November – Month of Remembrance

Standard

November is the month when, by tradition, we pray for the eternal rest of our deceased relatives and friends.  This year, in all our churches, we remember especially those who have died during the pandemic.  We also pray for those who have lost someone they loved, for those who were unable to say goodbye, and for those who are suffering the pain of grief.  We pray for confidence in the loving mercy of God, for faith in the Resurrection to new life, and for the hope of being reunited in God’s kingdom.
