Vigils & Viewing

A vigil is a time where the family and community can come together to see their person one more time and say their personal farewells. This may include being able to wash and dress their person if they want to with the guidance and support of a funeral director.
A vigil takes place between a person’s death, and their funeral, burial or cremation. Vigils can be held at home or in one of our sanctuaries.
