THIRD SUNDAY IN LENT
Date: Sunday, March 15, 2020 – Third Sunday in Lent | Preacher: Andrew Colman
A message from our rector:
Dear People of Christ Church Deer Park
As you likely know, Bishop Andrew Asbil asked Anglicans in the diocese to discontinue Sunday and other weekly worship services while the province and country are in the midst of efforts to contain COVID-19.
In an effort to offer you elements of our worship online, we have posted this morning’s sermon by Andrew Colman, our children and youth ministry coordinator.
Stay tuned to our website and our Facebook page for other opportunities for prayer and worship. In the meantime please pray for the city and indeed, our world, in these trying times.
Almighty and All–loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in Canada and across the world.
Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress
and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.
(Prayer Adapted from The (Anglican) Church of Ireland)
The Reverend Canon Cheryl Palmer
