The Prayers of the People

Leader: Our God, the almighty one, counts the hairs of our head.

People: Let us come before God in confidence, praying for all the world.

Leader: For those named in the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar, and in our Parish Prayer Calendar we pray today forSt. Helen’s, Orleans, The Ven. Susan Churchill-Lackey, and The Rev. Canon Peter Lackey. For the volunteers of all Anglican Pastoral Care Teams. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Palestine Hospital, Amman, Jordan. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest, for all clergy and people. We thank you this day for the value you have placed upon us by giving us Christ our Savior.

People: Empower us to acknowledge this gift in lives of service, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you have answered our fears with love.

People: Give to us the faith to go where others dare not to proclaim the vastness of your love, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you are concerned with the frailty of our living. You know our addictions, our failures, our doubts, and our escapes.

People: Grant us the whole­ness we seek, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you aid those who work for justice and peace by giving them courage, vision, and strength.

People: Enlist all people in the struggle for human dignity, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you favour the poor, the weak, the oppressed, the homeless, and the hungry.

People: Make your compas­sion contagious that the rich might share with the poor, and the strong befriend the weak, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you know the dangers that lurk among us. We pray for those whom you have called to guard and protect your entire creation, those who work the land, who work for peace in our streets, who defend the nations.

People: Strengthen them for their difficult tasks, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you refresh us with times of leisure and recreation.

People: Renew us that we might further appreciate you, each other, and all that you have made, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), we pray to you O Lord. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

People: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you are always more willing to listen than we are to pray. Hear the petitions of this assembly; hear the prayers spoken in our hearts; for we pray through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

10,000 people are expected to converge in Ottawa for this historic gathering. Activists, students, unions, Indigenous peoples, youth, environmentalists, and thousands of ordinary fed-up individuals from every region will unite to oppose the current political and economic direction, and propose a plurality of alternative paths towards a better world.


The Peoples’ Social Forum will create a space for social movements to meet, interact, and propose collective actions and campaigns. The first two days will feature self-organized workshops – open to anyone to propose

– to share knowledge, ideas,strategies, and inspiring stories of resistance. The third day will focus onmovement assemblies, or large-scale facilitated meetings within a specific issue, designed to hear and gainconsensus for proposals of collective action.

Join us from 1:30 to 3:30 Saturday, July 19th at St. John the Evangelist’s Parish Hall (Elgin and Sommerset).

Con Brio is holding a Gender Workshop where we will explore gender in 2014, the idea of the “New Women’s Ministry”, and looking at womanhood and the feminine. This discussion will be focused on understanding the idea of gender, sharing our stories, and discovering our common ground. This will be a formative part of how Con Brio will sculpt its mission and vision over the next three years.
We’re looking for individuals to bring snacks/refreshments to share. Please email if you’d like to help out.


Con Brio looks to dissolve barriers between women in the Ottawa community. Our goal is to create a safer space for women of all ages, backgrounds and orientations to connect and share their lives, skills, and stories. We believe that everyone can benefit from the transformative power of the Social Gospel. We place a high value on social justice which we ground in Christian values, but we welcome women of all beliefs. We also understand that the term ‘woman’ can beexclusionary—Con Brio welcomes all people who self-identify as women.
