We pray for those departed this life and all who mourn their loss;
Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace (Amen)
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
During this month of November, we pray especially for the bereaved, whether their loss was recent or many years ago, that in this month of remembrance they may find healing and peace.
Lord in your mercy
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Angel of God, my Guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day (or night) be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

O God our heavenly Father,
look mercifully upon the unrest in our world
and draw all people to yourself and one another
in the sure bond of peace.
We give you ready thanks
for the memory of all those men and women
who laid down their lives
in the service of their country.
As we hallow their memory
we bless you for their courage and devotion,
even unto death.
In your mercy
send your peace into the hearts of all people
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Prayer by Denis McBride C.Ss.R.
God has given you many gifts, like peace and hope and joy. But the greatest gift, is Jesus the Lord. You will be receiving God’s greatest gift in the sacrament of the Eucharistyour First Holy Communion. You’ll find out more about yourself, the world around you and the people in it. And most importantly you’ll learn how to become a special friend of Jesus.

Originally a small hamlet, Sowerby Bridge in Saxon times, had a little church called St Peters (at the top of the hill), which was, of course, before the Reformation, Roman Catholic. Just before this, in 1526, during the reign of Henry VIII, a new church was built on the banks of the River Calder, but ten years later, when Henry split from Rome, this church became Anglican.
