It is with sadness that we let the community know that Eva Riis died suddenly, though peacefully this past weekend. Please keep her and her family (sister Marlene and Al) in prayer. Eva has been a long time member of St. A’s, though homebound on account of health for a number of years. There will be a small family internment in Hanna, AB.
WHETHER we live, we live unto the Lord; or whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died, and lived again, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
Romans 14. 8, 9.
ALMIGHTY God, with whom do live the spirits of them that depart hence in the Lord, and with whom the souls of the faithful are in joy and felicity: We praise and magnify thy holy Name for all thy servants who have finished their course and kept the faith; and committing our sister Eva to thy gracious keeping, we pray that we with her, and with all those that are departed in the true faith of thy holy Name, may have our perfect consummation and bliss, both in body and soul, In thy eternal and everlasting glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
