Memorial Services in Unitarian Universalism

Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions. In Unitarian Universalist congregations, these services are developed by the family of the deceased and the presiding minister to specially honor the memory of that individual. The service might include the following elements:

  • A eulogy
  • Poems and other readings
  • Prayer or meditation
  • A time to remember the deceased with stories and memories
  • Hymn singing or other music
  • A time for personal reflection

If you would like to have a Unitarian Universalist minister preside over a funeral or other memorial service, please contact a Unitarian Universalist congregation near you.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
