6TH AFTER TRINITY (Proper 9) – SUNDAY JULY 8th 2018  

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

INTRODUCTION

Prophets are called to speak out, to provide insight to people who do not see clearly. May we be inspired to speak out in our lives for justice and truth.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

Merciful God,  you have prepared for those who love you
such good things as pass our understanding:
Pour into our hearts such love toward you
that we, loving you in all things and above all things,
may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire;
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

 

READINGS (Proper 9 – Page 617 to 619 of Lectionary)

First Reading              Ezekiel 2:1-5

The prophet Ezekiel is aware of his weakness compared with the God who asks him to bear a message to a stubborn people, who will not wish to hear it.

 

Second Reading           2 Corinthians 12:2-10

St Paul talks of his own visionary experience and of the physical impediment which reminds him of his weakness: his prophetic ability is a God-given gift.

 

Gospel                         St. Mark 6:1-13

Jesus, the uniquely embodied Word of God, like many a prophet is neither respected nor heeded by his own people; in contrast, his disciples travel abroad seeking a response from a less-prejudiced audience.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God of our pilgrimage, you have led us to the living water:
Refresh and sustain us as we go forward on our journey,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. 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.

Coracle Appeal – We’re Off!

On Tuesday afternoon (27th) we had an excellent meeting with the contractors and the architect to dot the i’s and cross the T’s for the restoration of the tower.

We definitely start on Monday October 17th with the arrival of the scaffolding.
It will take approximately 3 weeks to completely shroud the tower in scaffolding and PINK protective sheeting – it will certainly be seen that’s for sure!!!

Work will then begin in earnest so please will you do all you can to avoid using the church car park in the week and as little as possible on Sundays as the contractors will be using up to half of the car park for storage and materials and there will be various clubs using the Church Rooms.

PLEASE can you try to car share during the works or even use the top car park to alleviate parking problems on our car park. PLEASE do not park out on the road if you don’t have a blue badge as you may be pinched.

We will be taking photos of the work as it progresses and putting them on our church website and also having an ongoing display in church. Sincere apologies in advance but I’m sure it will all be worth it in the end. Thanks for your help and consideration folks. PLEASE BE PATIENT.
Fr. Chris.

THE CORACLE APPEAL-The best news possible

WE’VE MADE IT – We have received the “Permission to start” letter from
Heritage Lottery Fund confirming that we have been awarded £175,000 towards the restoration and repairs to the tower. ALLELUIA!!!!
The original “questimate” some 10 years ago was £125,000 and as time has gone on and the problems looked into more deeply the final figure was a whopping £370,000. It is only through the generosity of YOU – the amazing people of Padstow and beyond; a generous legacy from dear Barry Kinsmen (£120,000) and a donation of from the Catholic community of Padstow (50,000) that we have been able to fund the work putting £200,000 into the pot.
We hope to have the scaffolding up by the end of October and then the whole tower will be shrouded with protective sheeting to allow the contractors to keep working even in the bad weather. We think that the work will be completed around Easter.
We are so very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for awarding the £175,000 as it means we can press on and get the work done as soon as possible. Everything is in place – contractors, work schedules, scaffolders – all waiting for the “Permission to start” letter. The slight downside is that we will not be allowed to ring the bells or have the clock chiming which is a shame but necessary. We offer our thanks to the bellringers for being so understanding and for their offer to prepare the bells by removing the ropes and ssealing the ringing room to prevent dust ingress into the church.
How many Garden parties, Dog shows, coffee mornings etc., etc., etc., would we have had to had to raise £175,000? Thank you Heritage Lottery Fund and thanks to everyone who does the National Lottery.
We can now do the final job of our 10 year restoration Programme.
Fr. Chris
