“The Owl” - Chaplaincy NEWSLETTER
28th May 2023 - Pentecost
If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them;
if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.
John 20, verse 23.
Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite us with your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith, revive your church
with the breath of love, and renew the face of the earth, through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Call to Worship
The Holy Spirit, promised by Jesus, is poured out upon the first disciples at Pentecost. The Spirit, the energy of God, enables them – and enables us – to go out and share the good news of God’s deeds in Jesus Christ with the whole world.

First Reading Acts 2:1-21 The Holy Spirit gives new power to the disciples, enabling them to share the good news of Christ with an international audience.
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 12:3b-13
The Holy Spirit is the giver of gifts, which, although many and varied, are given by God for the building up of the Body of Christ.
Gospel John 20:19-23
God the creator brought Adam to life by breathing into his nostrils. Now Jesus breathes new life into the disciples, giving them the Holy Spirit.
Introduction to the Peace

Post Communion Prayer
Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and live and reign in the perfect unity of love: hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory, who are three Persons yet one God, now and for ever. Amen
May the Spirit of God, who breathed courage into the hearts of Jesus’ disciples, fill your lives with hope, vitality, and power to share the words and works of God. And the blessing of God almighty…
The next PCC meeting on Wednesday 7th June 10.30am at Miraflores. The church reps will ask congregations this Sunday if they would like anything bringing up for discussion.
Just a Thought
Let your life as a Christian make non believers question their disbelief in God, and remember, it takes the same amount of energy to believe as it does to worry.
Prayer for the week
All mighty God, your ascended Son has sent us into the world to preach the good news of your kingdom; inspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your love, that all who hear your Word, may be drawn to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Some of you will have already heard Terry Read, a member of the congregation in Mojacar for many years, died on Monday in England. His family are having his body cremated and his ashes will be returned to Mojacar for internment as he wished. Rest in peace, Terry.
