“When I started working in my father’s funeral business as a teenager 40 years ago, funerals were simple – Protestant or Catholic; burial or cremation. That was it! It’s a different world today.”
– CEO, Life Celebration Funerals
The world has changed enormously over the last 20 years, but many funerals don’t reflect how the world has changed. We live our lives as individuals more than ever before, respectful towards but often independent of the religion or culture we grew up in.
Religion and culture are still important to many, but today we make our own meanings of our own lives, living them according to our personal values and beliefs.
As we make our own way in life, so we need new ways to say goodbye at the end of life – new ways to celebrate the lives we live, the people we affect and the difference we make.
Culture and religion in Life Celebrations
There’s a myth that life celebration funerals aren’t religious – and that just isn’t so.
A Life Celebration Funeral celebrates a life well-lived – and if that life was lived in the context of a particular culture, religion or belief then that’s what we celebrate.
Our highly experienced professionals understand how to create ceremonies that respect Sydney’s diverse range of cultures and beliefs.
Culture and religion are important elements in creating a celebration that authentically honours one special person, their individuality, their beliefs and the life they lived.
Choice, flexibility and respect
A Life Celebration Funeral gives you choice and meets your needs. You get choice of venue, choice of time, choice in personal touches – choices that go to the heart of celebrating your special person and making them the focus of the farewell.
A true celebration of life is the best way to help you, your family and your friends to make sense of your loss and find meaningful ways of dealing with it.
Every person on our team – Funeral Directors, Funeral Arrangers, Celebrants and support staff – has deep experience in the funeral industry. But that’s not all they’re chosen for. We choose them for their commitment to celebrating lives well lived and their ability to support you through your loss.
