THE CORACLE APPEAL-The best news possible

WE’VE MADE IT – We have received the “Permission to start” letter from
Heritage Lottery Fund confirming that we have been awarded £175,000 towards the restoration and repairs to the tower. ALLELUIA!!!!
The original “questimate” some 10 years ago was £125,000 and as time has gone on and the problems looked into more deeply the final figure was a whopping £370,000. It is only through the generosity of YOU – the amazing people of Padstow and beyond; a generous legacy from dear Barry Kinsmen (£120,000) and a donation of from the Catholic community of Padstow (50,000) that we have been able to fund the work putting £200,000 into the pot.
We hope to have the scaffolding up by the end of October and then the whole tower will be shrouded with protective sheeting to allow the contractors to keep working even in the bad weather. We think that the work will be completed around Easter.
We are so very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for awarding the £175,000 as it means we can press on and get the work done as soon as possible. Everything is in place – contractors, work schedules, scaffolders – all waiting for the “Permission to start” letter. The slight downside is that we will not be allowed to ring the bells or have the clock chiming which is a shame but necessary. We offer our thanks to the bellringers for being so understanding and for their offer to prepare the bells by removing the ropes and ssealing the ringing room to prevent dust ingress into the church.
How many Garden parties, Dog shows, coffee mornings etc., etc., etc., would we have had to had to raise £175,000? Thank you Heritage Lottery Fund and thanks to everyone who does the National Lottery.
We can now do the final job of our 10 year restoration Programme.

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today
Please take our love and prayers to your home parish

OUR INTENTION TODAY
Jesus told an unusual story with a surprise ending about an incompetent and dishonest manager. In our worship today let us offer him those hidden traits of which we are ashamed and ask him to redeem them for us.

THE COLLECT
Almighty God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you: Pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself, and so bring us at last to your heavenly city where we shall see you face to face; 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.

READINGS FOR TODAY (Lectionary) Page 1042/43
First Reading Amos 8:4-7
Those who trample on the needy, bring to ruin the poor of the land or practise deceit, cause God to weep.

Second Reading 1 Timothy 2:1-7
God’s people are urged to pray regularly for those in positions of power and authority, so that all may lead a good and peaceful life.

Third Reading St. Luke 16:1-13
Jesus commends a dishonest manager not for his dishonesty but for acting shrewdly, because the manager was prepared to risk everything to save himself.

POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, and make us continually to be given to all good works through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

Psalm 113 (Padstow)
1 Give praise, you servants of the Lord, ¨ O praise the name of the Lord.

3 From the rising of the sun to its setting ¨ let the name of the Lord be praised.
4 The Lord is high above all nations ¨ and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the Lord our God, that has his throne so high, ¨ yet humbles himself to behold the things of heaven and earth?
6 He raises the poor from the dust ¨ and lifts the needy from the ashes,
7 To set them with princes, ¨ with the princes of his people.
8 He gives the barren woman a place in the house ¨ and makes her a joyful mother of children.

“2016 QUILT EXHIBITION” – THANK YOU
What can we say? With approximately 500 visitors through our church doors during the quilt exhibition last week it was a huge success!
Meeting some lovely people throughout the week along with a car driving up through the church path from Church Lane, we certainly experienced some memorable moments!
Comments from visitors and locals were very complimentary, saying how amazing our exhibition was and what a wonderful church and community we have here in Padstow.
Our raffle quilt was won by a local lady who was absolutely thrilled to be on the receiving end of this gift!
We would like to say a big thank you to our girls and anyone who helped us in any way to make this fund raiser for our precious bell tower a huge success, raising a magnificent £2850.00.

Thanks to you all. Linda, Tilly and ‘The River Camel Quilters.’

Psalm 1 (St. Petroc’s )
1 Blessed are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked, ¨nor lingered in the way of sinners, nor sat in the assembly of the scornful.
2 Their delight is in the law of the Lord ¨ and they meditate on his law day and night.
3 Like a tree planted by streams of water bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither, ¨ whatever they do, it shall prosper.
4 As for the wicked, it is not so with them; ¨ they are like chaff which the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked shall not be able to stand in the judgement, ¨ nor the sinner in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, ¨ but the way of the wicked shall perish.
