A Service of Preparation for Holy Communion

This service of preparation for Holy Communion, based on the Beatitudes and adapted from the 1946 Book of Common Worship, provides a way for congregations to prepare for the celebration of the Lord’s Supper in keeping with the principles of the Directory for Worship. It is especially appropriate for the Season of Lent and other penitential occasions.  The section from the Beatitudes (following the sermon) might be excerpted for personal or small group use.
