Memorial Services and Funerals
Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions. In Unitarian Universalist congregations, these services are developed by the family of the deceased and the presiding minister to specially honor the memory of that individual. The service might include the following elements:
- A eulogy
- Poems and other readings
- Prayer or meditation
- A time to remember the deceased with stories and memories
- Hymn singing or other music
- A time for personal reflection
At KUUF, our minister conducts memorial services and funerals, as well as three lay officiants who have been appointed by the board. The services of the minister and officiants are free to KUUF members. Fees for non-members are set by each individual.
