           PALM SUNDAY – THE START OF HOLY WEEK

             A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

 Introduction

Christ comes into our own lives today, in humility. Like the crowds on the first Palm Sunday, we greet him with joy. We pray for his presence among us as we share in the events of his Passion during this Holy Week.

THE COLLECT

Almighty and everlasting God, who in your tender love towards the human race sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ to take upon him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross:  grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility, and also be made partakers of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

 First Reading (page 838)                                                                         Isaiah 50.4-9 The prophet writes of the suffering servant, who accepts pain and degradation,  in the knowledge that God is his helper, who stands with him against his adversaries.

Gospel (page 840) (Feel free to sit – very long reading)           St. Luke 22.14-23.56

The Passion narrative begins at the Last Supper, and takes us through the failures of Jesus’ friends, followed by injustice, cruelty, abuse of power, suffering and death. Through all this we see the dignity of our Lord and at the end, his burial and the preparations being made by those who love him, which are to come to their fruition on what we know to be Easter Day.

 POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you humbled yourself in taking the form of a servant, and in obedience died on the cross for our salvation: give us the mind to follow you and to proclaim you as Lord and King, to the glory of God the Father.  Amen

Padstow:- On Saturday, 5th March at 2 pm, the St Petroc’s Flower Team will be meeting in the Church Rooms to make posies and we would welcome any help either in making the posies or a donation of small flowers or suitable foliage. A bucket for donations of flowers or foliage will be placed in the flower corner in Church a few days before Saturday, 5th March. Please do come along if you can, we usually make about 70 posies (help can
always be given). It is always an enjoyable afternoon and nice to have a cup of tea and chat at the same time! Rita Phillips (tel: 521600)
and …………..
Trevone:- Could the Flower Team gather at the Old Farmhouse at 2.30 p.m. on Saturday, March 5th to make up posies for Mothering Sunday. Donations of flowers and small greenery would be much appreciated and these can be left at the Old Farmhouse. Many thanks, Sue Hollingsworth (520788)
WE WAIT WITH BATED BREATH!!
Early in March the final decision will be made by The Heritage Lottery Fund whether or not we receive the major grant to enable us to do all the work necessary on the tower.
We are all hoping and praying that we will be successful as it will mean that the much needed work can begin in 2016.
Fr. Chris.

L.H.W.E. – What does it stand for?
For our services at this time of the year we have a brilliant book called LENT, HOLY WEEK AND EASTER which is a wonderful resource for all the special services and ceremonies as we run up to Easter. What is so special about Lent, Holy Week and Easter?
Lent is special because it is the time of year that we look at ourselves and try to improve our spiritual life.
Holy week is special because we are following Jesus on his journey though his last supper with his most trusted followers; his trials, mockings and beatings; his journey to the Cross and his death.
Easter is special because it is the day Jesus beat Sin and death and the day we shout “Alleluia, Christ is Risen”. He is back with us and promising us all the gift of eternal life.
Why not be with us as we journey. Lent continues through March and culminates with Easter Day on Sunday March 27th. Along the way there is Mothering Sunday on March 6th (Also known as “Refreshment Sunday”) A break from the rigours of Lent and a day to show our appreciation for our mothers.
On March 13th we move into Passion-tide when we focus on the suffering of Jesus for us.
Holy Week begins on Sunday March 20th with Palm Sunday when we re-enact the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem – the day when everyone in the congregation receives a blessed Palm Cross to take home.
On Maundy Thursday (24th) we remember Jesus in the Upper Room at the Last Supper and “Watch” with him in the garden. O

n Good Friday (25th) We have the Ecumenical Procession of Witness through the town and finishing on the Quay. We start outside Prideaux Place main gate (Opposite the former Catholic Church) at 12 noon.
Easter Day (27th) we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead – the heart of our Christian belief.
COME WITH US – WE’D LOVE YOU TO JOIN US
Fr. Chris.

