Funerals and Memorial Services
"Life is changed, not ended."
(Book of Common Prayer, p. 382)
Because Episcopalians believe in God's abiding love and the gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ, our funeral services are anchored in the joy of Easter morning and resurrection. The liturgy is a celebration in which we give thanks for a loved one who has passed and commend that person to God's care.
Of course, this does not mean that we do not grieve. But, rejoicing in the power and promise of Easter, we stand in sympathy with those who mourn and offer our comfort.
Our rector, music director, and staff will help you plan a liturgy of scripture readings and music.
And, for the family and friends of those who have chosen cremation, All Saints' Memorial Garden provides serene surroundings. Ashes may be placed within a niche in the columbarium or interred in the flowerbed of the garden.
