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:    Let us stand before almighty God, offering our thanksgiving and making known our requests for the whole human family and for all the world.  For the Church throughout the world, particularly The Church of West Africa; in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar, for St. Michael and All Angels, and St. John  the Evangelist, Ottawa; for the residents, staff and chaplain of the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, and for all the clergy and people.

People:   O God of morning and evening, noonday’s brightest sun and midnight’s darkest hour, hear us as we offer you our praise and dare to sing your new song.  

Leader:    For confidence to believe that your gift of life, O Lord, requires our most willing effort, and that accept­ing that gift we never forget to offer our thanks.

People:   For the land in which we live, that we see it as your gift O Lord, and that all its peoples work together with all our strength to con­form it to your holy will.

Leader:    For all in any need, for those in pain and in sorrow, and within our Parish we pray for (insert names), that your gift of hope will strengthen them on their way to wholeness.

People:   For courage and commitment, that we wait upon those in need, and that they may see in us your loving care for them.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially (insert names).  For the ties that bind us to those who have gone before, and that with all our loved ones and all the blessed saints we keep in view the joyous feast that is to come.

People:   Hear these prayers, O Lord, as you hear and understand the unspoken thoughts of our hearts and minds, and grant their fulfillment through Christ our Lord. Amen.
