Remembering our Dead

One of the greatest signs of love is remembrance. We set time aside during November to remember and pray for our brothers and sisters who have died. We pray that they have passed from death to life in the company of the Risen Christ, the firstborn from the dead, whose love has overcome all things.

Masses are offered throughout the year for those whose names are inscribed on the Altar List of the Dead. Envelopes are at the church entrances and may be left in the sacristy or the box near Our Lady’s Altar.

“It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead”

November dead

O Lord, we praise and thank you for the gift of our loved ones who have died and whom we remember during this month of November.
We thank you, compassionate God, for walking with us in all the dark moments of our grief and loneliness. Even when we find it hard to see you, we know and trust that you walk beside us and, in the Resurrection of Christ, Your Son, the victory of love in Jesus Our Lord, you give us a reason for living, a reason for hoping.
Lord, continue to be a light for us, giving us direction and courage in this difficult time. Help us to bring light and hope to others. Amen.

Pilgrim God, we give you thanks and praise.
You constantly journey with us even in our darkness and doubts.
We seek your way of loving kindness to walk together as one family.
Open our eyes to recognise you in the faces of one another,
in the breaking of bread and in the splendour of creation.
May the risen Christ sow seeds of hope and new life deep within us.
May our hearts and minds be filled with your Word, bringing forth truth, justice and peace.
May the Holy Spirit working in and through us do much more
than we can dare to imagine as we live out our baptismal calling in humble and loving service.
We make this our prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.
St Laurence O’Toole, pray for us.
St Kevin, pray for us.
