How A Celebrant Helps A Family Heal
Those dealing with the death of a family member can find it very stressful and traumatic to deal with the situation. While planning a memorial service can be very challenging, keeping your feelings in check can make the entire process overwhelming. This is the reason many find themselves very troubled and stressed while planning a funeral service.
We at Gallagher Funeral Home understand all the angst and agony that people go through while dealing with the death of someone they love. At a time like this, they want to do something unique in remembrance of that person. Some prefer to go the religious way and have a traditional funeral service for a memorial service. On the other hand, certain families choose to hire a celebrant instead.
What Does A Celebrant Do?
A celebrant is a person who helps families with funeral arrangements while providing them the emotional support they require in this challenging time. They handle the spiritual aspect of a funeral, and there is no religious connotation to the services they offer. They speak with the decedent’s loved ones about their loss, reducing their stress during this time.
In many ways, the direction and support they provide to family members are like a funeral director. However, a celebrant offers personalized service and can help with writing a eulogy based on details you and your family members provide.
Many people are not aware of the theological aspects of handling a funeral service. A celebrant can help in this respect, explaining the spiritual angle of the cycle of life and death. This provides the grieving family some comfort when they are trying to cope with the demise of a loved one.
