Funerals

In the Episcopal Church, the service for the Burial of the Dead offers both comfort and joy, empathy and hope. Scripture readings, hymns, and prayers with Holy Eucharist, all acknowledge the mourning of those who are left behind, as well as celebrate the great gift of new life even in the face of death, won first by our Savior Jesus Christ, and still experienced by the faithful today.

To arrange a funeral, family members should contact the Church as soon as possible after a death. The clergy will arrange a meeting with the family to plan the service.

If you are interested in a sacrament for yourself or others, please contact the church either via email or by phone (653-9691) for more information.
