SUNDAY JUNE 2ND  Seventh Sunday of Easter &

Patronal Feast of St. Petroc

          A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.

 THE COLLECTS

O God the King of Glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: we beseech you, leave us not comfortless, but send your Holy Spirit to strengthen us and exalt us to the place where our Saviour Christ is gone before, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 Almighty God, who sent your servant Petroc to build up your Church in Cornwall; grant that we may labour faithfully to build on the same foundation, even 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

POST-COMMUNION PRAYERS

 Eternal God, giver of love and power, your Son Jesus Christ has sent us into all the world to preach the gospel of his kingdom: confirm us in this mission, and help us to live the good news we proclaim; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 Merciful God, who gave such grace to your servant Petroc that he served you with singleness of heart and loved you above all things; help us whose communion with you has been renewed in this sacrament, to forsake all that holds us back from following Christ and to grow into his likeness from glory to glory; through Christ our Lord. Amen

THE READINGS FOR ST PETROC’S DAY

ST PETROC’S DAY

Today is the nearest Sunday to St Petroc’s Day, 4th June. St Petroc came from Wales to Cornwall in the sixth century, landing in the Camel Estuary. He preached the gospel here, founded a monastery in Padstow and another at Little Petherick and it is said that his cousin St Issey founded a nunnery nearby. He converted a local landowner called Constantine and sent him to live as a hermit near Trevose Head in St Merryn Parish. Petroc is one of the greatest of Cornish Saints and in our churches we stand in an unbroken line of communities of faith from his time – we remember his witness and those of our other saints with gratitude. May they be in inspiration to us.
