Memorial Services and Funerals
In the event of a death, Unitarian Universalist ministers work with the family and closest friends to craft a unique and meaningful ceremony. Typically, the focus in on sharing memories and lifting up the legacy that this particular life leaves behind, while acknowledging the full array of complex emotions that death brings us. Memorial services are held in the most suitable location (the church, at home, a funeral parlor, local auditorium) at the most convenient time for the closest family and friends of the deceased.
Sometimes families wish to have a short grave-side Committal ceremony when the body or ashes are buried in lieu of or in addition to a memorial service. Other times, an informal gathering better meets the needs of the surviving family members and friends.
Please contact the church for more information on memorial services.
