Readings for Sunday 5th June, 2022 , The Day of Pentecost
First reading: Acts 2.1-21
Psalm 104.24-35b
Second reading: Romans 8.14-17
Gospel: John 14.8-17
Psalm 47, refrain
“Send forth your Spirit, O God, and renew the face of the Earth”

Sunday services. The diocese has lifted all Covid restrictions, so now it is no longer mandatory
for you to wear a mask for the 10.00 am service, although this is always a personal choice and
recommended, and hand sanitizing and social distancing where possible are sensible precautions.
The diocese leaves it up to individual parishes to decide what rules they wish to apply.
For the month of June masks will still be required at the 8.30 am service at St. Jude’s, and after
that the situation will be reconsidered.
The Common Cup can now be offered at Communion, but reception of this is optional, and
receiving just the Bread still constitutes a full Communion.
Perhaps an after service social time can now be arranged – coffee or maybe lemonade outside??
The 10.00 am service will be live streamed and recorded for the website, YouTube and
Facebook page. Here is the link for the live stream:
The live stream for last Sunday, 26th May, did not seem to be reliable, so here is a link for the
recording: . Technical issues are still being investigated.

Rest in Peace

Terry Turkey (partner of Tim Gibbons) and Peter Conway (Cursillo member spouse of Audrey)
May the souls of our siblings in Christ, Terry and Peter, find rest eternal and rise in glory in the
presence of our creator. Pray for Tim, Audrey’s family and friends to find strength and comfort
as they mourn.

We give thanks

For the ministry of Matt who will be with us at St Jude’s, providing liturgy and pastoral
support during June, July and August. We are blessed to have this very spiritual and
knowledgeable priest to lead us during this time. Thanks be to God.

We give thanks

For the results of Glenda’s CT scan; things are moving in the right direction.

We pray for

Our priest Bill as he starts his sabbatical followed by vacation (June, July and August). May
this time of rest bring renewal and energy for moving forward with his life and calling.

We pray for

Bishop Todd as he shepherds our Diocese through multiple changes. May Holy Spirit guide
both Bill and Todd during this time of transition and moving forward.

We pray for

All those who have let their names stand in the Provincial election. May they become the
servant leaders that our democracy needs during a time of divisive paths, looking to the needs of
all citizens and not the few, looking at the environment as an important and worthy part of the
whole and not to be abused or taken for granted.

We pray for

The people and lands of Ukraine as they endure constant shelling and bombardments, with
loss of lives, livelihoods, homes and well-being. May Ukrainians be like David and have the
support and resilience to slay the Russian Goliath so Ukraine may have democracy and
dominion and peace in their own country and begin to rebuild.

We pray for

All those who have been impacted by mass shootings and violent acts. The victims present
and past who have gone to their eternal rest, may light perpetual shine upon them. Those who
have lived through these horrendous events and relive them with each reoccurrence, and for
those who love and support all the victims. May they have the resilience, strength and support
needed to find comfort and healing.
