The Commemoration of All The Faithful Departed falls on November 2nd each year, All Souls’ Day. In a spirit of hope, commend the souls of those who have died to the loving care of God through this prayer for the dead.
Into your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love;
deliver them now from every evil
and bid them enter eternal rest.
The old order has passed away;
welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow,
no weeping nor pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
for ever and ever.
