We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
As a marriage celebrates the beginning of a changed, new life for the bride and groom, so our loving, faithful God has chosen us and is ready to transform our lives for the good of the world.

Leader:  Drawn by God’s love and constant faithfulness to us let us pray for the work and ministry of our Diocesan Ecumenical Officer: The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakley.

For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: fill us to the brim.

The Communion

Anthem: O Sing Joyfully by Adrian Batten

O sing joyfully unto God our strength; make a cheerful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take the song, bring hither the tabret, the merry harp with the lute. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, even in the time appointed, and upon our solemn feast-day. For this was made a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.
