The Funeral Officiant - A.R. Adams Funeral Directors
A funeral officiant may be needed if you are to hold a funeral service in honour of a loved one. If you have a religious faith, it may be the priest or pastor of your church. However, if you do not belong to a specific church or you do not have a particular funeral officiant in mind, then A.R. Adams can recommend a suitable officiant to take the funeral service.
In either instance, A.R. Adams will contact the relevant officiant and inform them of the pending funeral service. We will ask them to contact you and make arrangements to meet with you to discuss the content of the funeral service.
Information regarding past employment history, favourite pastimes and any memorable anecdotes will be discussed. Learning about the relationships a deceased had helps the funeral officiant determine the proper phrases and verses to use during a service.
If you would like the chance to speak during the funeral service, then you can discuss this with the funeral officiant. On the day of the funeral they will then open the floor to you, giving you the opportunity to share a personal experience or fond memory about the person who has passed, with everyone else who loved them.
