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: God has called us to be priests for all peoples, offering to God the world’s concerns.

People: Let us then pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus, and for all people according to their needs.

Leader: In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for Holy Trinity, Metcalfe, All Saints’ Greely, St. George’s, Vernon, St. Helen’s, Orleans, and for the members of the Diocesan Eco-Justice Working Group.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea and Paul our Priests, for all the clergy and people. Blessed are you, our sovereign God: for you do not abandon what you have created, but continue to make your grace known among us.

People: We thank you for those you have chosen to speak your reconciling word in this age, and we pray for the grace to receive it, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Blessed are you, our caring God: for you hear the cries of the poor, you see the tears in the eyes of all who mourn, you feel the pain of those in anguish, and you come to the side of the lonely.

People: Call your church to compassion and service, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Blessed are you, our God of peace: for you have bid us to make warfare cease and to place our trust in you who bore us up on eagle’s wings.

People: Raise up among us peacemakers, and confound those who trust in chariots and horses, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Blessed are you, our God of justice: for you desire that all be one.

People: Erase the prejudice and class divisions among us, that together we might share in your vision of harmony, 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).  Blessed are you, our God of strength: for you do not desire harm, but you favor our health.

People: Give to us neces­sary measures of health, patience, and hope, we pray to the Lord.

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

People: Into your hands, O God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your mercy, through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
