The liturgy for the Burial of the Dead is a resurrection liturgy characterized by a sense of the celebration of the life of the person who has died. Along with this, in the liturgy we also grieve with those who have been separated from the one whom they love. WeDo Services will assist with the preparation of the Order of Service and meet with the family to faciltiate the remembrance of their loved one.
It’s best if the family meets with the clergy before making any decisions about the funeral, the burial liturgy or receptions related to the funeral. There are several Order of Service formats to review and select from. These liturgies can be modified, with the assistance of your clergy, to accommodate your needs and wants.
The liturgy for the Burial of the Dead, with either the body or ashes present is usually held within a few days of the person’s death. It usually includes a celebration of the Holy Eucharist - or Communion. However, this, of course is optional.
A committal which is a brief, graveside liturgy that follows directly after a funeral or can be done later if necessary. It is also possible to have a burial liturgy as a memorial service. This may be done a few days to a few weeks after death. The liturgy may be without either body or ashes.
A homily is preached by the clergy, typically in the Chapel. Persons may be invited to make brief remarks, during the liturgy, and this can be determined at the time of the meeting. Should organ music or a special musical piece be desired - WeDo can assist in secure what is necessary.
A Liturgical Fee for the WeDo Clergy as well as musical stipend would be expected.
