We Respond to God’s Word                 

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Jesus Christ intercedes for us at all times. Together let us remember and pray to God through Christ for all those in need. In our own Diocese we pray today for Christ Church, Bells Corners, Holy Trinity, Hawkesbury, St. Matthew’s, Grenville, Christ Church, Montebello, and for the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine and their Associates. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Zababdeh.

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 church, that the fasting of these forty days may clear away much that is needless and so open our eyes to the bright glory of the cross.

Leader: For the church, that those preparing for baptism and each of us will learn to read, ponder and cherish the scriptures.

People: For all the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that we may find blessing and a zeal for justice in their covenant with God.

Leader: For all who suffer want, that God in mercy may turn our hearts toward one another and bring us to end our faithless reliance on weapons, war, and the threat of war.

People: For ourselves, that this church may walk both as burdened and as free as Jesus.

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. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). For all who have died, that they be at peace.

People: God, whose ways are beyond our knowing or approving, place the world’s troubles ever in our plain sight, and help us to work for a better world.  We ask this always through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory Hymn: Lead Me To the Cross


How can I be free from sin?
Lead me to the cross of Jesus
From the guilt, the power, the pain?
Lead me to the cross of Jesus
There’s no other way
No price that I could pay
Simply to the cross I cling
This is all I need
This is all I plead
That his blood was shed for me
How can I know peace within?
Lead me to the cross of Jesus
Sing a song of joy again!
Lead me to the cross of Jesus
Flowing from above
All-forgiving love
From the Father’s heart to me!
What a gift of grace
His own righteousness
Clothing me in purity!
 How can I live day by day?
Lead me to the cross of Jesus
Following his narrow way?
Lead me to the cross of Jesus

Saturday March 17th – Movie Matinee at 1:00 p.m.

Trinity will be showing, in the church, the movie The Clean Bin Project. This film is by a Vancouver husband-and-wife team, Jen Rustemeyer and Grant Baldwin. A fundraiser for Trinity, the admission will be “pay what you can,” with a recommended donation of $10.  Entertaining and thought-provoking, the movie documents how this couple spent a year trying to produce as little landfill waste as possible. As they put it, “For one year we will not buy any material goods and will attempt to live without producing household garbage.”

Discussion Night: Tuesday April 17th 7 to 9pm

CALLING ALL GARDENERS TO HELP WORLD VISION! We have received a very enthusiastic acknowledgement from World Vision for our generous donation of $600 to Sheila’s community at Christmas. (See the scrapbook at the back of the church, and keep your spare change coming!) It is suggested that we might continue our support by independently growing tomatoes from seeds provided by World Vision over the summer and donating the proceeds back to the project. If anyone would like to grow tomatoes in their garden over the summer to sell at church or to friends and neighbors, would they please contact Janet Hemings (822-4697) or as she will be away for a couple of weeks, Victoria Scott (730-5517) and they will provide you with the seeds.


There are still many spots to fill, so PLEASE SIGN UP TO HOST THE COFFEE AND FELLOWSHIP HOUR after Sunday morning services. The sign-up sheet is on the notice board in Bender Hall.


OUT OF THE COLD REMINDER: Please note Trinity will be hosting an Out of the Cold Supper at Southminster United Church on March 31st. More information and a volunteer sign-up sheet to follow.  Hope you will consider joining us.
