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: Called together as a family of faith from every time and place, we are bidden by God to pray.

People: That we might share our mutual concerns and offer the secrets of our hearts, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Let us pray for the world, for the leaders of all the nations.

People: That wis­dom and integrity might prevail among nations; for regions torn by conflict, that peace and harmony might be restored, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for Emmanuel, Arnprior, St. Paul’s, Almonte, for Crosstalk, our diocesan newspaper and for the members of the Parish Ministry Development Committee.  In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Shefa Amr.  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: Let us pray for the church; for the unity of the body of Christ, that needless division might cease; that the body may be strengthened and our common life enriched, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Let us give thanks for this parish of Trinity and for our presence in this community,

People: That persons may find here at Trinity the means to a deeper relationship with God and the support they seek, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Let us pray for those in need;

People: For the hungry and homeless, that food and shelter might be theirs; for the oppressed and downtrodden, that freedom and dignity might be theirs, 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), that health and wholeness might be theirs. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  By your power, dear God, you raised Christ Jesus and in him we too will be raised.

People: Receive our prayers and those of all your saints, that trusting in you all the days of our lives, we may know the fullness of your love and the power of the resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory Hymn:  Here I am, Lord


I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?


Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have born my peoples pain.
I have wept for love of them, They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them,
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide,
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them,
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.
