COLLECT FOR PALM SUNDAY

Almighty and everlasting God,

who in your tender love towards the human race

sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ

to take upon him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross:

grant that we may follow the example

of his patience and humility,

and also be made partakers of his resurrection;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

THE POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ,

you humbled yourself in taking the form of a servant,
and in obedience died on the cross for our salvation:
give us the mind to follow you

and to proclaim you as Lord and King,
to the glory of God the Father.  Amen

THE CHURCH ELECTORIAL ROLL ST. ISSEY AND ST. PETROC MINOR

Under the Church Representation Rules between Sunday March 25th and Sunday April 8th we have our annual revision of the Electoral Roll.  Please contact our Electoral Roll Officer, Mrs Jean Booth (533397) at St. Issey.  Please ask for a form to complete if you would like your name on the Roll.  If your name is on the Roll you are a “member” of the Anglican Parish of St. Issey.  Being on the Roll entitles you to vote at the Annual Parochial Meeting on April 24th and serve of the P.C.C. if elected.  This is also the time to check that your name is on the Roll or to ask for it to be removed if that is your wish. We have to have an accurate Roll for the Annual Meeting.

                                

 PADSTOW APCM  APRIL 11TH 2018 – This will take place in the Church Rooms commencing with the vestry meeting at 7.00 p.m. for the election of Churchwardens followed by the APCM at 7.30 p.m.

Churchwardens are elected on a yearly basis.  If you would like to stand as a Churchwarden please fill in the forms that you will find at the back on the churchwarden’s chest.  We have 3 representatives from Padstow and 1 from Trevone, who retire this year.  If you would like to stand as a PCC member, there are forms at the back of the church.  You must be on the Electoral Roll to qualify.  Please hand to the administrator.

Our thanks to Janine Ogborne, Alan Veck, Tim Bishop and Fiona Giorla for their dedication and hard work to the Parish of Padstow and its churches.
