Steve Agrisano

Steve Angrisano, our longtime worship leader, is taking on the role of music director for COL2020. Due to COVID precautions, our music at the Christ Our Life Catholic Regional Conference will be different but still profoundly beautiful and spiritual. We will have more contemporary songs along with a few traditional hymns, including Schubert’s “Ave Maria” and our traditional conference closing of “O God Beyond All Praising.”

Steve, as usual, will tell uplifting, meaningful stories and sing with the praise band. He also will lead a very small group of musicians, already selected, in the worship of the Mass each day. The praise band prelude to Mass on Saturday, Sept. 26 will begin at approximately 8:45 am. The prelude on Sunday will start at 12:15 pm.  Saturday afternoon, we will sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet. And that evening, at approximately 8 pm, we will hold the Eucharistic Procession, Adoration and Benediction, with moments of song, praise, prayer and silence.

Participants in the Arena are asked to softly join in while sitting far apart. All of this is in keeping with approvals regarding social distancing and safety from our Diocese and the Arena.

During the Mass said each day of the Conference, we will sing the liturgical parts from the “Mass of Renewal by Curtis Stephen. Click on this link to become familiar with these Mass parts: https://youtu.be/9bpQzIaHbUM

OFFERTORY: There Is A Wideness In God’s Mercy

There’s a wideness in God’s mercy

Like the wideness of the sea;

There’s a kindness in his justice,

Which is more than liberty.

There’s a welcome for the sinner,

And more graces for the good;

There is mercy with the Savior;

There is healing in his blood.

There’s no place where earthen sorrow

Is felt more than in heav’n;

There’s no place where earthly failings

Have forgiveness freely giv’n

There is plentiful redemption

In the blood that has been shed;

There is joy for all the members

In the sorrows of the Head

For the love of God is broader

Than the measure of our mind

And the heart of the Eternal

Is most wonderfully kind.

If our love were but more faithful,

We should take him at his word;

And our lives would be thanksgiving

For the goodness of the Lord

For the goodness of the Lord


COMMUNION: Remain In Me

Refrain

Remain in me, I am the vine.

Remain in me; you shall have life.

You are the branches: bear fruit for all to see.

I am the vine, remain in me.

No branch can live without the tree,

nor grow or serve apart from me.

This I have told you that you may see

my love in you, your joy complete.

No longer slaves, I call you friends.

I shall be with you to the end.

Keep my commandments; I dwell in you.

So, now bear witness to the truth.

As I have done so you should do,

so as to love as I love you.

For in your witness, my love is shown;

in simple ways, my heart made known.

As I died, so too shall you die.

As I rose, so too shall you rise.

Do not be troubled: your eyes have seen.

You trust in God, have trust in me.

I am the way, the truth, the life.

I am your living sacrifice.

I offer freely my life for you.

Go now and do as I would do


COMMUNION: The King Of Love My Shepherd Is

The king of love my shepherd is,

whose goodness fails me never;

I nothing lack if I am his

and he is mine for ever.

Where streams of living water flow

a ransomed soul, he leads me;

and where the fertile pastures grow,

with food from heaven feeds me.

Perverse and foolish I have strayed,

but in his love he sought me;

and on his shoulder gently laid,

and home, rejoicing, brought me.

 In death’s dark vale I fear no ill

with you, dear Lord, beside me;

your rod and staff my comfort still,

your cross before to guide me.

 You spread a banquet in my sight

of grace beyond all knowing;

and, oh, the wonder and delight

from your pure chalice flowing!

 And so through all the length of days

your goodness fails me never:

Good Shepherd, may I sing your praise

within your house for ever!


COMMUNION-Woman Of God


CLOSING: Praise To You, O Christ Our Savior

Praise to you, O Christ, our Saviour, Word of the Father, calling us to life;

 Son of God who leads us to freedom: glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ!You are the Word who calls us out of darkness; you are the Word who leads us into light;

Opening: In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found,

He is my light, my strength, my song;

This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

What heights of love, what depths of peace,

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!

