What work must we do in the wake of death? Where do we begin, how do we proceed to face death? To face death together as a parish?

Here Margaret Smith helps you to begin to answer these questions by exploring the riches of the Order of Christian Funerals. In this book you will find:

  • An engaging discussion of the anthropology of death
  • An accessible summary of the OCF’s theology
  • Practical advice for enacting the rites with dignity
  • True stories of pastoral situations, good and bad
  • A vision for organizing funerals in a context of pastoral care
  • Notes towards rites to use when disconnecting life-support, when organs are donated or bodies given to science after death.
