Jubilee 2023

Presider: Fr. John R. Vien

Music: Lena Gokelman & friends

Welcome: Sr. Yolanda Tarango, CCVI

Opening Hymn: 

All Are Welcome

1. Let us build a house where love can dwell

And all can safely live,

A place where saints and children tell

How hearts learn to forgive.

Built of hopes and dreams and visions,

Rock of faith and vault of grace;

Here the love of Christ shall end divisions

:All are welcome, all are welcome,

all are welcome in this place.



4. Let us build a house where hands will reach

Beyond the wood and stone

To heal and strengthen, serve and teach,

And live the Word they've known.

Here the outcast and the stranger

Bear the image of God's face;

Let us bring an end to fear and danger:

All are welcome, all are welcome,

all are welcome in this place.


5. Let us build a house where all are named,

Their songs and visions heard

And loved and treasured, taught and claimed

As words within the Word.

Built of tears and cries and laughter,

Prayers of faith and songs of grace,

Let this house proclaim from floor to rafter:

All are welcome, all are welcome,

all are welcome in this place.

Micah 6:6-8


With what shall I come before the LORD,

and bow before God most high?

Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,

with calves a year old?

Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,

with myriad streams of oil?

Shall I give my firstborn for my crime,

the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

You have been told, O mortal, what is good,

and what the LORD requires of you:

Only to do justice and to love goodness,

and to walk humbly with your God.

Psalm: 34

The Lord Hears the Cry of the Poor

Second Reading: lector - Kathleen

Acts 2:42-47


They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.  All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.


John 15:12-17

Jesus said to his disciples:
"This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.
No one has greater love than this,
to lay down one's life for one's friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command you.
I no longer call you slaves,
because a slave does not know what his master is doing.
I have called you friends,
because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you
and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain,
so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.
This I command you: love one another."


Renewal of Vows

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, 

    and of the Holy Spirit.


Loving and gracious God,

in your presence and in union with Mary,

Mother of the Incarnate Word,

we renew our dedication to you as

Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.

May our lives of consecrated celibacy,

evangelical poverty and religious obedience,

lived in community,

bring us to an ever deeper union with you.

May our love for you be manifest

in our service to each other and to your people.

Accept this offering of ourselves,

and give us the grace and strength

to be faithful to you forever. Amen.

To Be Your Presence

This music recording is for a specific arrangement. I would NOT suggest using this extended version; rather a "straight" singing of the hymn.
