November – a Month of Remembrance

November – a Month of Remembrance

November is the month of remembrance.  You are invited to write the names of your deceased loved ones in our parish Book of Remembrance which is located at the side of the altar, at the base of the stairs to the statue of Our Blessed Mother.  The book will remain there throughout the month of November, when we pray in a special way for our faithful departed.

God, our Father,
in your abundant generosity,
hear our prayer for our loved ones
who have passed away.
In your abundant mercy,
forgive their failings.
In your loving kindness,
bring them safely to their heavenly home,
to rejoice in the glory of your presence,
and to find their eternal rest in you.
Amen.
