FEAST OF ST. MARY MAGDALENE – SUNDAY JULY 22nd 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Introduction and call to worship
“See, I am making all things new”. We see the divine promise fulfilled in the experience of St. Mary Magdalene. We, too, can find newness through Christ. Let us seek it through Word and Sacrament.
whose Son restored Mary Magdalene to health of mind and body
and called her to be a witness to his resurrection:
forgive our sins and heal us by your grace,
that we may serve you in the power of his risen life;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
THE READINGS (Page 1158 – 1160)
First Reading Song of Solomon 3:1-4
The one who loves ardently pursues her beloved. Her determination is rewarded. She finds him and clings to him, foreshadowing the behaviour of Mary of Magdala.
Second Reading 2 Corinthians 5: 14-17
Paul teaches of the “new life” found by knowing Our Lord Jesus Christ
Gospel St. John 20:1-2,11-18
“Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven”. Mary Magdalene gets her reward.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
God of life and love, whose risen Son called Mary Magdalene by name
and sent her to tell of his resurrection to his apostles:
in your mercy, help us, who have been united with him in this Eucharist, to proclaim the good news that he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen
THE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY COLLECTION BOXES
Please will holders of boxes bring them to any service at the Parish Church this month, when they will be kept in the vestry until I can take them away for emptying, so that the proceeds can be sent to the Society. When emptied and re-labelled, I will return them to the back of the church for collecting by their holders. I shall be glad of people’s telephone numbers, the records of some of which are now wrong; also, if anyone cannot get to church, please ring me to arrange for it to be fetched.
