Collect of the Day

Oh God
From your providing hand
even the dissatisfied and grumbling
receive what they need for their lives.

Teach us your ways of justice

And lead us to practise your generosity,

So that we may live a life worthy of the gospel

Made known through your Son

Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
We have no right to be envious at the generosity and mercy God shows to others.

Leader: Let us come with openness to express our concerns for the Church and the world, to the God of compassion and gracious understanding. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray for St John’s, March, St Paul’s, Dunrobin, St Mary’s, North March. For all the Parish Secretaries and Parish Administrators in the Diocese of Ottawa In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for Salt Training and Resource Institute for Disability, Salt, Jordan.

People: Loving God, whenever we start to get offended by your generosity or open-mindedness, give us the grace to repent and join your rejoicing. Guard the Church against self-righteousness and all rules and limits which you would not own, but keep always before us the rule of love. (Silence)

Leader: Not our will:

People: but your will, Lord, be done.

Leader: Loving God, increase in us love not only for the victims but for the perpetrators of evil and violence in our world; for all governments which run on corruption and fear. We pray for a change of heart and attitude, an awakening to a better way of living, and the courage to reject wrong principles. (Silence)

Leader: Not our will:

People: but your will, Lord, be done.

Leader: Loving God, may our closeness to family and friends make us never exclusive, shutting others out, but always inclusive, welcoming others in. Encourage us in outgoing hospitality and keep us from becoming possessive with those we love. (Silence)

Leader: Not our will:

People: but your will, Lord, be done.

Leader: Loving God, we pray for all offenders in prison, that on release they will not re-offend but find enough support to start a new life in the community. We pray for all who are vulnerable and unable to cope with demands of life in the community. We pray for all who are vulnerable and unable to cope with the demands of life, for alcoholics, drug addicts and all who are sick in mind. We pray for proper, compassionate help for them. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Not our will:

People: but your will, Lord, be done.

Leader: Loving God, we pray for those who have died alone, unmourned and unnoticed. We pray for those who have committed suicide or died in accidents of their own making. We commend them to your merciful love. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Not our will:

People: but your will, Lord, be done.

Leader: Loving God, thank you for helping us to pray; deepen our loving so that as we pray through this week we may do it with your heart of compassion. Merciful God, accept these prayers for the sake 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.

The Communion

Anthem: My eyes for Beauty Pine by Herbert Howells


My eyes for beauty pine, My soul for Goddes grace;

No other care nor hope is mine, To heaven I turn my face.


One splendour thence is shed From all the stars above:

‘Tis named when God’s name is said, ‘Tis Love, ’tis heavenly Love


And every gentle heart That burns with true desire,

Is lit from eyes that mirror part Of that celestial fire.


Prayer after Communion


We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Frosty Fair meeting today after church. Get your coffee or tea. See you in the Canterbury room.


Frosty’s Fair is Saturday, November 4. We are looking for all kinds of gently used Christmas decorations for the Christmas

Table and for any jewellery you just don’t wear any more for the Jewellery boutique.  If you have any of these items for the bazaar you can bring them to Trinity now, Sundays or during office hours (Tues.-Thurs. 10:00-2:00).

Are you making jam, jelly preserves? Bring them in just before the bazaar-more information to come.


Out of the Cold Dinner Volunteers Needed: Once again Trinity will be hosting a dinner at Southminster United Church on Aylmer Ave.   Volunteers are needed.

Saturday, October 14, 2017, to help with set up, prepare the dinner, register guests, serve dinner and clean-up.  Shifts are between 2 and 3 hours between 2PM and 7PM. Volunteers of all ages welcome.  No experience required.  The sign-up sheet is in Bender Hall.  We have hosted these dinners for many years and volunteers always leave grateful for the opportunity to serve…and so will you.  Please consider joining us.

MAGAZINES for OUT of the COLD – Trinity is collecting magazines for guests who attend Out of the Cold dinners. If you are planning to help out on October 14th, you can bring your magazines with you. Otherwise, magazines can be left at the back of the church. All topics welcome French or English.

Synod will take place from November 2nd through 4th.

Synod is an annual meeting of Anglican churches in the diocese of Ottawa (extending from Rutherglen and Mattawa to Cornwall and Hawkesbury, and from Sharbot Lake to Maniwaki).


To prepare, the churches of Ottawa Centre will meet in Great Chapter on 25 October.

Please bring your questions and ideas to Judy Richardson, Paul Merriam, or Reverend Arran before mid-October.

MUSIC AT TRINITY: Ebonies in Harmony is a two clarinet – one piano trio featuring Sylvie Duchesneau (clarinet-bass clarinet), Roxanne Léveillé (clarinet) and Fabien Tousignant (piano). We invite you to experience a wonderful repertoire which blends the virtuosity and ”velouté” of these instruments. October 21st 2017 @4:30pm.  Freewill Offering


CHOIR AT TRINITY: We are continuously looking at increasing our number of choir members and all are welcome.  Even if one has limited knowledge of music they are welcome.  Anyone who would consider joining the choir should get in touch with Fabien.
