As we worship in this place, we remember that for thousands of years,

land. We stand here on unceded Algonquin territory. We give thanks for

past stewardship of the land, and pledge to live here with respect, care, and

gratitude.

OPENING PRAYER

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever and ever. AMEN.
