Orthodox Funerals Services

The funeral service for the Orthodox Church is an ancient burial service that has been celebrated for close to 2000 years. The service is lead by the priest and contains a number of elements:

  • Psalms
  • Ektenias (litanies)
  • Hymns, and
  • Prayers.

Your White Lady or Mareena Purslowe funeral director, in conjunction with the priest, can discuss the different elements of the funeral service and recommend a choice of readings to help you to express your love for the person in a unique way. You may also be able to choose special photos, music, prepare a booklet or perhaps a video to display.

Whatever personal touches you wish to include, our ladies will tailor a service of remembrance that is as unique as the individual.
