Celebration of Life

Christians believe that the end of this life on earth is the beginning of a glorious new life in Christ. Anglican funerals try to balance the grief of the living with a celebration of the life of the deceased, and faith in the hope of the resurrection.

If your loved one is approaching death or has died, our Vicar, Rev. Brian Heinrich, would be honoured to offer compassionate support in this difficult time.

The rector and family together arrange the service structure, readings, music, readers, prayer leaders and other appropriate remembrance.

Services may be held at the graveside, in a funeral home or in a crematorium in addition to or instead of the service in the church. A memorial service may also be requested.
