9a
Offertory - "Sisters and Brothers, with One Voice" (GELOBT SEI GOTT)

Sisters and brothers with one voice
confirm your calling and rejoice:
each is God’s child and each God’s choce:

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Strangers no more, but cherished friends
live as the body God intends,
sharing the love the Spirit sends.

Not, though, by wisdom, wealth or skill,
nor by ourselves can we fulfill
what, for the world, is God’s own will.

Christ is the way. By him alone,
seeds of the kingdom’s life are sown,
patterns of heaven and earth are shown.

Seeking and serving, with one voice,
confirm your calling and rejoice:
each is God’s child and each God’s choice.

11:15a
Offertory - Spirit, Open My Heart (arr. Fedak)

The text may be found in the hymnal, no. 692.
