Laudate Dominum omnes gentes laudate eum, omnes populi quoniam confirmata est super nos misericordia eius, et veritas Domini manet in aeternum. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper. Et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Praise the Lord, all nations; praise Him, all people. For He has bestowed his mercy upon us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and forever, and for generations of generations. Amen.

Almighty God,
you renew us at your table with the bread of life.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

MUSIC AT TRINITY: Our next Music at Trinity will be on September 28th

at 4:30pm featuring the Ottawa Chamber Players.  Freewill offering. 

AS PART OF OUR CELEBRATION OF SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI and the blessing of the animals, Saturday October 5, 2019, from 9am until 2pm, Trinity will have our first ever dog wash fundraiser! We will provide clients with a little help and the supplies they need to spiff up their dog for $10. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, there will be lots to see and do downstairs anyway! The events downstairs will include a sale of homemade Thanksgiving treats for people and also a canine table of safe homemade treats, handmade dog coats, sweaters, fancy leashes, bandanas and costumes.

We will have used books about pets for sale, as well as presentations by canine organizations and….balloon dog making by our new volunteer, Paige.  Please collect books about dogs…you can stretch that a bit to books that interest adults and kids who love dogs…. and deposit them in the box at the back of the church where you will find a list of help and donations needed. 

Please email Myrna at  to let her know how you are helping. We are thrilled to have a few offers of help from Carleton students. Please encourage your dog loving friends to show up for what should be a really fun event we expect to be very popular! We have just over a month to get crafting and baking.  

So, why a dog wash? We love all pets at Trinity, but we thought a cat wash would be…well… a little catastrophic. 

SEPTEMBER’S PARISH COUNCIL MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE ON THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 12, rather than Tuesday September 10th. Andrew Halliday, Director of the School for Parish Development in New Westminster will lead us in a discussion and discernment about how we proceed from here. 

A light supper will be available at 5:00pm with the meeting starting at 5:30 – 8:30. All parishioners are welcome to join the discussion. Please let Ann Scott (in the office) or Heather Maclachlan (613-983-1747) know you are planning to attend. 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Frosty’s Fair will be held on Saturday November 9th.We need bakers and cooks, Christmas decor and books, as well as silent auction donations and crafting creations! Talk to Jen Small if you can help out: or 613-864-6575.

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE TIME VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: The fall schedule for hosting after service coffee/tea is posted. Please note a column has been added to the roster for?new people?to sign-up. Sign up early and you have the choice of Sundays to choose from! If you can’t help out perhaps you can provide a loaf or some cookies one Sunday. You will receive friendly on the job training and all ages are welcome! See Judy Richardson after service if have any questions.?
