one God, now and for ever. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
Wealth can make us complacent so that we fail to notice the needs of those around us.

Leader: All our needs are God’s concerns. Let us pray to him now for St. Bernard-de-Clairvaux, The Reverend Mark Whittall. For the Participants and Staff of the upcoming Marriage Preparation course. We pray for Linda, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael Bird, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: God, make us a listening Church, welcoming to the hesitant, encouraging to the young, sensitive to the differences and attentive to the needs. (Silence)

Leader: God, in mercy:

People: hear us as we pray.

Leader: God, make us a caring world, wise in government, honest in promises, far-sighted in the management of resources, and open-hearted in charitable giving. (Silence)

Leader: God in mercy:

People: Hear us as we pray.

Leader: God, make us a responsible community, supporting our neighbours and friends, sharing one another’s sorrows and joys, and opening our homes to your indwelling. (Silence)

Leader: God, in mercy:

People: hear us as we pray.

Leader: God, as we remember those who have asked for our prayers, take their needs and provide for them, take their wounds and heal them, take their suffering and comfort them. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence).

Leader: God, in mercy:

People: hear us as we pray.

Leader: God, as we call to mind those who have died, may they know the welcoming of your love into eternal joy. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence).

Leader: God, in mercy:

People: hear us as we pray.

Leader: Thank you Holy God, for knowing our needs even before we become aware of them ourselves.

Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Communion

Anthem: Veni in hortum meum — Lassus

Veni in hortum meum soror mea sponsa, messui myrram meam cum aromatibus meis;

comedi favum meum cum melle meo; bibi vinum meum cum lacte meo; comedite, amici, et bibite, et inebriamini, carissimi

I come into my garden, my sister, my bride; Myrrh, I mix with my spices. Honeycomb, I eat with my honey; Wine, I drink with my milk. Eat, friends, and drink, and be inebriated with love.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.

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.

YOUVILLE CENTRE EVENT:  A Family Wellness Community BBQ will be held on Saturday Sept 14 2019 from 11:00 -2:00pm.  This event is to announce Ontario Trillium Foundation grant that the Youville Centre received in partnership with Centre Psychosocial, to expand our infant mental health and parent-child attachment programs, and to promote the positive impact our agencies’ mental health and awareness initiatives are having on young mothers and their children in our communities. 

There will be a BBQ lunch from Grill Master Catering and a TON of children’s activities including; face painting, balloon animal artist, caricature artist, bouncy castles and games, Little Ray’s Reptiles, University of Ottawa Maker Mobile, Luv2Groove interactive dance session, cotton candy, snow cones, and MORE!

Tickets are on sale NOW through our Canada Helps Event Page for $10 a person with Children 3yrs old and under being free. Ticket price includes lunch and access to all activities:
