"In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken the chains of sin and death that bound humanity;" Order of Christian Funerals ©1989
When we suffer the passing of a loved one or face the certainty of our own death, the Church's funeral rites provide a place where we can grieve, remember, face our fear, give thanks, celebrate, and above all connect our personal human experience to that of the believing community and to the story of Jesus.
We are ready to help you in this time of the passing from this life into eternal life. The forms below are meant to start the planning process of the Church’s funeral rites. Please make an appointment with Deacon Joe ([email protected], 570-625-4536 ext. 112) at your earliest opportunity to continue the planning process.
