Services to honor loved ones who have passed on are often very personal occasions.

In Unitarian Universalist congregations, these services are developed by the family of the deceased and the presiding minister to specially honor the memory of that individual.

The service might include the following elements:

  • A eulogy
  • Poems and other readings
  • Prayer or mediation
  • A time to remember the deceased with stories and memories
  • Hymn singing and other music
  • A time for personal reflection

More information can be found at: UUA memorial service traditions.

If you would like to have a Unitarian Universalist minister preside over a funeral or other memorial service, please contact Olympic Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at:

If you feel a need for yourself during this time, please contact our Lay Pastoral Care at

If you wish to help with the service, set-up, flowers, food, etc., please contact Florence Bucierka at
