Funerals are a celebration of life and a recognition that, in our physical death, life is changed but not ended. Our physical death is not the end of our story. In the Episcopal Church, the funeral liturgy finds its meaning in the celebration of Easter, and witnesses to the assurance that, because Jesus has been raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised. This does not, however, diminish the pain and sorrow that the loss of a loved one brings. It is therefore also an opportunity for the faith community to pray for and support the bereaved in their loss.
In the event of a death, please contact the church office immediately, and a member of the clergy will be in touch with you.
