Funerals

 

The Book of Common Prayer offers several liturgies that deal with death. Perhaps least know in the Litany at the time of Death. When family and friends are able to join in saying this litany, it draws those present into a common action of prayer and intercession for the dying. The Eucharist is a normative part of the Funeral Service. From the earliest days of the Church, the Eucharist was celebrated at such moments. In the bread and wine we see both the redemption that Christ accomplishes on the cross, which provides the way to new life. Depending on the wishes of the family, the service may take the form of a simple memorial. At the time that the remains are committed to their final resting place, a brief service called The Committal is said.

 

Whatever arrangements required for the comfort of the family and the desires of the departed, the Rector will work to provide services that bring healing and wholeness.
