THE COLLECT FOR EASTER SUNDAY
Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new to him:
Grant that we being dead to sin
and alive with you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise honour and glory and might,
now and in all eternity. Amen.
READINGS AS PER THE BOOKLET
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
God of Life,
who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son
to the death of the cross
and by his glorious resurrection
have delivered us from the power of our enemy:
Grant us so to die daily to sin,
that we may evermore live with him
in the joy of his risen life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

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.
