June 9th event: Virtual Memorial Service, Graveside Service, Green Burial

Please join us on Tuesday, June 9, 7-9 p.m. (Central Time), as MTN members Anne Archbold, Marilaurice Hemlock, and Karen Greer share their experiences with creating and facilitating memorial services during the complicated coronavirus time.

Even though we at MTN view funeral possibilities in a much broader context than many, this pandemic has gotten us to stretch even further – to Zoom!
  • Zoom helps us be a part of a memorable funeral from our living room or office.
    It can be a smaller group setting where you share with others in an informal way rather than a formal setting.
    Families can tell stories and show memorabilia that was left behind by the deceased.
    Zoom can save us from flying across the country to attend a relative or friend’s funeral.

Presented by The Friends and Health Advocates—a Saint Paul-based public health consulting group which promotes communication that bridges differences in culture, language, and class.

From ‘conscious dying’ at home, to family-designed home vigils, to green burials, dying people and those who care for them are rediscovering and redefining what happens before, during and after death.
