Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions. In Unitarian Universalist congregations, these services are developed by the family of the deceased and the presiding minister to specially honor the memory of that individual. The service might include the following elements:
If you would like to have a Unitarian Universalist minister preside over a funeral or other memorial service, please contact a Unitarian Universalist congregation near you.
