Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People

Leader:    Through our baptism we are joined to Christ as God’s beloved chil­dren. As sisters and brothers in the Spirit, let us pray for the needs of the world and the church.  In our own diocese, let us pray for the parishes of Christ Church, Aylmer and St. Bernard-de-Clairvaux; for St. George’s, Vernon, All Saints’, Greely and Holy Trinity, Metcalfe; and for St. Barnabas, Deep River.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.

People:   For the victory of justice among the nations, and for the out­pouring of the Spirit’s gift of peace, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For the liberation of all the oppressed and imprisoned, for the preaching of the liberating gospel, and for the reconciliation of all who oppress and persecute others, we pray to the Lord.

People:   For the healing of all who are gripped by despair and frustra­tion, and for all who inspire them with hope and joy, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For all in this community to be alive to the call of their baptism, for those to receive the sacrament of baptism, for our Church School, and for all who guide and teach along the way, we pray to the Lord.

People:   For all who in their illness look to us for strength and healing in Christ, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, — especially (insert names), and — for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We remember those who have died, — especially (insert names), and — for those we name silently or aloud (silence). For all who have died in the expectation of Christ’s full victory in their life and death.

People:    Loving God of our Lord Jesus Christ, as your favour comes upon us, enlighten us to see those who search for the victory of your love. Make of us your gracious servants, that the world may rest in your peace and sing your praises with full hearts and voices, through the same Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit is one God, this day and forever. Amen.
