Sunday 29th May 2016

Trinity 1

The church enters what is called ‘Ordinary Time’. From November until last Sunday, the pace of changing seasons has been rapid.  This more pastoral phase lasts from now until the beginning of Advent and allows us to consider aspects of belief at greater leisure. This Sunday faith itself is considered


O God,
the strength of all those who put their trust in you,
mercifully accept our prayers
and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
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 for ever.
