AFTER CLAY: The youth and leaders had an amazing time at CLAY and are already thinking about CLAY 2016 in P.E.I. September 7th we will be holding a bake sale to help pay for this journey. Starting in October entire CLAY Ottawa team will put together a presentation and go on the road to share our experience with the Ottawa Diocese. We will have Trinity’s date shortly.

THE MURAL IS COMING ALONG: The youth from Ottawa Innercity Ministries and Dominique Boisvenue are painting the mural twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays starting. Our hospitality is our major contribution to the project and is also a great way to connect with the artists who are helping us build bridges with the Old Ottawa South. If you are able to make food or serve/clean up from supper one or more times during the month of August, please tell Rev. Arran, talk to Sally Clarke, or sign up where you picked up your bulletin.
