The Prayers of the People

Leader: With Solomon and the great sages of our lineage,

People: let us now turn our hearts to God and seek true wisdom as we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For those named in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar, we pray for St. James’, Morrisburg, St. John the Baptist, Iroquois, Holy Trinity, Riverside Heights, and the Rev. Susan McCullough. For the work of the Ottawa Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for The Episcopal Home for Children, Ramallah, Palestine. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest, for all clergy and people.

People: For the leaders of religious communities and parishes through­out the earth, as they journey towards truth and clarity, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For governmental officials, caught in the arms race, locked in an age of deceit and suspicion, we pray to the Lord.

People: For the youth of our age in their search for the pearl of identity, 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), we pray to you O Lord.

People: For the sick, for the dying victims of incurable disease, for those chained by depressions, fear, and addiction, and for those who minister to them, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For all mothers and fathers who awake today without food for their children, we pray to the Lord.

People: For those who seek and never find, for those who travel with­out purpose, and for those blind to the needs of others, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

People: Astonish us once again, O God, and bring forth from the storeroom of your heart the abundance of wisdom. May all who ask for our prayers know your love, and may we give testimony to your grace in our lives of compassion. In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.

TODAY YOUTH ARE HEADING BACK ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO THEIR HOMES FROM CLAY. The bi-annual national gathering of Canadian Lutheran and Anglican Youth was this week from the 14th to 17th. 15 people from Ottawa participated, including 2 from Trinity. September 7th we will be holding a bake sale to help pay for this journey. When we come back, the entire CLAY Ottawa team will put together a presentation and go on the road to share our experience with the Ottawa Diocese. For more information on this gathering, talk to Kiersten or visit

THE MURAL HAS STARTED! The youth from Ottawa Innercity Ministries and Dominique Boisvenue started painting on Thursday! They will be painting the mural twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays starting this week and we need to feed them! Our hospitality is our major contribution to the project and is also a great way to connect with the artists who are helping us build bridges with the Old Ottawa South. If you are able to make food or serve/clean up from supper one or more times during the month of August, please tell Rev. Arran, contact the office, or sign up where you picked up your bulletin.

GETTING TO KNOW YOU #2: Do you know what’s great about summer? Rev. Arran has more time to visit you! As part of his ongoing “getting to know you” activities, Rev. Arran would love to visit you at home, work, or the cottage. Call Rev. Arran and invite him over! 613-733-7536 x1

E-NEWS FROM TRINITY: If you would like to keep up-to-date on what’s going on at Trinity, subscribe to our electronic newsletter. Please email the office at for more information, or subscribe under ‘Contact’ at

MESSY CHURCH IS BACK! Our next Messy Church will be Saturday, September 27th from 4-6:30. Messy Church is an active intergenerational worship service with arts and crafts, followed by supper. Worship, Create, Eat. This month’s theme: Jonah and the Big Fish!


UPDATE ON SHEILA: Thanks to all parishioners for the support of our foster child Sheila in Kenya. She turned 14 in July. I hope everyone has had the opportunity to read the letter we received and to see the drawings of chickens Sheila sent. Our last gift was chickens and roosters and right now World Vision is going to her village to see what the family wants or needs. This has cost us $140.00. Which is $100.00 for the gift and $40.00 for the investigating.   We will keep you up to date.


INTEGRITY OTTAWA INVITES ALL ANGLICAN PARISHES TO JOIN IN OTTAWA PRIDE: This is a wonderful way to demonstrate the truth to the slogan that “The Anglican Church welcomes ALL”.

GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, PHILIPPINES, VISITS CANADA:Seven years into his time as General Secretary, Padi Rex is increasingly grateful for inheriting a council with strong commitments to human rights, peace, and justice grounded in global partnerships. He names PWRDF and the United Church of Canada as two of the earliest and strongest relationships with the church and people of the Philippines.

The Philippines and Canada, he reflects, are bonded in a struggle for the conservation of the Earth, especially in the presence of Canadian mining companies on Philippine land. In these trans-Pacific connections, the Spirit moves, “We are in this together. In partnership we realize our common humanity and our dependence on God.” For more information, visit the news from General Synod at
