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.

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

Under the Church Representation Rules between Sunday March 25th and Sunday April 8th, inclusive we have our annual revision of the Electoral Roll.  Please contact our Electoral Roll Officer, Mrs Kathy Qwinell (540636) 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.
