PRAYER FOR OUR RECENTLY DEPARTED
God of mercies, into your hands we commend our brothers and sisters:
+ Griselda Arenas
+ Bishop David G. O'Connell
We give thanks for the blessings which you bestowed upon them in this life.
Open to them the gates of heaven, and help us to comfort one another, and to carry on the good work that we share, until we all meet in Christ in your loving presence.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
