Christ Church Cranbrook - Hospitality Center


All of us have had to say good-bye to someone we loved. If we had to plan a funeral, it might have been one of the hardest things we have had to do, particularly if we have not accepted within ourselves the idea that death, indeed, escapes no one.

We are fortunate to have three special people speak with us about funeral planning in the Hospitality Center. Mother Imogen will begin by offering some reflections on the meaning and value of funerals, then discuss the liturgy planning process, and why individuals should carefully consider these matters when planning a funeral. Christopher Wells will then talk about the music involved in the Christian funeral. Finally, John Desmond (from Desmond and Sons Funeral Homes) will provide an overview of funeral planning.
