“Weekly News” for The Parish of Padstow

St. Petroc’s Padstow and St. Saviour’s Trevone


A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. 

Please take our love and prayers to your home parish



To follow Jesus’ example is our first priority – people are more important than rules


Almighty God, who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:
help us to proclaim the good news of your love,
that all who hear it may be drawn to you;
through him who was lifted up on the cross,
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

THE READINGS Page 1021/22

Isaiah 58:9b-14

The demoralised Jewish community is promised restoration if they are willing to obey God’s demand for justice.

Second Reading                                   Hebrews 12:18-29

Through Jesus we are able to approach the all-powerful and terrifying God, but we should do so with appropriate reverence.

Gospel                                     St. Luke 13:10-17

Jesus defies the laws of the Sabbath to heal a crippled woman.


God our creator,

you feed your children with the true manna,
the living bread from heaven:

let this holy food sustain us through our earthly pilgrimage
until we come to that place where hunger and thirst are no more;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


PSALM FOR TODAY:  Psalm 103 1 – 8 (St. Petroc’s)

1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, ¨  and all that is within me bless his holy name.

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, ¨  and forget not all his benefits;

3 Who forgives all your sins ¨  and heals all your infirmities;

4 Who redeems your life from the Pit ¨  and crowns you with faithful love and compassion;

5 Who satisfies you with good things, ¨  so that your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.

6 The Lord executes righteousness ¨  and judgement for all who are oppressed.

7 He made his ways known to Moses ¨  and his works to the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, ¨  slow to anger and of great kindness.
