Funeral

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world.

We welcome the privilege of helping anyone in grief through funeral services and grief counselling.

It is preferred that funerals be celebrated in the church, ideally within the context of a celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

In the funeral liturgy, the soul of the departed is commended to God’s gracious keeping. Prayers and scripture readings assist the departed’s loved ones and friends in understanding the Christian hope for everlasting life in the Risen Christ.

May the souls of the Faithful Departed rest in peace and rise in glory!
