” After saying this, he told them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going there to awaken him.” The disciples said to him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will be all right.” Jesus, however, had been speaking about his death, but they thought that he was referring merely to sleep. Then Jesus told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. For your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.” Thomas, who was called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”


When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, some two miles away, and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them about their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary stayed at home. Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.”


When she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary, and told her privately, “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.” And when she heard it, she got up quickly and went to him. Now Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. The Jews who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary get up quickly and go out. They followed her because they thought that she was going to the tomb to weep there. When Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, she knelt at his feet and said to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was greatly disturbed in spirit and deeply moved. He said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus began to weep. So the Jews said, “See how he loved him!” But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”

Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, already there is a stench because he has been dead four days.” Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upward and said, “Father, I thank you for having heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”


Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him.


The Gospel of the Lord.   Response: Praise to you Lord Christ.



Sermon The Rev. Cricket Park



Please stand as you are able for the Nicene Creed. We say the Creed in unison.


The Nicene Creed

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.

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 all bishops, priests, and deacons;
     That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

We pray 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.

Let us pray for our own needs and those of others.




The Celebrant continues

Heavenly Father, you have promised to hear what we ask in the Name of your Son: Accept and fulfill our petitions, we pray, not as we ask in our ignorance, nor as we deserve in our sinfulness, but as you know and love us in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



Celebrant The peace of the Lord be always with you.

People And also with you.


Announcements & Birthday/Anniversary Prayers


OFFERTORY                 Sing We of the Blessed Mother                                       Richard Proulx



Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise God all creatures here below;

Praise God above ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.






Celebrant The Lord be with you.

People And also with you.

Celebrant Lift up your hearts.

People We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People It is right to give him thanks and praise.


The Celebrant proceeds

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.


Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who was tempted in every way as we are, yet did not sin. By his grace we are able to triumph over every evil, and to live no longer for ourselves alone, but for him who died for us and rose again.


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:


Celebrant and People Hymnal 1982 #S130


All: Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory.  Hosanna in the highest.  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.  Hosanna in the highest.  Hosanna in the highest.  



The people stand or kneel. Then the Celebrant continues


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:

Celebrant and People

Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.

The Celebrant continues

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. AMEN.


As our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold 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.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
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.



The Breaking of the Bread


The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread. A period of silence is kept.

Agnus Dei Hymnal 1982 #S164


Jesus, Lamb of God:
have mercy on us,


Jesus, Lamb of God,
Bearer of our sins:
have mercy on us,


Jesus, redeemer,

redeemer of the world:

give us your peace,

give us your peace.



Facing the people, the Celebrant says the following Invitation


The Gifts of God for the People of God. Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you and feed on him in your hearts by faith with thanksgiving.


Come to God’s altar. You are welcome to receive communion. If you wish only to receive a blessing from the priest, please cross your arms when you come forward.  If you require a gluten-free wafer, or communion at your pew, please let the ushers know.


Communion Hymn                   O Food to Pilgrims Given                             Hymnal 1982 #309


1 O Food to pilgrims given,

   O Bread of life from heaven,

       O Manna from on high!

   We hunger; Lord, supply us,

   nor thy delights deny us,

       whose hearts to thee draw nigh.


2 O stream of love past telling,

   O purest fountain, welling

       from out the Savior’s side!

   We faint with thirst; revive us,

   of thine abundance give us,

       and all we need provide.


3 O Jesus, by thee bidden,

       we here adore thee, hidden

   in forms of bread and wine.

   Grant when the veil is riven,

   we may behold, in heaven,

       thy countenance divine.


After Communion, the Celebrant says

Let us pray.


Celebrant and People

Eternal God, heavenly Father,
you have graciously accepted us as living members
of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ,
and you have fed us with spiritual food
in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.
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.





Look mercifully on this family, Almighty God, that by your great goodness they may be governed and preserved evermore; through Christ our Lord. Amen.



CLOSING HYMN                  Hail, Thou Once Despised Jesus                      Hymnal 1982 #495


1  Hail, thou once despisèd Jesus! Hail, thou Galilean King!

     Thou didst suffer to release us; thou didst free salvation bring.

     Hail, thou universal Savior, bearer of our sin and shame!

     By thy merit we find favor: life is given through thy Name



2  Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, all our sins on thee were laid:

     by almighty love anointed, thou hast full atonement made.

     All thy people are forgiven through the virtue of thy blood:

     opened is the gate of heaven, reconciled are we with God.



3  Jesus, hail! enthroned in glory,    there for ever to abide;

     all the heavenly hosts adore thee, seated at thy Father’s side.

     There for sinners thou art pleading: there thou dost our place prepare;

     ever for us interceding, till in glory we appear.



4  Worship, honor, power, and blessing thou art worthy to receive;

     highest praises, without ceasing, right it is for us to give.

     Help, ye bright angelic spirits, all your noblest anthems raise;

          help to sing our Savior’s merits, help to chant Emmanuel’s praise!





Thanks be to God.

A prayer for St. Mark’s in a time of transition

O Lord, Father of life and change, of new and old: You gifted us with abilities to speak and listen, to hear and decide, to choose and know. We thank you for teaching us how to used these abilities, though we must at times remember to combine them with patience. Remind us to speak with kindness, to listen to understand, to hear all voices, to decide on what is just and true, to choose the path of peace, and to know we are not alone. Be with us in this time of transition, that it is as effective as it is unsettling, as comforting as it is confusing. And never leave our side on the journey ahead, as we strive for an unknown destination. In the name of your Son Jesus, who walks alongside us, we pray. Amen.
