Funerals

Firmly rooted in Christian faith, we can provide assistance and comfort to you during the difficult period following the death of a loved one.

Has someone just died?

Contact the office. She or another staff member will meet with you to provide grief support and begin the preparation for a funeral service. You may choose between a traditional funeral service, a more contemporary service, or a memorial service. All follow a basic Anglican liturgy but you will be able to personalize it with readings, music and a time of thanksgiving. There is ample space available at St. Paul's for a reception following the service.

Would you like some help following a death?

Pastoral Care
Our pastoral staff are available to meet with you as you grieve. We offer help from a Christian perspective, and also will make referrals if necessary to grief counselors or support groups, such as GriefShare. As well as personal support, St. Paul’s provides a year-long bereavement support program through four booklets, “Journeying Through Grief”, that are sent out at regular intervals.

Service of Light
Christmas can be a difficult time of year, when many memories and losses become real again. The Service of Light, a reflective service focusing on the light of Christ, and hope arising from life’s dark moments, takes place the week before Christmas.
