A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is an opportunity for friends and family members to express their grief, give thanks for the life of their loved one and commend him or her into God’s keeping.
Following the loss of a loved one, a funeral can be a source of comfort and strength. The service highlights the promises of Jesus Christ, and the hope of the resurrection, when Christ triumphed over death and made eternal life available to us all.
Anyone who lives within the parish of St. George’s is eligible to have their funeral held at the church, even if they are not active churchgoers.
