Christian funerals

Upon the death of a person who is dear to you, we will accompany you with all our heart to share this event, prepare and celebrate the funeral at church, and associate our Christian community to your prayer of hope.

The whole Christian tradition invites us to consider death as an event to live in Church. The funeral liturgy convenes relatives and members of the Christian community to recommend to God the deceased. It strengthens their faith in the paschal mystery and the resurrection of the dead.
