The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
5th Sunday after Trinity (Proper 8) Sunday 26th June

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

INTRODUCTION
We celebrate this holy Eucharist as neighbours together in Christ. We affirm our fellowship with each other, and bring to God the needs of our neighbours.

THE COLLECT FOR THE DAY
Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified: Hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people, that in their vocation and ministry they may serve you in holiness and truth to the glory of your name; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever Amen.

READINGS (Proper 8 – Page 975/977 of Lectionary)
First Reading 1 Kings 19:15-16,19-21
The Lord ministers to an exhausted Elijah and instructs him to anoint Elisha as his successor. Elisha responds with total commitment.

Second Reading Galatians 5:1,13-25
Freed from the law’s demands, we are to use our freedom in Christ to live by the Spirit who grows Christ’s character in us.

Gospel St. Luke 9:51-62
As he journeys to Jerusalem, Jesus faces hostility, misunderstanding, and the failure of would-be followers to count the cost of discipleship.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
Grant, O Lord, we beseech you, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by your governance, that your Church may joyfully serve you in all godly quietness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Psalm 16 (Trevone only)
1 Preserve me, O God, for in you have I taken refuge; ¨ I have said to the Lord, ‘You are my lord, all my good depends on you.’
2 All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, ¨ upon those who are noble in heart.
3 Though the idols are legion that many run after, ¨ their drink offerings of blood I will not offer, neither make mention of their names upon my lips.
4 The Lord himself is my portion and my cup; ¨ in your hands alone is my fortune.
5 My share has fallen in a fair land; ¨ indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
6 I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel, ¨ and in the night watches he instructs my heart.
7 I have set the Lord always before me; ¨ he is at my right hand; I shall not fall.
8 Wherefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; ¨ my flesh also shall rest secure.
9 For you will not abandon my soul to Death, ¨ nor suffer your faithful one to see the Pit.
10 You will show me the path of life; in your presence is the fullness of joy ¨ and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
