No one is refused burial from St. Paul’s Church. Please contact the clergy if you need to arrange for a burial service. This may be a solemn, joyful celebration of the Eucharist as we experience on Sundays, or it may be a quiet service in the church, funeral home, or at the grave site.
It is a blessing to family when the deceased has prepared specific directions for funeral preferences. Forms for this purpose are available from the church office. Selecting such things as music and readings takes a burden off family and makes the Rite of Christian Burial a more personal event.
St. Paul’s has a lovely Memorial Garden for the interment of ashes. There are plots available. Please call the parish office if you would like further information.
Ministration at the time of death
When a loved one is dying, the clergy are available to pray with them and family and friends who may be present. The Prayer Book includes a litany and other prayers for this purpose. This can be a very comforting experience both for the dying person and those anticipating his or her loss. Please be in touch with the clergy at St. Paul’s for more information.
