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: Come to prayer, all who labour and are heavy laden, and God will give us rest. In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for St. Paul’s, Shawville, Holy Trinity, Radford, St. George’s, Portage-du-Fort, St. Thomas, Bristol, St. Matthew’s, Charteris, St. Stephen’s, Greermount.  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: We thank you for the revelation of your gift of abundant life and for the rest coming to those who put their trust in you. For such life and rest, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We thank you for entrusting us with the message of grace, that we might speak a reconciling word to our age. For such mercy, we pray to the Lord.

People: We thank you for leading us into the ways of peace and for transforming weapons of war into tools of charity. For such peacemaking, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We thank you for the people of faith who surround us and for the family and friends, teachers and clergy who assist our growth in grace. For such companions through life, we pray to the Lord.

People: We thank you for the gifts of creation and for wholesome times of recreation. For such times 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). We thank you for those who tend the sick, accompany the frustrated, visit the lonely, comfort the dying, confront the ad­dicted, or minister to any in need. For such attention to human anguish, we pray to the Lord.

People: We thank you for sustaining all who are oppressed, all who suffer for reasons of conscience, all who are passionate for jus­tice. For such signs of the coming kingdom, 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.
