Life Celebrants

What is a Celebrant?

A Celebrant is a facilitator, master of ceremonies and guide who tends to the needs of families, to honor their loved one in a time of loss.

The Funeral Celebrant's mission is to create a ceremony that reflects the wishes, beliefs, cultural background and values - religious or non-religious - of your loved one and your family.

Whether your family is secular, religious, spiritual or interfaith, or if you simply wish to express yourself in a manner of your own choosing, a Celebrant can help to create a meaningful, memorable and fitting end of life tribute.

The Celebrant spends hours creating the ceremony and learning about your loved one in unhurried meetings with family and friends. In collaboration with you, your Celebrant will carefully craft a eulogy and create a ceremony with music, quotes, readings, unique symbols and rituals of your choosing. Celebrants can work side by side with clergy to create a memorable life celebration for your loved one. A life celebrant will not perform religious ceremonies that are reserved to be performed solely by the clergy of that religion.

Funeral Celebrants have been drawn to this work by a strong realization that every life has meaning and deserves to be celebrated and celebrated well. Many have experienced grief themselves. All are convinced that funerals can be a valuable source of healing. Nothing can take away the grief, but a genuine, well prepared tribute may ease the pain.
