MEMORIAL SERVICES

Info: 415-776-4580 or reservations@uusf.org

Scheduling, coordinating, and carrying out the memorial service can be a difficult prospect, especially while also coping with grief over the loss of the departed loved one. This can be especially difficult if you or your family is not a member of a church or your departed loved one did not wish to have a service held within a traditional church. UUSF can provide the comfort of a "traditional" church environment for those who need it without many of the strictures of other churches. (See the UU core principles for more information on what UUSF stands for.) Families without a church affiliation or with mixed religious beliefs may choose to commemorate the lives of their loved ones in our sanctuary. Our ministers give careful consideration to the thoughts, feelings, and well-being of the family as well as the unique life of the deceased and can work with you to come up with an appropriate ceremony to commemorate the passing of your loved one.
