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:  Let us pray in faith for our own needs and the needs of the world. In the Diocese of Ottawa we pray today for St. George’s, Campbell’s Bay, St. James’, Otter Lake, St. George’s, Thorne Centre, St. James, Wright, Christ Church, Maniwaki, and Holy Trinity, Danford Lake. 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 those churches who are resisting oppression and enduring persecution in the name of the gospel, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: For the leaders of nations, communities, and households who are faced with terrible choices and whose decisions affect the lives of many, we pray to you O Lord.

People: For those caught in addictions of mind or body, for those who feel powerless and sink ever deeper into despair, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: For those who rely on themselves, for those who struggle to trust in God’s beckoning word, for those who know fear before the actions of grace, we pray to you O Lord.

People: For all of us who gather at this Eucharistic table, we pray to you O 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).  O true and faithful God, you are the hope of those who pray to you.

People: Where there is no faith, awaken it; where there is little faith, enlarge it, that one day we may all come to acknowledge Jesus as your Son and the Saviour of the world. We ask this in his name, who is one with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.

WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH THE OLD OTTAWA SOUTH PORCH SALE: Trinity will be joining the neighbourhood Porch Sale on Saturday, September 10th (9 AM until 3 PM). 

Paul Merriam is coordinating this year’s sale, and thanks everyone who has already volunteered to help him! He is still looking for volunteers to help organize these categories of sale items:

Sports Equipment                  Small Household Appliances         

Tools                                     Dishes and Cutlery

If you’re able to help, even for a short period, please phone Paul at 613 730 7581, call or email the office, or add your name to a sign-up sheet which is located on the table near the entrance of the church.  If you are not able to help, please start thinking about clean, working items which you’d like to donate! 

If you have items to donate, but aren’t able to bring them to the church yourself, please call Trevor Heavens at 613-238-3419, and he will come and collect them from you.

Please keep saving books, but don’t bring them to the Porch Sale. There will be a book sale later – watch the Bulletin for details.

We’d like to have a strong presence in the community, and this is a great opportunity.  Thank you for your support!




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 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.  


REGULAR SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES – at 8 a.m. and at 10:00 a.m. with Choir and Church School – resume on September 11th.

THE COFFEE AND FELLOWSHIP HOUR resumes September 11th.  Please sign up to undertake this important activity at least once this fall. The sign-up sheet is on the table at the back of the church.


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.
