Planning Your Last Hurrah!

A Workshop for the Celebration of Your Life

Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 11am to 3pm 

As Christians, we know that death does not have the final word. Jesus has conquered sin and death forever. The Apostles’ Creed states: we believe in the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.

Funerals are among the times that we as Christians do our best. We comfort one another in our grief, we gather in community, and we proclaim Christ crucified and risen. A Christian funeral is not a tribute to how wonderful you were, but instead it publicly affirms the saving power of God, as demonstrated in your life as well as a time for those left behind to pray for you as you enter into the most sacred of Mysteries. 

The days following a death can often be overwhelming for family members to put the details of a funeral together. Whether it is following a long illness or a surprising accident, your loved ones may wonder what your wishes really were. This workshop is an opportunity for you to think about these things now – long before the end comes.  

This workshop is crafted to be an uplifting and enjoyable experience.  Lunch is included – donations gratefully accepted.  All materials for the workshop are included.  Open to all, not just Clementines.
