Call to Worship
The Rev. Allyson P. Brundige
We have come together today with open hearts to remember our classmates who have died since our school days together. Some names we remember dearly, some we donâ€™t recognize, but our common experience together as a Choate Rosemary Hall family unites us with them and one another. We pray that this time together will bring comfort and solace to all who grieve and joy to those remembering times shared together as friends. Amen. Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven (As comfortable, all are invited to stand)
Praise my soul, the King of Heaven To his feet thy tribute bring. Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, Evermore his praises sing. Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise the everlasting King.
Praise him for his grace and favor To our fathers in distress; Praise him still the same as ever, Slow to chide, and swift to bless. Alleluia! Alleluia! Glorious in his faithfulness.
Angels, help us to adore him; Ye behold him face to face; Sun and moon, bow down before him, Dwellers all in time and space. Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise with us the God of grace.
Sir John Goss
Headmaster Alex Curtis
Reading Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 Eugene Amankwah â€™15
Reading Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You set a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Chapel Hymn (As comfortable, all are invited to stand)
From dreams and visions, heaven-sent, From simple faith and Godly trust, Great empires, yea, each continent, Has risen from the dust.
To those who saw this spire arise, This composition out of nought Is like a light from Christ’s own eyes, A glimpse of Christ’s own thought.
Chibuzor Biosah ’16
Paul Mellon ’25
And through these doors, continual youth, Our kin shall pass in after years, To hear the beauty of His truth, To live His hopes and fears.
Words of Reflection
The Rt. Rev. A. Robert Hirschfeld ’79 Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire

The Rev. Allyson P. Brundige
O God of Wisdom, be present always with this School to guide it, bless it, and keep it. Fill Choate Rosemary Hall and its students with sound knowledge, an insatiable thirst for learning, and a hunger for justice, truth, and peace. Amen. O God of Life, preserve the graduates and former students of this School. Continue to inspire them in their pursuit of knowledge. Uphold them in all goodness and health. Comfort them in their grief. Guide and strengthen them in this life and give them hope in the life to come.

The Rev. Allyson P. Brundige
O God of Mercy, remember with compassion our departed friends and classmates and provide rest to their souls. Bring your peace to them and to all. Amen. Great Is Thy Faithfulness Thomas Chisholm (As comfortable, all are invited to stand) “Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
Refrain: “Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“ Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided— “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me! Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest, Sun, moon and stars in their courses above, Join with all nature in manifold witness To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
Refrain Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

We gather together for our Remembrance Service to celebrate and remember our beloved classmates who have died. While the service incorporates Protestant sung traditions of The Choate School and Rosemary Hall and draws primarily from Judeo-Christian forms of worship, it aims to provide an inclusive time of remembrance for all.
