Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Empowered by the Lord’s promise that he will do whatever we ask in his name, let us pray in Jesus’ name.  For those named in the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar, and in our Parish Prayer Calendar we pray today for St. James the Apostle, Carp, Christ Church, Huntley, St. John’s, Sixth Line, for the staff of the Administrative Office, and the members of the Financial Affairs Committee and its subcommittees.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.

People: For the church of God and for its leaders, that our lives may be for the glory of God alone, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For more vigorous efforts to unite all Christian peoples, so that factions and jealousies do not prevent the spread of the gospel, we pray to the Lord.

People: For all who exercise the ministry of preaching, that their words may be full of the Spirit and of wisdom, we pray to the 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).  For those among us whose hearts are troubled and anxious, that they may find support in our care, we pray to the Lord.

People: For this local community at Trinity, that our belief in God will be deep­ened by the word and sacrament we share, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). God of our Lord Jesus Christ, we bring these and all our needs to you, filled with confidence in the power of Jesus’ name.

People: Hear us and answer our prayers in your great wisdom and love. We ask this through Christ who is our risen Lord now and forever.  Amen.

SPRING CLEANING?  This autumn Trinity will be participating in the annual Old Ottawa South Porch Sale on Saturday, September 10th.  Please keep this sale in mind while you are Spring Cleaning, and set aside any saleable items for then.  If you can’t keep items at home until the fall, you can bring them to the Church for storage.  As the date comes nearer we will be asking for volunteers and providing more details. Questions?  Please contact Paul Merriam or leave a message at the Church Office.

FROSTY FAIR PLANNING:  Yes folks, it’s that time again – just as the tulips are starting to bloom!  But we need to settle who might do what – and when.  A planning meeting will be held after the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, June 5th, in the Canterbury Room – please pick up a coffee and join us.  

RECORD OF YOUR DONATIONS:  Please pick up your letter containing a record of your donations for the first four months of 2011 at the back of the church.


TRUMPET, ORGAN AND PIANO CONCERT: Join us Friday, May 27th, at 7:30 p.m. for a concert of trumpet, organ and piano music.  Featuring Craig Pedersen, trumpet, and Victoria Scott playing the organ and Trinity’s newly refurbished Heintzman piano.  Tickets are $15/$10 for students and seniors.  Please see Victoria or email her at to reserve a ticket!

PARISH PICNIC, Sunday June 12th, at 10:00 a.m.  Our annual picnic of worship, fun and food will be at Brewer Park.  Please bring picnic food to share, drinks, lawn chairs, smiles and a friend.  If weather is iffy, call the church for confirmation of location.

CENTRETOWN EMERGENCY FOOD CENTRE (CEFC) is always looking for donations of both food and money to help serve its clients, particularly during the summer months when expenses remain high and donations fall off. Food requests for the month are canned vegetables, Kraft dinner and canned soup.  They are also looking for volunteers, and can be reached at 613-232-3059.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.


If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
