2.     Let us before his presence come with praise and thankful voice;
     Let us sing psalms to him with grace, and make a joyful noise.

      Depths of the earth are in his hand, the strength of hills is his.
4.     To him the spacious sea belongs, for he the same did make;
      The dry land also from his hands its form at first did take.

We Respond to God’s Word


Celebrant: Let us affirm our faith.

People:   We are called to be a community of faith.

We believe in God.

We believe in the goodness of God, the presence of God in all creation, and the nearness of God’s love.

We believe in Jesus, the Christ.

We believe that in him, God came to free all people from sin.

We believe that God was and is revealed in human life, that out of human suffering may come healing,

that out of death comes new life.

We believe in the Eternal Spirit, who moves among God’s people and invites the world into God’s presence.

We believe that there is one world, enfolded in eternity.

God calls us to be co-creators of a new world peace and wholeness in which the purpose of God will be fulfilled.

Therefore, we commit ourselves to be a community of faith, sisters and brothers in Jesus Christ.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: We have been birthed for holiness in Christ, by whose arduous labour we are awakened to life.

People:   That the wounds of our crucified Christ may not be in vain, let us pray to the Lord.  

Leader:    In our Diocese of Ottawa, let us pray for those in the parishes of All Saints’, Sandy Hill; The Church of St. Barnabas, Ottawa;  St. John’s, Eganville; Ascension, Killaloe; St. John’s, Tramore.  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 whole catholic church, for an end to our divisions, for all who lead and all who minister, and for all the baptized, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For the nations, for peacemakers, for all the world’s peoples, for the governing authorities in every city and state. For the wealthy and the free that they may uplift the poor and op­pressed, we pray to you O Lord.

People:   For the will to supply food and sustenance to all the world’s peo­ple, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader:    For all whom we avoid, those we consider ungodly, the out­casts and beggars, the downtrodden, for our enemies, and for an end to our hardness of heart, we pray to you O Lord.

People:   For all who yearn for health, for the handicapped, for those in mental anguish or spiritual turmoil, for the incurably ill, and for all who remember and care for them, we pray to you O 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 hearts to do what is good and right and true, and for humility before Christ, we pray to you, O Lord.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We praise you, God of our hope.

People:   That we may live faithful to eternal life, we pray to you O Lord.   

Leader:    Pour your love into our hearts, O God of peace. Give us joy in our suffering, endurance in trials, character in times of weakness, and hope in adversity.

People:   So may we live, birthed always anew in you, now and forever. Amen.

MORE “HOLY ROLLERS” NEEDED.  “Holy Rollers” count the offertory money after the 10 a.m. service.  We want to set up multiple teams to rotate weeks, so that this is not overly time-consuming.  Please speak to Rev. Andrea if you can lend a hand.

OPEN TABLE.  Trinity will be on duty at All Saints’ Sandy Hill this afternoon, this time serving dessert and clearing up.  We need 10 volunteers.   Please speak to Rev. Andrea if you can be a member of today’s team.

Can you and your family host  COFFEE HOUR after the 10 a.m. service in coming weeks?  There is lots of choice of Sundays on the sign-up sheet in Bender Hall!

PAUSE TABLE AT CARLETON UNIVERSITY.  On Wednesday, April 6th, Trinity will again be offering support and nourishment to Carleton students during spring exams.  Trinity team leader, Yvonne Silverman, is asking for donations of cookies, squares, muffins, fruit and drink boxes.  Please sign up on the sheet at the back of the church today if you can help, and bring your contributions next Sunday.

PALM TYING. Mark Saturday, April 16th, in your calendar, and come to Trinity at 10 a.m. to tie palm crosses in the Canterbury Room and then polish up the sanctuary for Easter services.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.

The CENTRETOWN CHURCHES SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE (CCSAC) is holding its AGM on March 30, 7:30 p.m. in the Church Hall (lower level) at Centretown United Church (507 Bank St.).  The guest speaker will be Joe Gunn, Executive Director of Citizens for Public Justice.  This is a crucial meeting for CCSAC which has been struggling with declining participation from a number of our member churches.  Please come out to provide support and ideas for CCSAC’s future.


If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.


Do you have good administrative and computer skills?  

Are you a self starter?   Would you like to work just

12 hours a week? If so,  then you are just the

person to be Trinity’s Parish Administrator. 

Please contact Rev. Andrea at 613-733-7536 or or more information.