PASSION-TIDE – FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT

“The Weekly News”   – 13th March 2016

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

 

INTRODUCTION TO WORSHIP

When Judas used the poor to justify his own intransigence, Jesus said, “You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”   While we are with Jesus today, let us enjoy his company as we worship God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

THE COLLECT

Most merciful God,

who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ delivered and saved the world:  Grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross we may triumph in the power of his victory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 834/835)

First Reading                                                                                                  Isaiah 43.16-21

God is about to do a new thing. God will make a way in the wilderness and produce rivers to water the desert. God’s people will be properly nourished.

 

Second Reading                                                                                       Philippians 3.4b-14

Paul can boast of impeccable antecedents, but he regards all this as so much rubbish beside the amazing value of a personal relationship with Jesus.

 

The Gospel                                                                                                      St. John 12.1-8

At a dinner party, Mary anoints Jesus’ feet with perfume and wipes them on her hair, thus scandalising Judas Iscariot’s sense of propriety. But Jesus is unfazed.  He accepts her actions and tells Judas to leave her alone.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you:  Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all, and gave up your life and died for us, but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen

THE COLLECT
God of compassion, whose Son Jesus Christ, the child of Mary, shared the life
of a home in Nazareth, and on the cross drew the whole human family to himself: strengthen us in our daily living that in joy and in sorrow we may know the power of your presence to bind together and to heal; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

TODAY’S READINGS – (Page 830/833)

First Reading Exodus 2:1-10
God used three women’s gifts to save Moses: his mother’s faith, his sister’s intelligence and the compassion of Pharaoh’s daughter. He can use our
gifts, too.

Second Reading Colossians 3: 12-17
St. Paul tells of how we should be living the Christian life and be true disciples

Gospel St. Luke 2: 33-35
The news that Jesus brings salvation is greeted with amazement and opposition, then as now; even those who love him most can be torn.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
Loving God, as a mother feeds her children at the breast you feed us in this sacrament with the food and drink of eternal life: help us who have tasted your goodness to grow in grace within the household of faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

This year Janet Dawe, Peter Crawford and Lilian Martyn (Padstow) and Jane Saunders (Trevone) all retire and we thank them for their devoted service to the PCC for the past three years. There has also been a vacancy for Trevone this year so we have 3 vacancies for Padstow and 2 for Trevone.
There are application forms at the back for both churches for you to complete if you would like your name to go forward for election at the Annual Meeting. Please hand your completed forms to either Fr. Chris of your churchwardens.

THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT

“The Weekly News”   – February 28th 2016

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

 

INTRODUCTION AND CALL TO WORSHIP

We pray that our presence here today and all our other actions, may prove our intention to follow Jesus day by day, and will be found pleasing to God.

 THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose, most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified:  mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 TODAY’S READINGS – (Page 823/825)

First Reading                                                                                                      Isaiah 55: 1-9

Accidents are not sent by God as punishment but he does invite us to seek him without delay. He gives freely and abundantly to all who act upon his call and trust his promises.

 Second Reading                                                                                   1 Corinthians 10: 1-13

We are not pre-Christians, with excuses for wrongdoing. We have Christ’s example as proof of God’s absolute love. We are not tested beyond our endurance but we ignore him at our peril!

Gospel                                                                                                              St. Luke 13: 1-9

Every day the peoples of earth face potential disaster, as individuals or nations. We need to get our relationship with God right in order to cope. Christ is our answer.

 POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Merciful Lord, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil, and with pure hearts and minds to follow you, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 Psalm 63, verses 1-9 (Trevone)

1 O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; ¨ my soul is a thirst for you.

2 My flesh also faints for you, ¨ as in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.

3 So would I gaze upon you in your holy place, ¨ that I might behold your power and you glory.

4 Your loving-kindness is better than life itself ¨ and so my lips shall praise you.

5 I will bless you as long as I live ¨ and lift up my hands in your name.

6 My soul shall be satisfied, as with marrow and fatness, ¨ and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips,

7 When I remember you upon my bed ¨ and meditate on you in the watches of the night.

8 For you have been my helper ¨ and under the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.

9 My soul clings to you; ¨ your right hand shall hold me fast.
