A prayer for today:
Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us to love our neighbor, and to care for those in need as if we were caring for you. In this time of anxiety, give us strength to comfort the fearful, to care for the sick, and to assure the isolated of our love, and your love, for your name’s sake. Amen.
My brothers and sisters,
At the direction of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Bishop of Los Angeles John Harvey Taylor, I regret to inform you that as of today, ALL IN-PERSON WORSHIP SERVICES AT TRINITY AND THROUGHOUT THE DIOCESE ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE as a way of continuing to care for and protect the most vulnerable among us.
Here at Trinity we will continue to make every effort to maintain our fellowship and community in these challenging times. We will be providing further suggestions for online gathering and support, and links to worship resources in the near future.
Fear not, for Our Lord has overcome the world.
All in-person meetings and events sponsored by Trinity will not be taking place until further notice.

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
Prayer Before Receiving Communion
Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer After Receiving Communion
Gracious Father, we give you praise and thanks for this Holy Communion of the Body and Blood of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, the pledge of our redemption; and we pray that it may bring us forgiveness of our sins, strength in our weakness, and everlasting salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Let us bless the Lord. Thanks be to God!
