Queen Elizabeth II

  Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022)

BY ARCHBISHOP LINDA NICHOLLS ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2022

Upon the death of
Her Late Majesty
Elizabeth the Second

by the Grace of God 
of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories
Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith

It is with deep sorrow that we acknowledge the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8, 2022 in her 97th year of life.
Earlier this year, the Queen celebrated the Jubilee anniversary of her reign as monarch, having served with unstinting faithfulness in her responsibilities since 1952. She presided through those years with grace and dignity, rooted in her Christian faith and with love for all the people she served. 
We mourn her death and commend her to eternal life as a faithful servant.

O God, from whom comes everything that is upright and true:
Accept our thanks for the gifts of heart and mind thou didst bestow
on thy servant Elizabeth,

And which she showed forth among us in her words and deeds;
Deal graciously we pray thee, with those who mourn,
especially the members of the Royal Family,
that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love,

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
