Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

We Listen To God’s Word

The First Reading: Jonah 3:1-5, 10                       (O.T. pg. 860)  

Psalm 62:6-14       (tune #175)                             

1. Qui-et-ly I wait for God,

    My hope is in him a-lone.

    He a-lone pro-tects and saves;

    He de-fends–I shall not fall.

2. On him my sal-va-tion rests,

    God is my ref-uge and rock.

    Peo-ple, al-ways trust in God,

    Pour your heart out un-to him.

3. God a-lone gives us ref-uge.

    Poor ones are like puffs of breath,

    Rich folk are on-ly a lie,

    On the scales they’re light as breath.

4. Do not trust in vi-o-lence,

    Hope in rob-ber-y is vain;

    E-ven if you rich-es gain,

    Do not stake your life on them.

5. More than once I’ve heard God say,

    Pow’r is his, his love is sure.

    God will re-pay ev-ery-one

    In ac-cord with what they’ve done.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: As God is moved by the sincerity of our repentance, so too God is pleased by the faithfulness of our prayers. Let us offer our prayers to God.

People: You have called us, O God, to follow you. Give us the grace to listen to your call, to lay aside the things of this world, and to follow you.

Leader: We pray today for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  In our Diocese, we pray today for Christ Church, Ashton, Trinity, Cornwall, and the Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) Campaign.  In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for Christ Episcopal Church, Nazareth.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.

People: You have sent us, O God, into the world to tell the story of your love and faithfulness. Give us a holy zeal for the proclama­tion of the gospel in this place and in all the world.

Leader: You have called, O God, persons of varieties of gifts to serve your church.

People: Bless, we pray, the ministries of musicians and artists, scholars and writers, pastors and teachers, that their work enrich our common life and offer us a glimpse of the life to come.

Leader: We pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), that health and wholeness might be theirs. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).

People: You gave life, O God, for us and for all people. As you have reached out to us in love, so inspire us to be present to those we have named before you.

Leader: As we are faithful in prayer, O God, so make us faithful in following you,

People: that loving and serving you all the days of our lives, we may know the joy of the resurrection and may look with longing for your coming in power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

CARLETON UNIVERSITY ECUMENICAL CHAPLAINCY’S PAUSE TABLE, which ran during the December 2011 exam period, was a rousing success thanks to the help of eighteen partner churches. Thank you to everyone from Trinity who contributed food, and a SPECIAL THANK YOU TO VOLUNTEERS YVONNE SILVERMAN AND SUE TAYLOR FOR ALL THEIR HARD WORK.  The Pause Table fed 8,357 hungry, stressed-out students during the ten days of exams.  This is more than double the number of students served last year. The students were appreciative, many having no money left for food, or were too anxious to think about cooking. Having free food available meant that they were going into their exams with “fuel” in their systems. Encouraging words from the volunteers were also highly valued. One proctor commented that she could tell which students had been to the Pause Table because they were the calm ones!

FROSTY’S FAIR: Looking for items for the Silent Auction and the Gift Table is a year-long event. If you received gifts at Christmas (or any time during the year) that you know you will not use and would like to send them to a good home, would you like to donate them to Frosty’s Fair? You can drop them off at the office at Trinity during office hours or on Sunday mornings. Contact: Nancy Bassam (613-731-5086).


VESTRY REPORTS ARE DUE!  Tuesday, January 31st is the deadline but the earlier the better, please.  The annual Vestry meeting will be held Sunday, February 26th.  Please send your items to Jane Kurys in the Church Office as soon as possible.


You are invited to attend the next lecture of the ALYSON BRODEUR  INSPIRATIONAL HAT LECTURE SERIES: THE COST OF CARING: HOW TO MANAGE THE EMOTIONAL TOLL OF CAREGIVING.  The lecture, organized by Bruyère Continuing Care, will be held at Trinity TODAY, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. For more information, please see poster on bulletin board in Bender Hall. RSVP:


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.
