As a full-service funeral home and cemetery, we strive to be able to provide services beyond the typical products and services. One such service that sets Arlington apart is our Certified Celebrants on our Arlington staff.
A funeral celebrant is a qualified person who officiates funeral services by planning and overseeing funeral proceedings. Funeral celebrants conduct non-religious, semi-religious and spiritual funeral services.
Many celebrants aim for the funeral service to be a ‘celebration of life’ that honors the person’s memory. This approach places an emphasis on how the person lived their life, their personality traits and the memories of mourners. For this reason, celebrants are the go-to option for people looking to create ceremonies of substance and meaning without necessarily mentioning religious beliefs or the afterlife
