Prayers for the Rt. Rev. Mary Gray-Reeves


On Saturday, June 21, Michael Reeves died in a tragic bicycle accident in Monterey County. Michael was the husband of Rt. Rev. Mary Gray-Reeves, bishop of El Camino Real, which lies to the south of the Diocese of California. The prayers of Bishop Marc, the DioHouse staff, and the Diocese of California are with Bishop Mary and her family in this time of sadness and grief.

A Celebration of the Risen Christ and Michael's life within it will be held at St. Andrew’s, 13601 Saratoga Avenue, Saratoga, Friday, June 27, 5 p.m. Information about gifts in lieu of flowers is available from the Diocese of El Camino Real.

Father of all, we pray to you for those we love, but see no longer: Grant them your peace; let light perpetual shine upon them; and, in your loving wisdom and almighty power, work in them the good purpose of your perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with all who mourn; that, casting all  their care on you, they may know the consolation of your  love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
