Elementary: 

We begin our prayers today in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.​

Today is Halloween or All Hallows Eve.  This means that it is the day before All Saints Day, as day in which we celebrate all the saints in heaven and ask them to pray for us.

It is a special day for fun and festivities that celebrate Jesus victory over death and the triumph of light and over darkness and emptiness. Let us reflect on ways in which we can bring Jesus into our lives this weekend.

Let us listen to God's word.

A reading from the Letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians (Eph 2: 19b-22)

You are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.

The word of the Lord. - Thanks be to God

God created you and me to live with Him forever. Who are the friends and family members now passed on, that you wish to remember on this All Hallows Eve?

Let us bring them to God as we pray the prayer that Jesus taught us:

Our Father...

Dear God, you created me to know, love and serve you in this life, and to be with you forever in the life to come. I pray for all my deceased family members, friends and for all who have no one to pray for them. In your great love, bring them into the fullness of your heavenly presence.

We make this prayer to you in Jesus' name. Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

A Classic for All Hallows Eve
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
