Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People

Leader:    Knowing that a mother does not desert her children, let us turn to God, asking God to embrace with loving kindness all those whose lives are troubled and afflicted by human evil. Let us beg God not to delay.

People:  God of Jesus Christ, even in our own day many are handed over to injustice and persecution, and many suffer want and hunger; come to rule the earth with justice, and don’t delay in sending your transforming love.

Leader:    God of Jesus Christ, even in our own day many families are torn apart by internal strife, sisters and brothers reach out to one another with hating hands, peoples and nations are di­vided by anger: delay not with your peace.

People:   God of Jesus Christ, even in our own day children are not spared, but are apprenticed to hatred, rejected by their own parents, forbidden even life itself: delay not with your moth­erly affection.

Leader:    God of Jesus Christ, even in our own day the followers of your child of promise are separated by prejudice and bitter division: delay not in making us into one people.

People:   God of Jesus Christ, even in our own day many find contempt and rejection within your church: delay not in bringing the harmony of love to your chosen.

Leader:    We pray for the Church throughout the world, particulary in Katsina in the province of Kaduna, Nigeria. In our own diocese, we pray for the parish of Saint Mary’s, Blackburn Hamlet; for the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer and their parish representatives; and for all members of the Brotherhood of Anglican Churchmen.  We pray for the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence); for John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.  

People:   Compassionate God, in Jesus, your child of promise, we know and await the life and peace of which you have assured us.

Leader:    We pray for those who are sick or suffering (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We remember those who have died, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We pray for all who are in need. 

People:   We look forward in longing, hoping for ourselves and for those whom we have remem­bered, in the name of the same child who lives with you in the commu­nion of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.

TRINITY’S STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN is now in Week 7.  Please return your GREEN SHEET as soon as possible!


The JACKMAN COMMITTEE will be meeting in December to disperse the interest earned on the Jackman Fund over the last year.  The funds are equally divided between projects within the Parish and outreach projects outside the Parish. The Trinity-related projects require approval from Corporation and the Budget Committee, within the context of the overall Parish budgeting process.  The committee would like to hear about projects that you feel would benefit from Jackman support. You can leave your request in the Church Office marked to the attention of the Jackman Committee or you can give it directly to Judy Richardson (or by email: no later than November 28th.

CONFIRMATION: the Bishop will be with us in February 2011.  If you are interested in being confirmed, please speak with the Rev. Andrea.

JOIN US FOR COFFEE AND FELLOWSHIP after the 10:00 a.m. service downstairs in Bender Hall.  If you would like to host Coffee Hour, there is still lots of choice of dates during November and December.  Brenda Small will introduce you to the process if necessary.  Please sign up!

On Wednesdays in Advent (December 1, 8, 15), Trinity is offering a special series: “AN INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN MEDITATION”.   Retired family therapist Ron Dicks will lead us into an experience of this ancient tradition of contemplative prayer which seeks God in silence and stillness – beyond words, thoughts and images.  Check your November Grapevine, or call the Church Office for more information (613-733-7536).

The CENTRETOWN EMERGENCY FOOD CENTRE needs Kraft dinner, canned soup, tuna and fruit, dry pasta, and bags of all kinds.  Envelopes for financial donations are at the back of the church.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Please put your change in the bucket for Sheila, our World Vision child.  Check out her scrap book for the latest information on Sheila’s activities.

If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
