Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

Remembering our Deceased Brothers and Sisters of the Order

Our Holy Mother Church has the practice of associating the feast of All Saints with that of All Souls during the month of November to emphasize the fundamental truth of the communion of Saints.

Our Dominican Order also has the custom of celebrating the feast of All Dominican Saints on November 7th, followed by a day of prayer on November 8th for all our deceased Brothers and Sisters in the Order who have gone before us.

May they enjoy eternal rest with the Lord!

God of all consolation,
You call us all to the same wondrous hope.
We pray for our deceased brothers and sisters.
You loved them in this life with an ineffable love,
And granted them the privilege of serving you
with apostolic charity in the preaching of the Gospel.
Receive them kindly into your peace and your joy.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
