The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
7th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY-PROPER 10- Sunday 10th July

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

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.

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your name, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of your great mercy keep us in the same; 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

READINGS (Lectionary Page 987/988)
First Reading Deuteronomy 30:9-14
Moses promises prosperity to the people of Israel if they obey the commandments of God enshrined in the Law and written on their hearts.

Second Reading: Colossians 1:1-14
Paul greets the Christians in Colossae in the opening words of his letter, and rejoices with them in their allegiance to Christ.

Gospel: St. Luke 10:25-37
Jesus responds to the challenge of the lawyer by telling the parable of the Good Samaritan. He broadens the concept of neighbour from a narrow legalistic interpretation to include everyone, everywhere, in whatever circumstances.

Lord God, whose Son is the true vine and the source of life, ever giving himself that the world may live: May we so receive within ourselves the power of his death and passion that, in his saving cup, we may share his glory and be made perfect in his love; for he is alive and reigns, now and forever. Amen
Psalm 15 (Trevone only)
1 Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle? ¨ Who may rest upon your holy hill?
2 Whoever leads an uncorrupt life ¨ and does the thing that is right;
3 Who speaks the truth from the heart ¨ and bears no deceit on the tongue;
4 Who does no evil to a friend ¨ and pours no scorn on a neighbour;
5 In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed, ¨ but who honours those who fear the Lord.
6 Whoever has sworn to a neighbour ¨ and never goes back on that word;
7 Who does not lend money in hope of gain, ¨ nor takes a bribe against the innocent;
8 Whoever does these things ¨ shall never fall.

Jane Saunders – 1946-2016
Dear Jane, a member of our congregation at St. Saviour’s Trevone died peacefully on Tuesday 28th June at her home in Trevone. We offer our love, sympathy and prayers to Martin and his family as this very sad and dark time in their lives.
Jane was greatly loved by all who knew her and we give thanks to God for her wonderful sense of humour and her great love or her family.
In her church life we give thanks for her membership of the Parochial Church Council and for her wise counsel; for all she has done in the parish and especially for introducing coffee after the service on the third Sunday of the month at St. Saviour’s.
Jane’s funeral will take place at St. John the Baptist church, Aldenham, Watford, Hertfordshire on Friday 15th July 2016 at 2.30 p.m. as Martin and Jane worshipped there for 35 years so it is a place close to both their hearts. She will be laid to her rest in St. John’s churchyard. I will be in St. Saviour’s Church from 2.30 p.m. – 3.00 p.m. on Friday to quietly remember Jane and her family as they go through the service at Aldenham. If anyone would like to join me for 30 minutes of silent prayer you are, of course, more than welcome.
There will be a Memorial service for Jane in St. Saviour’s, Trevone on Friday 29th July at 2.30 p.m. followed by refreshments at the Well Parc Hotel, Trevone.
May Jane rest in peace and rise in glory.
Fr. Chris

THANK YOU – Can I say a massive thank you for what was a truly incredible evening at the Cathedral for my Ordination. The support that I received at the Cathedral was just incredible and I know there were many more praying from afar. Many friends travelled a long way for the service and I was so thankful, it was truly moving and emotional, to see pockets of friends and family around the Cathedral. I’m sorry if I didn’t get to speak to you for very long or at all!! But please know that your presence and support meant the absolute world to me, and I feel truly blessed to have you all in my life. I couldn’t have done it without you all. Thank you.
Much love and prayers. Kirsten
