Note: Sundays 17–21 are thematically linked by Chapter 6 of John's Gospel, leading from explanations of the Eucharist to Peter's Confession of Faith.

Perhaps we could link these Sundays with:

  • a Gospel acclamation which is not used in the preceding or following weeks
  • a set of Eucharistic Acclamations
  • a Communion Processional with a common refrain and different verses for each week.
Songs which could be used over several weeks include:
