The Collect

Almighty and Everlasting God,
you have given us, your servants, grace by the confession of
true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity
and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore

be defended from all adversities;

through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen

Prayers for the People of Ukraine
We pray for Peace

On Trinity Sunday (Latin/Greek - tri = three) the Church glorifies God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit - three persons in one God, three diverse expressions of God, working together in perfect unity.  The Father sustains the world with unconditional love.  The Son offers lost people undeserved forgiveness.  The Holy Spirit gives Christ's followers unlimited resources to bear witness to God's Kingdom on earth.
