We Respond to God’s Word


Celebrant: Let us affirm our faith.

People:   We are called to be a community of faith.

We believe in God.

We believe in the goodness of God, the presence of God in all creation, and the nearness of God’s love.

We believe in Jesus, the Christ.

We believe that in him, God came to free all people from sin.

We believe that God was and is revealed in human life, that out of human suffering may come healing,

that out of death comes new life.

We believe in the Eternal Spirit, who moves among God’s people and invites the world into God’s presence.

We believe that there is one world, enfolded in eternity.

God calls us to be co-creators of a new world peace and wholeness in which the purpose of God will be fulfilled.

Therefore, we commit ourselves to be a community of faith, sisters and brothers in Jesus Christ.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Our great God has formed the dust of our being in the midst of the waters of creation; let us adore the Righteous One. In our diocese of Ottawa, let us pray for the parishes of  St. Aidan’s, Ottawa; Good Shepherd, Wakefield, St. Mary Magdalene, Chelsea, and Holy Trinity, Lascelles.  Let us pray for the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.

People:    For the Tree of Golgotha, our true tree of life, by whose just fruit we live, the church worships you, O God.

Leader:    May your peo­ple ever praise and serve you and all the world’s people.

People:   O God of the seas and rains, we praise you for watering and sustaining all things living.

Leader:    We bless you for the waters flowing from Jesus’ pierced side.

People:   Give to all candidates of baptism, and to all the baptized, the sure hope of your grace.

Leader:    Send us to the nations where there is a famine of the word; show us those who await the bread of life; and confront us with those who suffer in hunger.

People:   May our abundance supply their need, O God.

Leader:    Lord and judge of all, confirm what is good and just in the hearts of those who rule the nations.

People:   Make all in authority to govern in justice the peoples whom you have made.

Leader:    For all who desire wisdom, for all who need hands to bear them up, for the naked and the outcast, for the sick and the dying.  Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), we pray to you O Lord. 

People:   For all in need of your gift of abundant health, we pray for your mercy.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

People:   For all the holy people who went before us and who served you as their only wisdom amid life’s temptations, we give you thanks, O God.

Leadeer:  Give your holy angels charge over us, and bring us who live in the wilderness of time from the waters of baptism into the garden of your great love,

People:   where we will no longer be in hunger, but filled with your life forever, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A BIG BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the Pancake Supper last Tuesday such a success: setting up, baking and cooking (delicious pancakes Dan), serving, clearing up – and eating!  As a result, we will be able to contribute over $600 to the “Out of the Cold” suppers at Southminster United Church.

LENTEN STUDY-When you’re saying the Apostles Creed have you wondered if Mary really was a virgin or why Jesus went to hell, or why do we say we believe in “the holy catholic church” if we’re not Catholic? Join us in the Canterbury Room, Thursday March 10th, 17th, 31st and April 7th starting at 7 pm until 8:30pm as we explore what we say in our Affirmation of Faith.

Saturday March 19th-“GROWING OUR CHURCH“. Please join us in the Canterbury Room for a discussion about where God is leading the Parish of Trinity. The Rev. Ross Hammond will be leading us in discerning where God is working in our community and what does God want of us. Coffee will be ready at 9am and we begin at 9:30 finishing promptly at 11:30am. Daycare can be arranged by contacting Rev Andrea prior to the event. Everyone is encouraged to attend.

We would like to get THE NURSERY going again. If you are a teenager, or have one at home, and you would like to help out with the nursery please speak to Sarah We are happy to credit volunteer hours for school.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.


If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
