Book of the Names of the Dead

The Church has a long tradition of remembering those who have died, to the love and mercy of God.  We do this in a special way on the Feast of All Souls Day, and throughout November.  In many churches around the world, there is a Book of the Names of the Dead, as a continuing reminder of our prayer.  We offer this online Book of the Names of the Dead, so that we might be in solidarity around the world in prayer for our loved ones.

Please email us the names you wish to inscribe in this online book for our prayer during the month of November both by the Creighton community and by our global online community.

We remember those who have gone before us during this Year of Faith.
Check the resources

If you have names to inscribe, please e-mail them to

May this site remind us of our faith in our life-giving baptism into the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Eternal Life grant to them, O Lord.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

hear our prayers and console us.

As we renew our faith in your Son,
whom you raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope
that all our departed
brothers and sisters
will share in this resurrection,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

- Opening Prayer for the Commemoration of
all the Faithful Departed
November 2nd

Don't you know that all who share in Christ Jesus by being baptized also share in his death?  When we were baptized, we died and were buried with Christ.  We were baptized, so that we would live a new life, as Christ was raised to life by the glory of God the Father.

If we shared in Jesus' death by being baptized, we will be raised to life with him.  We know that the persons we used to be were nailed to the cross with Jesus.  This was done, so that our sinful bodies would no longer be the slaves of sin.  We know that sin doesn't have power over dead people.

As surely as we died with Christ, we believe we will also live with him.  We know that death no longer has any power over Christ.  He died and was raised to life, never again to die.  When Christ died, he died for sin once for all.  But now he is alive, and he lives only for God.  In the same way, you must think of yourselves as dead to the power of sin.  But Christ Jesus has given life to you, and you live for God.

- Romans 6:2-11

I know that my Redeemer lives
and on the last day I shall rise again.

  + In my body I shall look on
     God, my Savior.

I myself shall see him;
my own eyes will gaze on him.

  + In my body I shall look on
     God, my Savior.

Job 19:25-27

Psalm 27

You, Lord, are the light that keeps me safe.
I am not afraid of anyone.
You protect me,
and I have no fears.
Brutal people may attack
and try to kill me,
but they will stumble.
Fierce enemies may attack,
but they will fall.
Armies may surround me,
but I won't be afraid;
war may break out,
but I will trust you.

I ask only one thing, Lord:
Let me live in your house
every day of my life
to see how wonderful you are
and to pray in your temple.

In times of trouble
you will protect me.
You will hide me in your tent
and keep me safe
on top of a mighty rock.

You will let me defeat 
all my enemies.
Then I will celebrate,
as I enter your tent 
with animal sacrifieces
and songs of praise.

Please listen when I pray!
Have pity.
Answer my prayer.
My heart tells me to pray.
I am eager to see your face
so don't hide from me.
I am your servant,
and you have helped me.
Don't turn from me in anger.
You alone keep me safe.
Don't reject or desert me.
Even if my father and mother
should desert me,
you will take care of me.

Teach me to follow, Lord,
and lead me on the right path
because of my enemies.

Don't let them do to me
what they want.
People tell lies about me
and make terrible threats,
but I know I will live
to see how kind you are.

Trust in the Lord!
Be brave and strong
and trust the Lord.

God our Creator and Redeemer,
by your power
Christ conquored death
and returned to you in glory.

May all your people
who have gone before us in faith
share his victory
and enjoy the vision
of your glory forever,
where Christ lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

My friends, I want you to know that our bodies of flesh and blood will decay.  This means that they cannot share in God's kingdom, which lasts forever. I will explain a mystery to you.  Not every one of us will die, but we will all be changed.  It will happen suddenly, quicker than the blink of an eye.  At the sound of the last trumpet the dead will be raised.  We will all be changed, so that we will never die again.  Our dead and decaying bodies will be changed into bodies that won't die or decay.  The bodies we now have are weak and can die, but they will be changed into bodies that are eternal.  Then the Scriptures will come true,

"Death has lost the battle!
Where is its victory?
Where is its sting?"

Sin is what gives death its sting, and the Law is the power behind sin.  But thank God for letting our Lord Jesus Christ give us the victory!

My dear friends, stand firm and don't be shaken.  Always keep busy working for the Lord.  You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile.

