  Prayers For the Dead
 

FOR ALL INTERRED AT ST. JOSEPH CEMETERY

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 then into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Amen.

FOR THE BISHOPS OF MANCHESTER INTERRED AT ST. JOSEPH CEMETERY

Almighty and merciful God, eternal Shepherd of your people, listen to our prayers and grant that your servants Ernest and Leo, to whom you entrusted the care of this Church, may enter the joy of their eternal Master, there to receive the rich reward of their labors.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

FOR THE PRIESTS INTERRED AT ST. JOSEPH CEMETERY

Lord God, you chose our brothers to serve your people as priests, and to share the joys and burdens of their lives.

Look with mercy on them and give them the rewards of their labors, the fullness of life promised to those who preach your holy Gospel.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

FOR THE RELIGIOUS SISTERS AND BROTHERS INTERRED AT ST. JOSEPH CEMETERY

God of blessings, source of all holiness, the voice of your Spirit has drawn countless men and women to follow Jesus Christ and to bind themselves to you with ready will and loving heart.

Look with mercy on the Sisters, Adorers of the Precious Blood, the Sisters of Mercy, and the Brothers of the Christian Schools who sought to fulfill their vows to you, and grant them the reward promised to all good and faithful servants.

May they rejoice in the company of the saints and with them praise you for ever.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
