In Loving Memory

Almighty God, through the death of your Son on the cross, you have overcome death for us. Through his burial and resurrection from the dead, you have made the grave a holy place and restored us to eternal life. We pray for those in our St. Thomas More family who have died and live now with Christ in the joy of heaven. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
