Memorial Services and Funerals
In the wake of death, Unitarian Universalists grieve, but we also celebrate life. The minister works with family and friends to create a service that honors the sacred journey of the person who has died. It’s not unusual to see tears and to hear laughter at these services.
Memorial services usually occur after cremation or burial, though on occasion they happen before the interment of ashes. No casket is present for a memorial service.
