Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come; and thy will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses

 as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen


Immortal God, holy Lord,

Father and Protector of all You have created,

we raise our hearts to You today for those

who have passed out of this mortal life.


In Your loving mercy, Father of all,

be pleased to receive them in Your heavenly company,

and forgive the failings and faults

they may have done from human frailty.


Your only Son, Christ, our Saviour,

suffered so cruelly that

He might deliver them from the second death.

By his merits may they share in the glory

of His victory over sin and death.


For all the faithful who have died we pray,

but in particular for those dear to us,

parents, relatives and friends.

nor do we forget all who did good to us while on earth,

who helped us by their prayers, sacrifice and example.

We pray also for any who may have done us harm,

and stand in special need to Your forgiveness.


May the merits and prayers of our Virgin Mother,

Mary, and those of all the Angels and Saints,

speak for us and assist them now.

This we ask in Christ’s name.
