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: With Solomon and the great sages of our lineage,

People: let us now turn our hearts to God and seek true wisdom as we pray to the Lord.

Leader: In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for St. Stephen’s, Ottawa, St. Matthias, Ottawa, and for the members of the Ottawa Primate’s World Relief Fund and Development Fund 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 our Priest, for all the clergy and people.

People: For the leaders of religious communities and parishes through­out the earth, as they journey towards truth and clarity, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For governmental officials, caught in the arms race, locked in an age of deceit and suspicion, we pray to the Lord.

People: For the youth of our age in their search for the pearl of identity, 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 pray to you O Lord.

People: For the sick, for the dying victims of incurable disease, for those chained by depressions, fear, and addiction, and for those who minister to them, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For all mothers and fathers who awake today without food for their children, we pray to the Lord.

People: For those who seek and never find, for those who travel with­out purpose, and for those blind to the needs of others, 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: Astonish us once again, O God, and bring forth from the storeroom of your heart the abundance of wisdom. May all who ask for our prayers know your love, and may we give testimony to your grace in our lives of compassion. In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.
