My family wants a minister for mom and I want a celebrant. How can the two work together?
Our Celebrants are honored to work with Church leaders. First, the Celebrant would work directly with the church leader to ensure no repetition of service material. Secondly, bound by a code of ethics, the Celebrant would follow the rules, regulations and procedures established by the church. Our Celebrants understand that they are simply a part of the service and are to follow the church’s lead on the ceremony.
I belong to a church and my funeral is free. Why would I pay additional money for a funeral Celebrant?
If your spiritual leader does not have the time or skills to prepare a personalized memorial service, a funeral Celebrant is ideal. Adding a Celebrant to a religious service maintains tradition while acknowledging the significance of the person whose life is being honored. Celebrants allow spiritual leaders to focus on their strengths, and deliver powerful sermons during the funeral.
I am a Pastor and I meet with my families, so I consider myself a Celebrant of sorts. Why would I use a Celebrant?
Many progressive spiritual leaders are seeing the value of celebrating a life during the funeral. The impact and appreciation that families feel when you spend extra time preparing a personalized service is priceless. A Celebrant would be a resource for you if you were unable to perform the service. Life, vacation or any other number of ministerial duties may pull you away when a family is in need. Know that Good Grief Celebrations Celebrants are available anytime you need us.
How do I know if a Celebrant is certified?
We have a certificate of program completion on file for each Celebrant who works for us. Celebrants are required to produce a copy upon request for families, funerals homes, churches—anyone who requests it. A master record is kept on file with the Insight Institute.
As a funeral director, why should I recommend Good Grief Celebrations to families?
Good Grief Celebrations is at the forefront of the changing funeral industry. By adding us to your arsenal of funeral services, your families now have another ceremony option—a funeral ceremony that reflects the life and style of their loved one. Our services are perfect for cremations, Catholics who can no longer have eulogies in church, spiritual however not very religious people, and those who want a funeral experience that is out of the ordinary.
Why should we recommend Good Grief Celebrations to families who worship with us as a compliment to funeral services?
Good Grief Celebrations respects the role houses of worship play in the lives of the families we serve. Families have begun to utilize Celebrants and religious leaders to conduct funeral ceremonies together. We appreciate and acknowledge that these leaders are responsible for the spiritual welfare of their parishioners and take on a number of other tasks.
