Funeral and memorial services are based on the order called The Burial Office, found in the Book of Common Prayer. A note in the prayerbook explains that “The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised.” In light of this, every funeral or memorial service is a celebration of Life, and the choice of music and readings, while acknowledging our human grief and loss, also point us to the hope and joy of the resurrection. Any who wish to plan in advance their own funeral or that of a loved one are invited to call the parish clergy.
