When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.” Image from fresco in Cappadocia.

You are welcome to join us to celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord at Sacred Heart Church. Mass will be on Sunday January 7th at 9.30am. There will be an anticipated Mass on Saturday evening at 5pm. This is what we will be singing on Sunday:
Gathering: 150 The First Nowell
Penitential Rite: 522 Storrington
Gloria: 532 Storrington
Psalm: All nations shall fall prostrate before you O Lord (Ps71, p19)
Acclamation: 539 Taize
Gifts: Good King Wenceslas

  1. Good King Wenceslas looked out on the Feast of Stephen,
    When the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even.
    Brightly shone the moon that night, though the frost was cruel,
    When a poor man came in sight, gath’ring winter fuel.
  2. “Hither, page, and stand by me, if you know it, telling,
    Yonder peasant, who is he? Where and what his dwelling?”
    “Sire, he lives a good league hence, underneath the mountain,
    Right against the forest fence, by Saint Agnes’ fountain.”
  3. “Bring me food and bring me wine, bring me pine logs hither,
    You and I will see him dine, when we bear them thither.”
    Page and monarch, forth they went, forth they went together,
    Through the cold wind’s wild lament and the bitter weather.
  4. “Sire, the night is darker now, and the wind blows stronger,
    Fails my heart, I know not how; I can go no longer.”
    “Mark my footsteps, my good page, tread now in them boldly,
    You shall find the winter’s rage freeze your blood less coldly.”
  5. In his master’s steps he trod, where the snow lay dinted;
    Heat was in the very sod which the saint had printed.
    Therefore, Christian men, be sure, while God’s gifts possessing,
    You who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.

Holy Holy: 584 Storrington
Mem Acclamation:
 585 Storrington

Lamb of God: 590 Storrington
Communion: 166 As with gladness, men of old/ 151 See amid the winter’s snow
Going forth: 170 We three kings
