Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Posted on 09/08/2022

Together with people across Canada, and around the world, we mourn the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the constitutional monarch of Canada. We give thanks for her long life of service and leadership, and for her lived witness of Christian faith. May God welcome her to eternal life, and may all those who grieve her death be comforted.

Please join us in prayer:

Let us pray.

God, source of every title, honour and position of power,
we thank you for the long life of Queen Elizabeth II,
the Queen of Canada and of the Commonwealth.

We thank you for the way she led us with dignity and faith,
and for all the good that she did during her 96-year-long life.

As we entrust her now to your loving mercy,
we pray for her family members, 

and for all those around the world who grieve her passing.

May we find inspiration in her example,
and may we always work together as members of your family,
to serve Jesus our King,
whom Queen Elizabeth strove to serve in her role as monarch.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.

May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.


Love righteousness, you rulers of the earth,

think of the Lord in goodness

and seek him with sincerity of heart. - Wisdom 1:1