My Comforter, my All in All,

Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,

Fullness of God in helpless babe.

This gift of love and righteousness,

Scorned by the ones He came to save:

Till on that cross as Jesus died,

The wrath of God was satisfied –

For every sin on Him was laid;

Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,

Light of the world by darkness slain:

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again!

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,

For I am His and He is mine –

Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,

This is the power of Christ in me;

From life’s first cry to final breath,

Jesus commands my destiny.

No power of hell, no scheme of man,

Can ever pluck me from His hand:

Till He returns or calls me home,

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

OFFERTORY: Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art

Thou my best Thought, by day or by night

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word

I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord

Thou my great Father, I Thy true son

Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise

Thou mine Inheritance, now and always

Thou and Thou only, first in my heart

High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art

High King of Heaven, my victory won

May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun

Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall

Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all


COMMUNION: MIRACLE OF GRACE

Miracle of grace, mystery of faith, calling us to venture to the deep.

Though our senses fail, your graces still prevail, and

we become the love that we receive.

REFRAIN:

Bread of life, bread of life. Those who eat this bread shall live and never

die. Bread of life, bread of life. Your true presence in this holy sacrifice.

 Bread of life. 

Bread of life. bread of life, bread of life. 

 (Un) worthy though we are, you feed the hungry heart with

bread come down from heaven above. And like a grain of wheat, we

fall down at your feet, dying here with you. Oh, let us rise!

Your faithfulness revealed in this covenant you’ve sealed

with your very body and your blood. Come, claim your bride again with

love that cannot end, for what God joins no one can divide.

Bread of life, bread of life. Those who eat this bread shall live and never

die. Bread of life, bread of life. Your true presence in this holy sacrifice. 

Bread of life, bread of life. Those who eat this bread shall live and never die.

Bread of life, bread of life. Your true presence in this holy sacrifice. 

Bread of life. bread of life.


COMMUNION: ONE LOVE RELEASED

One bread, one body, one cup, one call, one faith, one Spirit present in us all.

One prayer, one blessing, one hope, one peace, one church, one people, one love released.

Is not this bread we share, the body of our Lord?

Is not this wine we drink, the blood of Christ outpoured?

One bread, one body, one cup, one call, one faith, one Spirit present in us all.

One prayer, one blessing, one hope, one peace, one church, one people, one love released.

I am the bread of life, eat and you shall live.

To those who share this meal, my strength I’ll always give.

One bread, one body, one cup, one call, one faith, one Spirit present in us all.

One prayer, one blessing, one hope, one peace, one church, one people, one love released.

I am the living bread, as manna from the sky.

This bread I give to you, that you may never die.

One bread, one body, one cup, one call, one faith, one Spirit present in us all.

One prayer, one blessing, one hope, one peace, one church, one people, one love released.

No one will come to me, unless our God has led.

And I shall raise them up, raise them from the dead!


COMMUNION: BUILD MY LIFE (I cannot find the lyrics to this one)


CLOSING: O GOD BEYOND ALL PRAISING

O God beyond all praising,

 we worship you today

and sing the love amazing 

that songs cannot repay;

for we can only wonder 

at every gift you send,

at blessings without number

and mercies without end:

we lift our hearts before you

and wait upon your word,

we honor and adore you,

 our great and mighty Lord.

The flower of earthly splendor

in time must surely die,

its fragile bloom surrender

to you the Lord most high;

but hidden from all nature

 the eternal seed is sown –

though small in mortal stature,

 to heaven’s garden grown:

for Christ the Man from heaven

from death has set us free,

and we through him are given

 the final victory!

Then hear, O gracious Savior,

 accept the love we bring,

that we who know your favor

 may serve you as our king;

and whether our tomorrows

be filled with good or ill,

we’ll triumph through our sorrows

and rise to bless you still:

to marvel at your beauty

and glory in your ways,

and make a joyful duty

our sacrifice of praise.
