As described in The Book of Common Prayer, “The liturgy of the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we too, shall be raised.” In this sense, a funeral service can be a source of comfort to grieving families and friends. St. Paul’s Clergy will support and assist the bereaved as they plan the funeral of a loved one. The Cathedral’s Director of Music will be available prior to a funeral to help as well.
Parishioners are welcome to pre-plan their own funeral so that the service will reflect their wishes, including prayers, readings and music.
