Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions. In Unitarian Universalist congregations, these services are developed by the deceased’s family and the presiding minister to honor that individual’s memory. The service might include the following elements:

  • A eulogy
  • Poems and other readings
  • Prayer or meditation
  • A time to remember the deceased with stories and memories
  • Hymn singing or other music
  • A time for personal reflection

Please contact our minister for assistance with a funeral or other memorial service. To help plan a Celebration of Life and reception, our minister and Caring Team have compiled a planning guide (see below).  We hope it will assist you as you make decisions and consider possibilities as we help you plan the Celebration.  We include lists of funeral homes and those providing cremations that many of our members have used in the past. We also include caterers and prices for additional services.
