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.

The Prayers of the People:
Leader: In our Diocese we pray today for All Saints’, Petawawa, St. George’s, Alice, the community of the St. George’s Military Chapel, Petawawa, for the members of the Ecumenical Unit, and in our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for Christ Church, Schmeller, Marka, Amman. 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: For the churches and their leaders, at times narrowed by institutional concerns and blind to differing manifestations of faith, we pray to the Lord.
Leader: For our world, in need of healing, in search of a saviour, yet far from Jesus, we pray to the Lord.
People: For all of us here present, for those whose faith is known to God alone, and for those intentions we hold deep in our hearts, 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. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Infinite God, we have no claim to your mercy; yet it is your mercy we so desperately need.
People: Turn your ear toward our supplications, and grant us your healing touch. We ask this with faith in the name of Jesus, who is Saviour of the world and one with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

FAMINE RELIEF FOR THE HORN OF AFRICA:
Close friends of Joanne McCracken are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro January 2012 in support of famine relief for the Horn of Africa. Carol and Christian are hoping to make a small difference to help alleviate suffering, particularly for children, by supporting UNICEF. Canadian residents donating to unicef.ca via Carol and Christian’s website will have their donations matched by the Canadian Government between now and September 16th. Tax receipts will be provided by UNICEF.
Carol and Christian’s fundraising page:
OR, if you would prefer, the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is also doing relief work in Africa, and donations can be given and indicated on the offertory envelope or a marked plain envelope. If you do this by September 16th, the Canadian Government will match your donation.
PLEASE sign up at least once this fall to host the COFFEE AND FELLOWSHIP HOUR after Sunday morning services. The sign-up sheet is on the notice board in Bender Hall.
THANK YOU for bringing in your egg cartons for Carleton University’s campus food bank; however they now have a good supply, and don’t need any more.
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.
