A service of burial is an opportunity to say good-bye, to say thank you, to seek hope and comfort and even to seek healing and forgiveness when we struggle with loose ends in our relationship with the deceased. We gather to remember and celebrate the life of our loved one and to let ourselves mourn the loss within the comforting context of our hope in life eternal with God.
Our rector is on call to minister to the sick and the dying. He is glad to come to your home or the hospital to pray, talk and share the Sacraments, and to advise you as you make preparations. Wakes are strongly encouraged as they provide time for support and connection with friends and family. Often stories are told and we learn so much more about the meaning of the life of our loved one.
Our rector will work with you to prepare and personalize the funeral service. The Ministry Center is available for receptions after the funeral. St. Michael and All Angels also has an outdoor Memorial Garden for the interment of ashes.
Please contact our rector to schedule a funeral.
