Almighty God, you have knit together your elect
in one communion and fellowship
in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord:
grant us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living
that we may come to those inexpressible joys
that you have prepared for those who truly love you;
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.

God, the source of all holiness and giver of all good things:

ST. PETROC’S NEWS MAGAZINE – The following comes from our forthcoming November issue of the Parish Magazine.
It is with great sadness that after the next issue of the magazine, that our Editor Chris Greaves will be stepping down from his post. We are so indebted to Chris for his years of hard work, dedication and the numerous hours that he has given to producing the magazine over many, many years.
Chris we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to you from St. Petroc’s, for all your hard work. We have been so very, very lucky to have had your dedication and commitment in producing this magazine.
So now we are looking for a new Editor to produce the magazine and also for an organiser to manage the distribution to all those stalwarts who go out in all weathers to distribute the magazine.
We are also very grateful to Geoff Spear who manages all the advertising and will continue to do this job. If you feel this is something that you could do or would like more information about, contact Sue Norfolk at the Benefice Office on 01841 532902 or email email@example.com
