LITURGICAL MINISTRY TRAINING
Some of the most visible ministries are those which serve in the context of the liturgy. To help with the fulfilling of some of those ministries in our midst, we will have training sessions for Eucharisitic Ministers and Worship Leaders. These sessions will be a refresher for those who are already serving, and will afford an opportunity for those who would like to join anew.
Worship Leaders are those who serve by officiating at the Daily Office. When the faithful gather for Morning and Evening Prayer, the Officiant leads them in the liturgy, and when provided reads a prepared homily.
In light of the training session, there will be no Sunday School class tomorrow. Please also note that if you are currently serving in one of these ministries, you need to attend the training for licensing by the Diocese.
As we come to a point of transition, there are numerous opportunities for folks to help keep up the week to week flow of information for members, guests, and the wider community. These include:
- Trinity's Website (recently updated and simplified) along with Online Signups for Altar Flowers and Coffee Hour
- Weekly Newsletter & Church Email
- Sunday Bulletins, Parish Prayer List, & Prayers of the People
- Facebook & Instagram
If you think you might be interested in heading up or assisting with one of the ministries above, please contact a member of the Mission Leadership Team.
Mission Leadership Team:
The Mission Leadership Team will meet after church tomorrow, January 16.
Farewell Parish Dinner & Annual Meeting:
On Sunday, January 19, we will have our Annual Parish meeting. Please make plans to be with us for this important meeting as we elect new members to the Mission Leadership Team and take a look at the year past and consider the year ahead.
Before the meeting, we will have a parish dinner, and we will also take this opportunity to say our goodbyes as Fr. Ben's time comes to a close on his last Sunday at Trinity.
We will be at Countryside Manor on Wednesday this coming week, January 15, for Mass at 10 am.
Parish Prayer List:
Please take a look so we can pray intentionally for each name on the list. Can someone be moved off our prayer list? Do you know someone we should add?

The Collect: First Sunday after the Epiphany
Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan didst proclaim him thy beloved Son and anoint him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with thee and the same Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
The Lesson: Isaiah 42:1-9
Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him, he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not fail or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law. Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: “I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. I am the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”
The Psalm: 89:20-29
20 I have found David my servant; * with my holy oil have I anointed him.
21 My hand will hold him fast * and my arm will make him strong.
22 No enemy shall deceive him, * nor any wicked man bring him down.
23 I will crush his foes before him * and strike down those who hate him.
24 My faithfulness and love shall be with him, * and he shall be victorious through my Name.
25 I shall make his dominion extend * from the Great Sea to the River.
26 He will say to me, 'You are my Father, * my God, and the rock of my salvation.'
27 I will make him my firstborn * and higher than the kings of the earth.
28 I will keep my love for him for ever, * and my covenant will stand firm for him.
29 I will establish his line for ever * and his throne as the days of heaven."
The Epistle: Acts 10:34-38
Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality, but in every nation any one who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know the word which he sent to Israel, preaching good news of peace by Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all), the word which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
The Gospel: Matthew 3:13-17
Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on him; and lo, a voice from heaven, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
