a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of Sunday Holy Mass. As we celebrate the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A today, the message of the Word of God tells us to faithfully and wholeheartedly serve the Lord God, being sure that the reward for such dedication will be great in heaven.
We pray in this Holy Mass for our commitment to loving and serving God without reserve both now here on earth and later in His Kingdom.
Kindly all stand and join in the entrance hymn.

Saint Paul reminds Christians of their dignity of those in the Sacrament of Baptism having died to their past sinful life and now being raised to new life in Christ to live for God alone.
