Celebration of Life Workshop  

Sunday, March 24, 12:20 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the UUCH Sanctuary

A follow-up session for this workshop may be held. Contact Donna Catling for more information.

          Pre-planning a memorial service or a celebration of life allows a person to make their wishes known and eliminates a stressful burden for family members and loved ones. A memorial service can celebrate life as well as mourn a death.

          Participants in the workshop will discuss types of memorial services, look at examples of UU services and at guidelines for preparing their own, and begin to prepare a service using resources provided. In this interactive workshop conducted by Donna Catling, there will be ample opportunity for participant input and sharing. Please bring any material that you may want to use or share (programs of services you have attended, books of poetry, readings, meditations). Laptops to access on-line UU resources would be helpful but are not essential.

          There will be the usual coffee, tea and snacks after the Sunday service, but feel free to bring other snacks or a bagged lunch.

          Please RSVP by Friday, March 15 to Donna Catling so sufficient materials can be prepared.
