All Saints and All Souls Service Sunday October 31, 2021
Celebrant: Remembering, with the Lighting of Candles at the foot of the altar, the souls of the faithful departed in Christ from our parish family in the last year and a half, and loved ones from within our families and circles of friends, dear to us.
Collect for All Souls p.429 (B.A.S.)
Father of all,
We pray to you for those we love, but see no longer.
Grant them your peace,
Let light perpetual shine upon them,
And in your loving wisdom and almighty power,
Work in them the good purpose of your perfect will;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and for ever. Amen.
Prayer for Ourselves
O God, whose days are without end and whose mercies cannot be
numbered: make us, we pray, deeply aware of the shortness and
uncertainty of human life, and let your Holy Spirit lead us in
Holiness and righteous all our days; that when we shall have
served you in our generation, we may be gathered to our
ancestors, having the testimony of a good conscience, in the
communion of the catholic Church, in the confidence of a certain
faith, in the comfort of a religious and holy hope, in favour with you,
our God, and in perfect charity with all. We ask this through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
