Memorial Services

Memorial services can be held in a range of settings, and can take place any time after someone's death: from a few day to months later. Even if families wish to "celebrate" the life of a loved one, memorial services are often occasions when the complexities of grief and family dynamics arise. Because these are tender and powerful dynamics, it's advisable to invite an experienced religious professional to help plan, and lead, memorial services.
