We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory Hymn:  O God, Your Creatures Fill the Earth


O God, your creatures fill the earth with wonder and delight,

And every living thing has worth and beauty in your sight.

So playful dolphins dance and swim;

Your sheep bow down and graze.

Your songbirds share a morning hymn

To offer you their praise.


You made the pets we welcome in –

They’re wondrous blessings, too.

With paws and whiskers, wings and fins,

They offer praise to you.

O Lord, you call us to embrace These creatures in our care.

May we show kindness, love and grace

To all pets everywhere.


You made the creatures on each farm;

You know the things they need.

May they grow healthy, safe from harm,

And safe from human greed.

Just as a shepherd loves the sheep,

You know their joy, their pain.

Lord, bless the animals we keep;

May all farms be humane.


Your creatures live in every land;

They fill the sky and sea.

O Lord, you give us your command

To love them tenderly.

We’re called to have dominion here –

To care for them always.

By loving creatures you hold dear,

We offer you our praise.

The Communion

Communion Hymn:  Make Me a Channel of Your Peace


Make me a channel of your peace:

where there is hatred let me bring your love;

where there is injury, your healing power,

and where there’s doubt true faith in you.


Make me a channel of your peace:

where there’s despair in life let me bring hope;

where there is darkness, only light,

and where there’s sadness, ever joy.

O Spirit, grant that I may never seek

so much to be consoled as to console,

to be understood as to understand,

to be loved as to love with all my soul.



Make me a channel of your peace.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

in giving to all that we receive,

and in dying that we’re born to eternal life.

MEETING OF THE PASTORAL CARE TEAM: Thursday, October 13th at 1:00 pm there will be a meeting of the team.  Anyone who would like to learn more about the Pastoral Care/Prayer Team is welcome.


NEW MUSIC ON SUNDAYS: Please join us at 9:50 a.m. each week as Victoria and the choir lead us through any new hymns or music that we’ll be singing during the Service. It will be wonderful to have everyone “sing out” during the Service after running through the music beforehand!

WORDS AND MUSIC, TODAY at 4 P.M.: This is the second in this series, and features Janet Hemings, reader, and Victoria Scott, piano and organ. If you missed the first one, please plan to attend this hour of music readings, and reflection.  It offers a chance to sit quietly and enjoy the beautiful space we have at Trinity, outside of our regular worship.  A free will offering will be received.

ADULT EDUCATION: We are thinking ahead to Advent and Lent and planning some kind of educational activity. There is a need always to think about ways to enhance our spiritual lives individually and collectively. Based on previous events we want to address the issues of timing and content, and to this end there will a brief questionnaire in the Sunday bulletin. So please give this some thought. Drop your completed form in the offertory plate, at the office, or please feel free to be in touch with me by phone – 613 822 4697 or email –

David Hemings, Rector’s Warden.


  • Baking & Candy and Jams & Preserves are very popular at Frosty’s Fair.  Do you like making apple jelly or baking cakes and pies? Shoppers often stock up on these items as soon as they come into the bazaar. To keep the tables full for as long as we can, we need lots of baking and preserves. (Bring these items to the bazaar Nov. 4)
  • The Secret  Room is a special place where children can buy gifts for their family and friends. Bring items for the Secret Room and the Fish Pond during office hours or give them to Sue Cherry any Sunday.


CORNERSTONE HOUSING FOR WOMEN is in need of new or gently used bedding (pillows, sheets and blankets) and winter coats and boots in large, extra-large and double extra-large sizes. Also, the residents at the new residence on Booth Street are hoping to acquire an acoustic guitar for sing-a-longs and other social gatherings.  If you can help with any of these items, please contact Yvonne Garvey at 613-254-6584 ext. 503.  Please note they are not in need of other clothing items at this time.

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.
