WHAT IS A CELEBRANT
At a time when words are most difficult for the family, the Celebrant is your voice.
Every life, whether short or long, leaves something to be celebrated. At a time that is most difficult for a family, the Celebrant offers the security and inspiration of beautiful, heartfelt words, and a personalized tribute service. A Certified Funeral Celebrant is a trained, caring professional who meets with the family at their time of loss - listening to the stories, gathering remembrances, and creating a unique personal ceremony to honor and celebrate the life of their loved one - bringing comfort to family and friends as they start the healing process.
When the stories live, a life is never gone.
Celebrants set a special meeting time for the family and close friends to share memories, anecdotes, and work closely together to create a special service that truly honors the loss, celebrates the life, and reflects the wishes of the family.
A Celebrant offers alternative options for families not affiliated with a church, or for those who do not wish to have a traditional religious funeral service. Celebrants often also work in conjunction with clergy to provide a personalized eulogy. The Celebrant takes time and care to listen to how you want to say goodbye.
The Celebrant structures a tribute that provides a safe environment for people to mourn, while conducting the ceremony, incorporating requested readings, sharing the life of the person, and lending support to family and friends who wish to participate.
Certified Celebrants maintain a comprehensive library of resources for readings, music, ceremonies, and personal touches. All Certified Celebrants follow a Code of Ethics that ensures complete confidentiality in all dealings with the family.
