Prayers of the People

Leader:    Alleluia! What was dead shall live; what was dark shall shine; what was forgotten shall be remembered, for the Lord is risen and walks among us.

People:   Let us confidently bring before God the needs of all our world, asking God for renewal, saying: Christ is risen.

Leader:    On this feast day which brings joy to all Christian believers, may we commit ourselves to work toward the unity of the church, that Christ’s body may be one, for Christ is risen.

People:   Honoring the gift of Christ’s risen body, may we rise to serve all those whose needs keep them from seeing themselves as the image of God; for Christ is risen.

Leader:    We pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (pause).  For all who have need of the gift of Easter; for all who journey from illness to health, from despair to hope, from grief to conso­lation, from loneliness to love;

People:   For all our brothers and sisters, that death may have no more power over us, for Christ is risen.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially for those named in the memorial flower list, for(insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (pause).  For all who suffer and all who mourn,

People:   That today the Lord God will wipe away all tears, for Christ is risen.

Leader:    God of life, we thank you for the mystery planted in us, the paradox of life from death and community from scattered disciples. We praise you for the dying which saves us from death and for the rising, which brings us life.

People: We pray, as we live, through Jesus the risen one, in the power of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

THE PAUSE TABLE: Trinity will be serving nourishment to tired Carleton University students on Wednesday, April 11th.  Yvonne Silverman is our coordinator and if you would like to help, you can reach her at 613-733-5901. Donations of bagels, muffins, fruit, juice boxes, etc. will be gratefully received until Tuesday April 10th. Donations may be left in the church office or just outside the office if it is closed. Yvonne will be checking at the church Monday and Tuesday for any donations.

THE CRANMER SINGERS, under the direction of Frances MacDonnell, will sing Evensong at Trinity on Sunday, April 22nd at 5:00 p.m. Please plan to join us for this wonderful music-filled service.

THE GREAT TRINITY BOOK SALE will be held in Bender Hall on Saturday, May 5th, from 9:30 to 3:00.  To make it ‘great’, we need lots of items —novels, mysteries, classics, romances, ‘book club books’, cookbooks, gardening books, books for children, CDs, etc.  Please bring them in any time after Easter, from April 10th to May 3rd. (It is hard to sort items brought in at the last minute.  And sadly, some books just won’t sell—encyclopedia sets, text books, manuals, magazines.  Please don’t bring these; recycle them elsewhere.)

HELP WANTED: If you can help sort books in the week before the sale, help set up on the evening of Friday, May 4th, or help during the actual sale (either a morning or an afternoon shift) please speak to Sue or Bob Taylor (613-230-3903), or Paul Merriam.

TRINITY WILL BE HOLDING AN OLD FASHIONED CHURCH RUMMAGE SALE on June 2nd.  Doing your spring cleaning?  Bring us any jewellery, household items in good condition, and clean, gently used clothing, linens and toys that you no longer want. The better quality the item, the better it sells!  For more information please contact Nancy Bassam (613-731-5086) or Paul Merriam.

CALLING ALL GARDENERS TO HELP WORLD VISION! We have received a very enthusiastic acknowledgement from World Vision for our generous donation of $600 to Sheila’s community at Christmas. (See the scrapbook at the back of the church, and keep your spare change coming!) It is suggested that we might continue our support by independently growing tomatoes from seeds provided by World Vision over the summer and donating the proceeds back to the project. If anyone would like to grow tomatoes in their garden over the summer to sell at church or to friends and neighbors, would they please contact Janet Hemings (822-4697) or as she will be away for a couple of weeks, Victoria Scott (730-5517) and they will provide you with the seeds.



If you have any announcement that didnt make this weeks bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
