                SUNDAY MARCH 31ST : The Fourth Sunday of Lent

           Mothering Sunday

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take

our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

Introduction

On Mothering Sunday we give thanks to God for our own mothers and those who have cared for us, for Mother Church and for God’s loving parenthood.

 

THE COLLECT

God of compassion, whose Son Jesus Christ, the child of Mary,
shared the life of a home in Nazareth, and on the cross drew the whole human family to himself: strengthen us in our daily living that in joy and in sorrow we may know the power of your presence to bind together and to heal; 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

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Loving God, as a mother feeds her children at the breast you feed us in this sacrament with the food and drink of eternal life: help us who have tasted your goodness to grow in grace within the household of faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS(Page 830-833)

 

First Reading                         Exodus 2:1–10           

God used three women’s gifts to save Moses: his mother’s faith, his sister’s intelligence and the compassion of Pharaoh’s daughter. He can use our gifts, too.

 

Second Reading                   Colossians 3: 12-17

We all know that love should be the hallmark of Christian living. Here,

Paul tells us what that love is to be like in practice.

 

 

Gospel                                    St. John 19:25-27

In his dying moments, Jesus fulfils his family responsibilities by providing for

the welfare of his mother.

 

New PCCs at Padstow and St Merryn

 Thanks to all who contributed to the Annual Church Meetings at Padstow and St Merryn last week. We welcome new Churchwardens in both parishes, Janet Dawe at Padstow and Gill Watts at St Merryn, and thank Linda Morey for her service as Churchwarden at Padstow. We also welcome new members of the PCC in both parishes and thank those who have retired this year. Members of the Deanery Synod are elected for three years and there will be new elections next year. This year Gerry Chandler of St Merryn resigned from Deanery Synod and was replaced by Clifford Allison who also becomes an ex officio member of the St Merryn PCC. We thank Gerry for many years of work on various committees.

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take

our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

Introduction

We pray that our presence here today and all our other actions, may prove our intention to follow Jesus day by day, and will be found pleasing to God.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy

but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
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

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Merciful Lord, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations

of the world, the flesh and the devil,
and with pure hearts and minds to follow you, the only God;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS(Page 823/825)

First Reading                         Isaiah 55: 1-9

Accidents are not sent by God as punishment but he does invite us to seek him without delay. He gives freely and abundantly to all who act upon his call and trust his promises.

 

Second Reading                                 1 Corinthians 10: 1-13

We are not pre-Christians, with excuses for wrongdoing. We have Christ’s

example as proof of God’s absolute love. We are not tested beyond our

endurance but we ignore him at our peril!

 

Gospel                                                St. Luke 13: 1-9

Every day the peoples of earth face potential disaster, as individuals or

nations.  We need to get our relationship with God right in order to cope.

Christ is our answer.

SUNDAY MARCH 17th: The Second Sunday of Lent

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take

our love and prayers to your home parish.

 Introduction

By God’s presence and power, we have been made citizens of God’s heavenly Kingdom. Let us worship the living God, whose life amongst us moves us to hear and heed his words, and draws us closer to home in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

 THE COLLECT

Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of righteousness:
grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;
through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Almighty God, you see that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves: keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 820-822)

 

First Reading                         Genesis 15. 1-12, 17-18

We are to know ourselves as citizens not of earthly political kingdoms, but of

the heavenly kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel                                    St. Luke 13. 31-35

Jesus Christ, Prophet and King, uses feminine language to show he is present to us just as the wings of a mother hen are home for her brood.

                   SUNDAY MARCH 10th : The First Sunday of Lent

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take

our love and prayers to your home parish.

 

Introduction

In Lent we renew our desire to fulfil God’s purposes. Let us turn to God in prayer and repent of the same human pride which crucified our Lord.

 

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness,
and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit;
and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save;
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 .

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God, you have renewed us with the living bread from heaven;
by it you nourish our faith, increase our hope, and strengthen our love:
teach us always to hunger for him who is the true and living bread,
and enable us to live by every word that proceeds from out of your mouth;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 816/819)

First Reading                          Deuteronomy 26.1-11

The ancient Israelites regularly reminded themselves of the relationship

between themselves and a loving, generous God, who had chosen to make

himself known to them. A recital of his past saving acts acknowledged that

they were constantly in his debt and must give him praise and honour.

 

Second Reading                                 Romans 10.8b-13

St Paul stresses the continuity of the new revelation of God in Christ with the

covenant described in the Old Testament. Yet salvation has now become

available to all who confess their faith in the God who gives life and

overcomes death.

 

Gospel                                                St. Luke 4.1-13

The human Jesus had to resist the chance to see himself as more powerful

than God: in the desert places of the Christian year, especially Lent, we must

also learn to resist, recognising the true nature of temptation.

There is also a need for more Servers in the Church for the Sunday and mid-week Eucharists.   Linda Morey is retiring from being our Sacristan after several years of loyal service, if this or any of the above jobs are of  interest to you and you would like more information of what the job entails then please talk to Linda, Fr Stephen, or Sue.

Get Well wishes – We send our prayers and get well wishes to Wyn May for a speedy recovery after her recent accident.

 

VACANCIES PADSTOW PCC – There is a vacancy for the post of  Churchwarden for Padstow, also 3 vacancies to serve on the PCC to represent Padstow and 1 vacancy to serve on the PCC to represent Trevone.
