St. Christopher's Episcopal Church

Funerals and Memorial Services

The faith community at Saint Christopher’s is honored to offer the hospitality of the church to you in this time of loss and sorrow. It is our privilege to assist you in any way we can. As Christians, we proclaim that in death, life is changed, not ended, and we hope our ministry will help you to move forward with assurance that the person you love has passed through death into new life in God, and that in your grief, Christ makes himself present in compassion.

Funeral and memorial services at Saint Christopher’s are based on the order of service provided in The Book of Common Prayer. The clergy and musician will help your family to plan the service, and to choose readings, prayers, hymns, and music that proclaim our faith in resurrection; reflect and celebrate the life of the person who has died; and offer comfort and hope to all who mourn.
