“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

Sunday May 6th – SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

 

 A WARM WELCOME TO OUR VISITORS TODAY

Introduction and call to worship

Today we hear a teaching of Jesus which is easy to take for granted.  Let us pray for a fresh vision of love in the world.

 

THE COLLECT

God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:
grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,
so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;
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

 

THE READINGS FOR TODAY (Page 549/551)

First Reading                                     Acts 10:44-48

The Spirit given even to those regarded as unworthy, the Gentiles! How can Peter resist God’s obvious message?

 

Second Reading                                1 John 5:1-6

Loving and obeying God as our parent, living out our faith in his Son through baptism, witnesses to the Spirit of truth in our lives.

 

Gospel                                                  St. John 15:9-17

Jesus unequivocally confirms his relationship with the Father and its burden of responsibility, which he passes on to those who claim his friendship: to love and to give without limits.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God our Father, whose Son Jesus Christ gives the water of eternal life:
may we thirst for you, the spring of life and source of goodness,
through him who is alive and reigns, 
now and for ever.  Amen

HOME COMMUNIONS

If you know of anyone who is housebound or unwell who would like to receive their communion at home either as a one-off or on a regular basis, please contact: Fiona Giorla on 01841 532956.  Fiona is a Pastoral Care Worker and has permission from the Bishop to administer this very important part in St. Petroc’s ministry so don’t be afraid to ask.
