PRAYER FOR OUR DECEASED:
God Our Father, Your power brings us to birth, Your providence guides our lives, and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those, who die still live in Your presence, their lives change but do not end. I pray in hope for our families, relatives and friends and for all the dead know to you alone. In company with Christ, Who died and now lives, may they rejoice in Your kingdom, where all our tears are wiped away. Unite us together again in one family to sing your praise forever and ever. Amen.
May they rest in peace.
Pray for Peace and continue to pray for those
parishioners, relatives and friends of our parishioners who are actively serving in all Branches of the U.S. Military:
A Prayer for Those in the Military
Almighty God, We stand before You in supplication, asking Your Divine Mercy and protection to envelop with your invincible armor, our loved ones in all branches of the service.
Give them courage and strength against all enemies, both spiritual and physical, and hasten their safe journey back to their homes and families.
If it be Your Holy will that they be gathered to your bosom with the eternal vanguard of the saints, let their journey to Your everlasting arms be swift and painless, where they may stand in honor and glory praising You for all eternity.
