Families can have all their needs taken care of in one visit, with coordination of religious arrangements, staff and family. One of the most sacred moments of our lives is that of death. This moment requires us to treat the lifeless body with utmost respect, reverence and love.
Separation from our loved ones through death produces a unique trauma that requires a unique comfort that only God can give us; and that we know through the love of Jesus Christ and His Church.
Alternative & Torres Memorial Funeral Home is committed to accompanying, comforting and offering pastoral funeral services to individuals and families as they experience the death of a loved one. We offer a full range of funeral services. They are a celebration of faith that allows loved ones and the community to mourn, emphasizing the promise of eternal life and the hope of resurrection in Christ. We offer two distinct rites at the time of the funeral. Each rite serves an important purpose in guiding our family and friends through the loss , grief and healing journey. The two rites include:
- The vigil and the wake:
The vigil and wake are often the first time family and friends gather for prayer and support, commemorating a treasured life.
- Funeral Service:
This is the beginning of the Christian funeral celebration, where family and friends join together to reaffirm that life has not ended. It is the commemoration of Christ's sacrifice and is a reminder that we are one with Christ in life, death and resurrection. Here family and friends gather to say goodbye for the last time with the comfort and promise of eternal life in the resurrection.
We arrange for a Priest, minister or pastor or other duly certified for this purpose, coordinated by our staff. A stipend for the officiant is suggested to the family member in charge.
