Has your loved one died?

What is Christian Burial?

At the Burial of the Dead those who mourn may express grief and sorrow as they share in the community's expression of faith, hope, and mutual support in Jesus Christ.

  1. Christian Burial is an act of worship wherein we glorify God for the gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ.

  2. Christian Burial is where members of the Body of Christ gather to comfort one another and to offer mutual assurance of God’s abiding love.

  3. Christian Burial is a liturgy of celebration whereby we give thanks for a deceased loved one and commend that person to the care of Almighty God.

The funeral service is an act of corporate worship, rather than a private affair. It is a time to celebrate, commemorate and give thanks for the life of the departed. A funeral is appropriately set in a church within the context of a Holy Eucharist Service.

Holy Family clergy regard death and funerals as an important part of their work. We care about your family, are eager to offer comfort, and are always available to help you understand God’s love
