«Return to Blog List What Is a Celebrant?
To address the needs of families in grief and to help the healing process go forward, funeral homes are beginning to utilize the services and expertise of Funeral Celebrants. Initiated by Doug Manning from the Insight Institute, the training of Funeral Celebrants is changing how families are cared for in times of loss and how funerals are becoming avenues of hope and healing. Central to the role of a Celebrant is offering the compassion and care that families need in times of loss, as well as mentoring and guiding them in a meaningful tribute that reflects who they are as a family and honoring the person who has passed. Rivera Funeral is pleased to offer this vital resource of celebration and remembrance to the families we serve.
