The death of a loved one is difficult, no matter how well prepared we are. The clergy staff at the American Cathedral are available to meet and pray with you, and to assist in the planning of a funeral service. It is an honor for us to accompany you during this time, and to offer a place of hospitality and welcome.
Funeral and memorial services are based on the order of service in The Book of Common Prayer, which says: "The liturgy for 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." The liturgy is characterized by joy and the reality that nothing can separate us from the love of God. It also honors the the very real grief that comes when someone we love, or struggle to love, dies. The pastoral staff is also available to discuss advance planning of a funeral. Please feel free to contact us.
