BAPTISM

You want the best for your child. And so does God! Baptism is an important first step in your child’s Christian walk. Parents who present their children for Baptism are saying:

“We are striving to live the Christian faith, and to do so within the family of Jesus’ believers. We want it for our child. We will use and celebrate our faith; and we will teach our child to do the same.”

Baptisms are administered at the regular Sunday service of worship. Prior to the baptism the parents will meet with the Parish priest to look at the service, hear some helpful ideas on Christian upbringing in the home, and answer your questions.

If you have any questions or to arrange an appointment, please call the Church Office at 613-733-7536.

COMMUNION

Bread and WineThe word Eucharist comes from the Greek word meaning “thanksgiving.” It is a worship service based upon Jesus’ Passover supper with the apostles before his trial and execution. At this traditional Jewish feast Christ consecrated bread and wine and asked the apostles to repeat these acts “in memory of me.” The Eucharist has been celebrated in Christian churches for two thousand years.

The Eucharist is also called Holy Communion, Mass, and the Lord’s Supper. It is divided into two main parts: the Liturgy of the Word, during which portions of the Bible are read and a sermon is preached; and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, during which the bread and wine are consecrated and shared.

The Anglican Church of Canada welcomes all Baptized Christians of any denomination to receive communion (Bread and Wine). A person does not have to be confirmed to receive Holy Communion. Please make the priest aware if you have gluten intolerance.

Children attending Trinity, with the permission of their parents, may receive communion as soon as they have been baptised. A program, “Life in the Eucharist,” is offered to school age children to help them understand the hows and whys of the sacraments. (From Anglican Young People’s Dictionary, 2004).

FUNERALS

When someone close to us dies, whether at the end of a long illness or without warning, we are deeply affected. Often we are in pain and have searching questions about the meaning of life, death, and our faith. At this difficult time Trinity Anglican Church would like to offer support in your bereavement.

Please don’t hesitate to call our priest, Rev. Arran Thorpe, or the church office at 613-733-7536 if you need assistance.
