Memorial Services and Funerals
In the wake of death, Unitarian Universalists grieve, but we also celebrate life. Our ministers work with family and friends to create a service that honors the sacred journey of the person who has died. It’s not unusual to see tears and to hear laughter at these services.
The service might include the following elements:
- A eulogy
- Poems or other readings
- Prayer or meditation
- Time for stories and memories
- Hymns or other music
- Time for personal reflection
If needed, our ministers can also work with a family on a short graveside interment rather than on the more usual memorial service. If you would like to have one of our Unitarian Universalist ministers preside over a funeral or memorial service, please contact us for more information.
