Newsletter – 9 October 2016

“Weekly News” for the Parishes of Padstow,
St. Merryn and St. Issey with St. Petroc Minor
October 9th 2016 – 20th After Trinity

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

Jesus Christ sees the things which unite us. He sweeps away those things which separate us from him and from one another, he heals us and makes us whole.

God, the giver of life, whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church:
by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ
and make us eager to do your will,
that we may share with the whole creation the joys of eternal life;
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

First Reading 2 Kings 5:1-3 and 7-15b
Elisha, with God’s power working in him, heals Namaan of his leprosy, a disease which otherwise would isolate even this powerful man from other folk.

Second Reading 2 Timothy 2: 8-15
Paul, in prison and confined by chains, stresses to Timothy, that the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ must not be confined.

Gospel St. Luke 17: 11-19
St. Luke makes clear that Jesus heals divisions as well as disease; he sweeps away what separates and divides, in order to make us whole.

God our Father, whose Son, the light unfailing,
has come from heaven to deliver the world from the darkness of ignorance:
let these holy mysteries open the eyes of our understanding
that we may know the way of life, and walk in it without stumbling;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Psalm for today 111
1 Alleluia. I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the faithful and in the congregation.
2 The works of the Lord are great, sought out by all who delight in them.
3 His work is full of majesty and honour and his righteousness endures for ever.
4 He appointed a memorial for his marvellous deeds; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
5 He gave food to those who feared him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.
6 He showed his people the power of his works in giving them the heritage of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are truth and justice; all his commandments are sure.
8 They stand fast for ever and ever; they are done in truth and equity.
9 He sent redemption to his people; he commanded his covenant for ever; holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have those who live by it; his praise endures for ever.

REMINDER…if you are part of the cleaning team for St. Saviour’s Trevone could you please do it sometime between Monday 10th October and Saturday 15th October. Thank you.

The brass cleaning rota has worked extremely well in Padstow now for the past two years and thank you to all of you who help keep our brass shining throughout the year. For next year could you please confirm that you are happy to carry on with the brass cleaning. I am looking to replace Sheila and Marjorie who after a long time of shining are stepping down, thank you both for all that you have done for St. Petroc’s. So if you could spare some time next year to help then please contact me and let me know. Thank you.

On Tuesday afternoon (27th) we had an excellent meeting with the contractors and the architect to dot the I’s and cross the T’s for the restoration of the tower.
We definitely start on Monday October 17th with the arrival of the scaffolding.
It will take approximately 3 weeks to completely shroud the tower in scaffolding and PINK protective sheeting – it will certainly be seen that’s for sure!!!
Work will then begin in earnest so please will you do all you can to avoid using the church car park in the week and as little as possible on Sundays as the contractors will be using up to half of the car park for storage and materials and there will be various clubs using the Church Rooms.
PLEASE can you try to car share during the works or even use the top car park to alleviate parking problems on our car park. PLEASE do not park out on the road if you don’t have a blue badge as you may be pinched.
We will be taking photos of the work as it progresses and putting them on our church website and also having an ongoing display in church.
Sincere apologies in advance but I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end.
Thanks for your help and consideration folks. PLEASE BE PATIENT.
Fr. Chris.
