Families can take care of all their needs in one visit, with the Coordination of religious arrangements, staff and family. One of the most sacred moments of our life is that of death. This moment requires us to treat the lifeless body with utmost respect, reverence and love.
The separation of our loved ones from death causes us a unique trauma that requires a unique consolation and that only God can give us; and that we know through the love of Jesus Christ and his church.
Funeraria Alternative & Torres Memorial we are committed to accompanying, comforting, and offering exequial pastoral services to individuals and families at times when they experience the death of a loved one. It offers 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 different rites at the time of the funeral. Each Rite has an important purpose in guiding our family and friends through loss, pain, and healing journey. The two rites include:
* Vigil and wake:
Vigil and wake are often the first time that family and friends gather for prayer and support, in commemoration of a treasured life.
* Exequial service:
It is the space an hour before the end of services, it is the beginning of the celebration of the Christian funeral, where family and friends come together to reaffirm that life is not over. It is the commemoration of Christ's sacrifice and it is a reminder that we are one with Christ in life, in death and in Resurrection. Here family and friends meet to say goodbye for the last time with the consolation and promise of eternal life in the resurrection.
We coordinate for the face-to-face event of an authorized priest, minister or pastor or other duly certified for these purposes, coordinated by our staff. A stipend for the officiant is suggested to the family member in charge.
