The authorized Post Communion for the Day is normally used on Sundays and on Principal Festivals.
God of mercy,
by whose grace alone we are accepted

stir up in us the gifts of your Holy Spirit
and make us worthy of our calling;
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit
in love and joy and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Sending Out
The bishop may use a seasonal blessing from the service for Holy Baptism, or another suitable blessing, or
The God of all grace,
who called you to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus,
establish, strengthen and settle you in the faith;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
be upon you and remain with you always.
Go in the light and peace of Christ.
Thanks be to God.
From Easter to Pentecost Alleluia Alleluia may be added after both the versicle and response.
The bishop may lead the newly confirmed through the church.
