GATHERING AS GOD'S PEOPLE:

--Acknowledgement of the Territory:
  

We acknowledge that our sacred space is found in the indigenous territories of the Attawandaron, Anishnaabe, Haudenosaunee, Leni-Lunaape and Wendat peoples(commonly known as the Chippewa nation, Oneida, Delaware, Neutral and Huron peoples).  With thankfulness and respect for their stewardship of creation; we seek to live into right relations with all.

--Sharing the Light of Christ

--Gathering words: Prayer of Remembrance

With all the everyday saints who have shown God's love, we celebrate today. With all the everyday saints who have followed the cross of Jesus, we celebrate today. With all the everyday saints who have suffered for truth, we celebrate today. With all the everyday saints who have reflected the glory of God, we celebrate today.  come, let us celebrate with the saints of every age, and shout our hallelujahs to the world.

--Opening prayer and the Lord's prayer
