MUSIC – SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT
1. How good, Lord, to be here!
Your glory fills the night;
Your face and garments, like the sun,
Shine with unborrowed light.
2. How good, Lord, to be here,
Your beauty to behold
Where Moses and Elijah stand,
Your messengers of old.
3.. How good, Lord, to be here!
Yet we may not remain;
But since you bid us leave the mount,
Come with us to the plain.
Text: Luke 9:32-33; Joseph A. Robinson, 1858-1933, alt.
Psalm Response: I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
Praise and honor to you, O Lord, O Lord. Praise and honor to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
Presentation (5:30, 7:30 and 10:30):
1. Transform us as you, transfigured,
Stood apart on Tabor's height.
Lead us up our sacred mountains,
Search us with revealing light.
Lift us from where we have fallen,
Full of questions, filled with fright.
2. Transform us as you, transfigured,
Once spoke with those holy ones.
We, surrounded by the witness
Of those saints whose work is done,
Live in this world as your Body,
Chosen daughters, chosen sons.
3. Transform us as you, transfigured,
Would not stay within a shrine.
Keep us from our great temptation--
Time and truth we quickly bind,
Lead us down those daily pathways
Where our love is not confined.
Text: Sylvia Dunstan, 1955-1993, � 1993, GIA Publications, Inc.
Sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
Pleni sunt coeli et terra glória tua.
Hosánna in excélsis.
Benedíctus qui venit in nómine Dómini.
Hosánna in excélsis.
Letra y música: Graduale Romanum, 1974.
1, 2. Agnus Dei,
qui tollis peccáta mundi:
3. Agnus Dei,
qui tollis peccáta mundi:
dona nobis pacem.
1. Tree of Life and awesome myst'ry,
In your death we are reborn,
Though you die in all of hist'ry,
Still you rise with ev'ry morn,
Still you rise with ev'ry morn.
2. Seed that dies to rise in glory,
May we see ourselves in you,
If we learn to live your story
We may die to rise anew,
We may die to rise anew.
3. We remember truth once spoken,
Love passed on through act and word,
Ev'ry person lost and broken
Wears the body of our Lord,
Wears the body of our Lord.
4. Gentle Jesus, mighty Spirit,
Come inflame our hearts anew,
We may all your joy inherit
If we bear the cross with you,
If we bear the cross with you.
5. Christ, you lead and we shall follow,
Stumbling though our steps may be,
One with you in joy and sorrow,
We the river, you the sea,
We the river, you the sea.

ABOUT HOLY WEEK AND EASTER
Given the restrictions in place due to the pandemic, we find it necessary, just as we did at Christmas, to issue free tickets for the liturgies of Holy Week and Easter. Soon, you will receive a letter from St. Columba with all the details. The liturgies for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil will be livestreamed and be shown on the big screen in the school. When the church is full, we will make tickets available for the school and you will be able to come to church to receive Holy Communion and to Venerate the Cross. On Easter Sunday we will offer two Masses at each scheduled time – in church and the school. Sign up for registered parishioners begins on March 10.
SEATING CHANGE IN CHURCH
You will notice that we have adjusted the seating in church to bring us closer to a 50% occupancy. Simply put, do not sit in any section of a pew with an x mark on it. Thank you again for entering via the front doors and following the instruction of the ushers/greeters who work hard to seat people in the appropriate spaces.
Congratulations to our children who have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. Thanks also to Sister Marie, Sister Kathleen, our Staff and Teachers for all your hard work.
