What Is A Funeral Celebrant?

A Funeral Celebrant is a person who is trained and certified, dedicated to meet the needs of families during their time of loss. A Funeral Celebrant serves by providing a meaningful celebration of life; through a memorial, funeral, or graveside service that is personalized to reflect the personality and life-style of the deceased.



What Does A Certified Funeral Celebrant Offer?

A Celebrant offers an alternative to a service provided by a clergy person for those families who may not be affiliated with a church or who do not wish to have a traditional funeral service.

A Celebrant has been specially trained to design a service that is completely personal, incorporating those unique stories, songs and experiences that define your loved one.

A Celebrant researches a life by interviewing family and friends, to share memories, anecdotes and special moments in their loved one’s life. The essence of the service will be based on remembrances of the family.

A Celebrant has resources available for readings, poetry, ceremonies and personal touches. The Celebrant consults with the family to help design a service that best reflects and memorializes the life of their loved one.

A Celebrant writes and conducts personalized celebrations of life. A Celebrant is bound by a Code of Ethics for complete confidentiality in all dealings with individual and families.

Every Life Has A Story

Everyone has experienced something… Whether you have lived an hour, a day, a year, or decades, people have experienced at least one of the senses. They seen their mother’s eyes, or, they seen a great sight. They have heard a chirping bird, or, they’ve heard great music. They have touched a fuzzy kitten, or, they’ve laughed at a silly joke. They have tasted a great meal, or, they’ve felt an unbelievable sensation. They have seen amazing things, or, they have seen family moments. They’ve felt the touch of a loving hand, or, they’ve simply loved someone else. Together, we can celebrate their unique memories by listing to their stories…



When someone you love dies, you don’t get over it by forgetting: you get through it by remembering, and you are aware that no person is ever truly lost or gone once they have been in our lives and loved us as we have loved them.
