At Christ Church Cathedral, we are more than a church; we are a family. We pray with you in times of need and, following the death of a loved one, we provide pastoral care and help guide you through any necessary arrangements.
Funerals at CCC are scheduled through the pastoral care office. A clergy member will assist with the arrangements, which should be completed before publishing an obituary or establishing a date with the funeral home. There are no burial or funeral service fees, but there may be costs associated with refreshments, flowers, or outside musicians.
A funeral service is generally 45 to 60 minutes, and includes a homily and Holy Communion. The parish hall is available for pre-service or post-service gatherings, but food and floral arrangements must be made with the hospitality coordinator. Committal services are also available.
We encourage members of the parish to make funeral arrangements in advance. The information is kept confidential and allows your loved ones to have more time to pray, reflect, and remember. Let us know if you would like to make arrangements, or would like to speak to a member of the clergy.
