Commemoration of the Faithful Departed (All Souls)
November 2 – Commemoration of the Faithful Departed (All Souls) –
Eternal God, our maker and redeemer, grant us, with all the faithful departed, the sure benefits of your Son’s saving passion and glorious resurrection that, in the last day, when you gather up all things in Christ, we may with them enjoy the fullness of your promises; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. ~A Collect for the Day.
On this day the Office of the Dead is prayed at all offices.
