With Valentine’s Day falling just before our annual Treyarnon weekend, this year our Parish gathering focused on love.
Not the mushy, romantic love traditionally associated with February 14th, but our love for our friends, family, strangers and ourselves.
Through sharing – food, stories, songs, prayer and laughter – we were able to express our love for each other as we really got to know other members of our Parish family.
An Acts of Kindness wheel gave helpful prompts and proved popular with young and old.
After a day in smaller groups and families spent exploring Padstow, Newquay, the Camel Trail and further afield, we celebrated Mass in Padstow before returning for the long-established and very popular Treyarnon’s Got Talent featuring singing, dancing, poetry, magic, comedy and a surprise return from ‘Marion’.
Treyarnon is perfect for all ages (this year we ranged from 3 to 93). It’s a fabulous a weekend away from it all, close to the sea and beach, with kind, generous and friendly people – also known as our Parish Family.
Look out for details of next year’s trip!

BECOMING MISSIONARY DISCIPLES
Join Father Mark, members of the PPC and other parishioners on the Divine Renovation journey for a practical day looking at the future of our Parish with time for prayer, worship and reflection.
Our Parish Vision Day takes place at Our Lady & St Patrick Church in Teignmouth and starts with Mass at 10am followed by lively and interactive workshops and finishing with lunch at 2pm.
At our Vision Day we will be looking for ways to help us be better disciples and to be better able to share God’s love. The towns and villages of this Parish each have a different character, as have the churches that serve them. God has made us different. So at the Vision Day, the people of our Parish will be helped to find ways of discipleship and mission that work for them. We will work together to support one another as we develop a better idea of what needs to be done for our Parish and churches to flourish.
God loves the people in our towns and villages, so we are turning to him to discover his plans that will ensure his church has a future here.
Everyone who comes to or who has ever come to any of our churches is warmly invited to be involved.
The day is free of charge. Lunch will be provided.
You may find it useful to read ‘Divine Renovation: Bringing your Parish from Maintenance to Mission‘ by Father James Mallon before the Vision Day.

We will be running a Lent course based on the hit film, The Greatest Showman, along with other churches in the area.
Five sessions will run on either a Thursday or Friday in both the afternoon and the evening.
There will also be an opportunity to watch The Greatest Showman as a group at OLSP Primary School at 7pm on Monday 25th February so that the excerpts in the course make more sense. This would also be a lovely way to begin this period of reflection together.
Please contact the Parish Office to register your interest in the course and to let us know if you will be coming to the film night.
You will also find it helpful to read the course book: From Now On by Rachel Mann. You can order the book via the Parish Office.
