The Communion

Anthem: Locus iste by Anton Bruckner

Locus iste a Deo factus est, inaestimabile sacramentum, irreprehensibilis est.

This place was made by God, a priceless sacrament; it is without reproach.

Prayer after Communion        

God of peace,

in this Eucharist we have been reconciled

to you and to our neighbours.

May we who have been nourished by holy things

always have the courage to forgive.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord. 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.
