A morning to reflect creatively about theological, liturgical and pastoral aspects of funeral ministry, as well as care of the bereaved in relation to funeral services.

It will be of interest to experienced funeral officiants (clergy, lay or civil) as well as anyone just starting to take funerals or wanting to think a little further about exploring this ministry.
