Newsletter – 29 May 2016

The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)

1st Sunday after Trinity – May 29th 2016
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

INTRODUCTION
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. Sinners as we are, we acknowledge that he came to offer his love, healing and forgiveness to all.

THE COLLECT
O God, the strength of all those who put their trust in you,
mercifully accept our prayers
and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
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 forever. Amen.

READING (Proper 4 – Page 952/954)
First Reading 1 Kings 8: 22-23, 41-43
Solomon shows his love for God and gives thanks for God’s love for his people, Israel and that He is present in the temple.

Second Reading Galatians1: 1-12
Paul greets the people of Galatia and is anxious that they are deserting him. He teaches that the Gospel is not of human origin but is the Gospel of Christ.

Gospel Reading St. Luke 7: 1-10
The Centurion comes to Jesus to ask for help but acknowledges that he is not worthy of help. Jesus sees his faith and heals the centurion’s slave.

POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Eternal Father, we thank you for nourishing us with these heavenly gifts: May our communion strengthen us in faith, build us up in hope, and make us grow in love; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
