“Weekly News” for the Parishes of Padstow,
St. Merryn and St. Issey with St. Petroc Minor
February 12th 2017 – THIRD SUNDAY BEFORE LENT
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.
The Mosaic Law gave us the 10 commandments. Jesus gives his explanation of how to live. He gives us our “Rule of Life”
Almighty God, who alone can bring order to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity: Give your people grace so to love what you command and to desire what you promise, that, among the many changes of this world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; 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 Deuteronomy 30: 15 – end
God gives the way to live so that the Jewish people will be blessed by the Lord their God – the Way of life. The alternative is the way of death.
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 3: 1-9
Paul rebukes party-spirit in the church; for it has only one foundation, Jesus Christ himself.
Gospel St. Matthew 5: 21 – 37
Jesus continues the “Sermon on the Mount”, teaching the inner meaning of the Ten Commandments
Merciful Father, who gave Jesus Christ to be for us the bread of life, that those who come to him should never hunger:
Draw us to the Lord in faith and love, that we may eat and drink with him at his table in the kingdom, where he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen

Message sent by Shirley Craft (Police, Community Messaging Officer, Devon & Cornwall) TELEPHONE SCAM
Residents are asked to exercise caution when receiving calls purported to be from your or another Bank: Police received a report of a member of the public being phoned by a Bank to report £400 had been stolen from their account. The caller stated they would receive £400 on top of the recovered monies providing they first withdrew £2000 and purchased £2000 of iTUNE Gift Cards. The caller even told them to tell shop or bank staff “It’s presents for the grandchildren” They were told another person would call back requesting the serial numbers of the iTUNE cards and also to scratch off the foil on the rear to reveal a smaller number. Both sets of numbers would then allow the caller to purchase goods to the value of £2000. The phone number used was 01424758899, which is registered to Hastings in Sussex, both the callers were described as female and very polite and convincing. We would ask Recipients of Community Messaging to tell your more elderly and vulnerable neighbours about this message Report any similar incidents to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, or online at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk Thank you