- 1 Corinthians 15:50-58

We acknowledge Christ the Lord
through whom we hope that our
lowly bodies will be made 
like his in glory,
and we say:

Lord, you are our life and resurrection.

Christ, Son of the living God,
who raised up Lazarus,
your friend, from the dead,

 + raise up to life and glory
   the dead whom you have
   redeemed by your precious

Christ, consoler of those
who mourn,
you dried the tears of
the family of Lazarus,
of the widow's son,
and the daughter of Jairus,

 + comfort those
   who mourn for the dead.

Christ, Savior,
destroy the reign of sin
in our earthly bodies,
so that just as through sin
we deserved punishment,

 + so through you
   may we gain eternal life.

Christ, Redeemer,
look on those who have
no hope because they
do not know you,

 + may they receive faith
   in the resurrection
   and in the life of
   the world to come.

You revealed yourself to
the blind man who begged
for the light of his eyes,

 + show your face to the dead
   who are still deprived
   of your light.

When our last earthly home
is dissolved,

 + give us a home,
   not of earthly making,
   but built of eternity
   in heaven.

Lord, you are our life and resurrection.

Jesus said to his disciples, "Don't be worried! Have faith in God and have faith in me.  There are many rooms in my Father's house.  I wouldn't tell you this, unless it was true.  I am going there to prepare a place for each of you.  After I have done this, I will come back and take you with me.  Then we will be together. "

- John 14:1-3

Lord of mercy,
hear our prayer.
May our brothers and sisters,
whom you called 
your sons and daughters on earth,
enter the kingdom of peace and light,
where your saints live in glory.
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.

Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.  Yet even now I know that God will do anything you ask."

Jesus told her, "You brother will live again!"

Martha answered, "I know that he will be raised to life on the last day, when all the dead are raised."

Jesus then said, "I am the one who raises the dead to life!  Everyone who has faith in me will live, even if they die.  And everyone who lives because of faith in me will never really die.  Do you believe this?"

- John 11:21-26

Let us pray to the all-powerful Father
who raised Jesus from the dead
and gives new life to our
mortal bodies,
and say to him:

Lord, give us new life in Christ.

Father, through baptism we have been buried with your Son and have risen with him in his resurrection,

+ grant that we may walk in newness of life so that when we die, we may live with Christ for ever.

Provident Father, you have given us the living bread that has come down from heaven and which should always be eaten worthily,

+ grant that we may eat this bread worthily and be raised up to eternal life on the last day.

Lord, you sent an angel to comfort your Son in his agony,

+ give us the hope of your consolation when death draws near.

You delivered the three youths from the fiery furnace,

+ free your faithful ones from the punishment they suffer for their sins.

God of the living and the dead, you raised Jesus from the dead,

+ raise up those who have died and grant that we may share eternal glory with them.

Lord, give us new life in Christ.

- Intercessions
Morning Prayer
Office for the Dead

But Christ has been raised to life!  And he makes us certain that others will also be raised to life.  Just as we will die because of Adam, we will be raised to life because of Christ.  Adam brought death to all of us, and Christ will bring life to all of us.  But we must each wait our turn.  Christ was the first to be raised to life, and his people will be raised to life when he returns.  Then after Christ has destroyed all powers and forces, the end will come, and he will give the kingdom to God the Father.

Christ will rule until he puts all his enemies under his power, and the last enemy he destroys will be death.  When the Scriptures say that he will put everything under his power, they don’t include God.  It was God who put everything under the power of Christ.  After everything is under the power of God’s Son, he will put himself under the power of God, who put everything under his Son’s power.  Then God will mean everything to everyone.

- 1 Corinthians 15:20-24, 25-28

The Lord is merciful! 
He is kind and patient, 
and his love never fails. 
He doesn’t punish us as our sins deserve.
Just as parents are kind to their children,
the Lord is kind to all who worship him,
because he knows we are made of dust.
We humans are like grass 
or wild flowers that quickly bloom.
But a scorching wind blows, 
and they quickly wither 
to be forever forgotten. 

The Lord is always kind 
to those who worship him, 
and he keeps his promises 
to their descendants 
who faithfully obey him.

- Psalm 103:8, 10, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18
