Funerals and Memorial Services
The death of a member of the Church should be reported as soon as possible to, and arrangements for the funeral should be made in consultation with, the Minister of the Congregation.
Book of Common Prayer, 1979. p. 490
The clergy of St. David's Church are available to assist members and non-members of the congregation and their families before, during, and following the time of death. Please do not hesitate to be in touch, using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
Acknowledging the fact that death comes to each of us, it is always a good idea to plan ahead - no matter our age - so that family members or friends entrusted with our care leading up to, at the time of, and after death can honor our personal wishes and not have to be burdened with this additional task at an already difficult time.
