    Prayer at Julian

    Christians are encouraged to be “People of Prayer,” connecting with God through prayers:

    Adoration: Prayer expressing love and adoration for who God is.
    Thanksgiving: Prayer of thankfulness for what God does.
    Confession: Prayer acknowledging our imperfection, and asking God’s forgiveness.
    Intercession: Prayer for others who are in need of healing of body, mind and spirit.
    Petition: Prayer for ourselves.
    You are welcome to ask anyone in the congregation to pray with and for you at any time.

    Prayers of the People during Worship Services

    Most worship services include a time to offer prayers. These opportunities are called the “Prayers of the People” or “Intercessions,” which are usually led by members of the congregation. You are invited to write your request in a Prayer Request binder, located near the entrance to the sanctuary, behind the back pew.

    The binder includes a loose leaf sheet for each Sunday, with spaces under a few headings to enter names or situations that you wish to include in the Prayers of the People. This sheet is provided to the prayer leader who will include your requests in the prayers they offer during the service.

    Confidential Prayer by a Prayer Chain

    Julian of Norwich has a dedicated group of people who pray in confidence for those who are ill, in distress, or otherwise in need of prayer. If you wish to have prayer for yourself or someone you know, please fill in the Prayer Request form on below.

    Weddings

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! Julian of Norwich is happy to be part of your wedding. Please contact our church office at least 60 days before your proposed date. Marriage preparation courses are available through the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa: 
    .

    Wedding FAQ’s

    Q Who can be married at the parish?
    A Anyone desiring to be married in the church may do so. There are, however, some requirements and conditions as set out below. We have a very busy parish and most of the marriages that take place at the parish are couples who have a family or community relationship with the parish. You must agree to be married according to the rites of the Anglican Church of Canada (this is both a church and a legal requirement). The rites of the church are set out on in the Book of Alternative Services, beginning on page 526.
    To see a sample service for a marriage in which one person is a Christian and the other is a person of another faith, follow this  link.
    An Anglican priest must preside. It is not possible for priests, pastors, or ministers ordained in traditions other than the Anglican Church, nor for Civil Celebrants, to conduct a marriage in the church or anywhere on the church property.
    You do not need to live in the parish area. Most often marriage celebrations at the church are with those who have a relationship with the church community already. If one or both partners to the marriage have been married previously, and are divorced, this will not prevent you being married in our church but it will be part of the pre-wedding conversations with the priest. The Anglican Church of Canada requires that one party to the marriage must be baptised in the Christian tradition – the baptism may have been conducted in any recognised Christian church or denomination.
    Couples must take a Marriage Preparation Course. Information can be found on the Diocesan Website.
    Q What do we do first?
    A Prior to the first meeting couples are invited to attend a Sunday service and introduce yourself to the parish priest. After the service, if you are still considering having your wedding at one of the parish churches, a meeting should be booked with the priest, via email at .  Apart from meeting and discussing marriage, and taking the opportunity to find out a bit about those being married in our church, another purpose of this meeting is to get copies of the application.
    The Marriage Canon requires that at least six week's notice be given to the proposed celebrant before the marriage takes place. Couples desiring to be married at the church should contact the parish office to check that the time and date desired is available. Please note that most wedding dates are discussed with the Priest first and are often determined almost a year in advance. Please do not put a deposit on a wedding reception venue for a particular date until you have confirmed with the Priest that your wedding ceremony can take place on your preferred date.
    Q Who will lead the service?
    A The celebrant for your wedding will normally be one of the parish clergy. Where couples have an existing relationship with another Anglican priest they may seek permission from the Rector to invite that priest to conduct their marriage; however, this would be quite rare. Please note that an Anglican church may only be used for the purposes of Anglican worship with an Anglican priest presiding. It is not possible for the church to be “hired out” or “used” for other purposes, nor is it possible for clergy (priests, ministers or pastors) from churches other than the Anglican Church to conduct marriages at Julian of Norwich. Ordained ministers of other Christian churches may, however, assist and participate, usually at the point of the homily (sermon) and/or prayers. Couples desiring this must contact the Priest to discuss this and to obtain approval to do so, before inviting another minister to participate.
    Q Do we need to do a Marriage Preparation course?
    A Yes, it is a mandatory requirement of marriage in our Church and the link is found above.
    Q Costs?
    A Our fees are set by the Parish Council. The fees include: The celebrant, for the rehearsal and wedding (250.00). A professional musician (organist, and co-ordinator of the music used during the ceremony) (300.00). A donation to the church for the use of the church for the rehearsal and ceremony (300.00). This donation is a contribution to the ministry of the church. All payments must be made two weeks prior to the rehearsal.
    Q What about the Rehearsal?
    A The rehearsal normally takes place during the week prior to the wedding. Typically, the rehearsal will take about 45 minutes. The main purpose of the rehearsal is to practise the entry of the couple and their attendants into the church, and to give the bride and the groom some practical instructions about where things happen and how the service proceeds. The time and date of the rehearsal is arranged in consultation with the Priest.

    Holy Baptism

    Holy Baptism is the sign of new life in Christ, a full sacramental initiation into Christ and the Church.

    Baptismal preparation involves an introductory session with the priest and rehearsal in the church. Services of Holy Baptism take place during Sunday Eucharist; most usually during the celebrations of Pentecost, All Saints, Baptism of the Lord, and Easter.

    If you wish to be baptized, or to bring your child for baptism, please contact the Reverend Monique Stone at to discuss.

    Confirmation, reception and reaffirmation are various modes of response to baptism. Whether they involve making promises on one’s own behalf, seeking membership within a particular branch of the Church, or reaffirming promises made long ago, each is directly related to the covenant made in baptism.” (BAS 149)

    Our Bishop presides at Confirmation services in Christ Church Cathedral each Pentecost Sunday (in late May).

    Confirmation preparation courses are available as needed. Contact the parish office for more information (613-224-7178).

    Baptism FAQ’s

    Q What is the difference between baptism and christening?
    A Nothing. These are two different terms for the same thing. The Anglican church prefers to use the term baptism which is the language used in the Bible and throughout Christian history for this rite.
    Q Do I need to be a member of the church in order to have my child baptised?
    A No. The Parish is pleased to accept requests from anyone desiring to arrange for a baptism in our church.
    Q When can I schedule the baptism for?
    A Typically, a baptism for a young child is scheduled 2 – 3 months in advance. For adult baptismal candidates, 3 – 4 months is desirable to allow time for formation meetings.
    Q How do I go about requesting a baptism?
    A Call the Rector at the parish office (613-224-7178) or email Reverend Monique at . An initial meeting will be scheduled and at that meeting you will be able to discuss a potential date for baptism in the months ahead and schedule approximately 2 subsequent formation meetings (at least one of which will included the godparents as participants).
    Q Do I or my partner need to be baptised?
    A Yes. One of the parents presenting a child for baptism must themselves be baptised. If neither of you are, however, please speak to the Rector about this.

    Funerals

    “Funerals … belong to the circle of family and friends of the person who has died and, when that circle is Christian, they find an appropriate setting in the larger Christian fellowship.” (BAS 567)

    May the souls of the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    Funeral liturgies at Julian of Norwich may be followed by burial or committal of ashes to their final resting place, such as a niche in the Julian of Norwich Columbarium Monument at the St’ John’s Anglican Cemetery (1876 Merivale Road) or in The Columbarium at Christ Church Cathedral.

    Please consult as early as possible with The Reverend Deacon Elizabeth December-Lovell at for funeral planning.
