Burial Planning Form

Burial Planning Form

Christian burial in the Episcopal Church is a celebration of life, remembering Christ's victory over death. Please consider this form to be a gift- a gift to you to remind you of your own resurrection as you plan the readings and hymns for your service. Please review the burial services in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer as a guide for planning your service. Burial Rite One is on pages 468-489; Rite Two is on 490-505. The Rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church will be happy to assist you with the form at your convenience.
