November, Remembering our Dead.

During this month as we recall with love the memories of dear ones who have gone before us, we ask the   living God to grace us with an awareness of how blessed we are:

Blessed with their wisdom that guided us

Blessed with their courage that lifted us

Blessed with their generosity that filled us 

Blessed with their love that formed us.


Gracious God may we in turn not be slow to share the blessings we have received and may we live confidently trusting that in you, life is changed and never taken away.


Remember Lord, those who have died and have gone before us, marked with the sign of faith, and especially those for whom we now pray. May these and all who sleep in Christ, find in your presence light happiness and peace
