Collect of the Day

Holy One of Israel, covenant-keeper,
you gather in what has been rejected,
restoring what is lost and healing what is wounded.
Give us faith to speak out boldly,
so that the outcast may be welcomed
and all may be blessed. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
The good news of salvation is not limited to a particular group or nation but available to the whole world.

Leader: In faith, let us pray to the God of all the earth. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray for St. Stephen’s, Ottawa, and the Rev. George Kwari. For St. John’s Lutheran Church, and Pastor Joel Crouse. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Arab Evangelical Episcopal School, Ramallah, Palestine. We pray for John, our bishop, for Arran, our priest, and for Allan, our honorary assistant. We pray for all clergy and people.

People: Holy God, may the worship of your Church throughout the world be attentive and expectant, ready to be set on fire again and again with the outrageous foolishness of loving, without exceptions and without limits and without praise. (Silence)

Leader: Servant God:

People: let us honour you with our lives.

Leader: Holy God, may all that encourages people in goodness, honesty and compassion be blessed and grow; may all that encourages self-seeking and cruelty, prejudice and deceit wither and be exposed as the unsatisfying rubbish it is. May we learn from one another’s cultures and respect one another’s differences. (Silence)

Leader: Servant God:

People: let us honour you with our lives.

Leader: Holy God, we pray for all whose backgrounds make belief in a loving God laughable or terrifying. We pray for all who suffer mental or emotional anguish and those who despair. We pray for those facing another day of pain, another day of hunger, another day of fear. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Servant God:

People: let us honour you with our lives.




Leader: Holy God, gather into your eternal kingdom all who have come to the end of this earthly life and rejoice to see you as you really are. We remember all whom we love but can no longer see, and thank you for your overarching love and undergirding faithfulness to us. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Servant God:

People: let us honour you with our lives.

Leader: Holy God, we remember with gratitude all who gave up so much to bring the good news to our country, and pray that with us it may continue to be spread until the whole earth knows of your truth and love.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers in the name of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.
You bring forth bread from the earth
and fruit from the vine.
Nourish us with these gifts,
so that we might be for the world
signs of your gracious presence in Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

An invitation from Robert Taylor, Refugee Committee chair:

Hello all,


It has now been a week since the happy occasion when Ali and his two brothers, Ghassan and Emad, arrived. Everything is going well. But it has been a very busy time, with formalities to be addressed, and the fact that school starts in a month, among other things.


A party where all of us can meet and greet Ali, Ghassan and Emad, as well as their mother Sawsan and sister, Sarah, will be held on Saturday, September 9 at Trinity Anglican Church, 1230 Bank Street, from 2 pm to 4 pm


Everyone is invited. Please come.


The event will be very much like the parties held at Trinity after the Alsebaee family arrived and to mark their first year here.


I look forward to seeing you on September 9.



Chi chiskutimaasunaanaau: We are learning
Saturday, September 9, 9:30am – 7pm

The Indigenous peoples of Canada possess a rich heritage of traditions and customs, which have often been repressed. Sadly, the Church has often participated in this repression–leaving many Aboriginal people disconnected from their roots, and many non-Aboriginal people ignorant of how much these traditions bring to our common life. Recently, the report by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission has brought new attention to this sad state of affairs and has emphasized the importance of educating Canadians about Indigenous ways.

To help with this, Good Shepherd Church is partnering with Kateri Native Ministry of Ottawato organize a day-long event which will help us grow in understanding and appreciation of Indigenous culture. Our Chi chiskutimaasunaanaau: We Are Learning event will introduce participants to traditional First Nations practices such as sacred fire, tobacco teachings, drumming and more. We’ll also hear from First Nations people who work to integrate their traditional ways with their Christian faith. The afternoon will include a presentation on the Indian Residential School system and its ongoing legacy.

The event will take place “On the Land” in Fitzroy Harbour, to emphasize the connection between Indigenous traditions and the land. Lunch and supper will be provided.

Participants must register by August 31, 2017. Cost of registration is $10 per person. The address will be provided upon registration, and participants must arrange their own transportation. Those with special dietary restrictions or mobility concerns should contact us for more information on how we can best accommodate your needs. Contact Rev. Stephen Silverthorne at or 613-823-8118 to register.

Funding for this event has been provided in part by the Healing and Reconciliation Fund of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa.
