As soon as an Orthodox faithful fall asleep, the priest makes a Trisagion over the body. Then the funeral home takes care of the paperwork and of the body until arrangements of the funeral services are ready to be performed in coordination with the family and the priest.
The funerals prayers can be performed at the funeral homes or at church, the families are encouraged to use the church for prayers because it is more appropriate for prayer for the Orthodox faithful.
In case the funerals prayers are performed at church, the clergy will make the preaching or the eulogy at church, while the family eulogies are performed during the mercy meals.
Kindly contact the Pastor of the church for coordination and for the announcement of the arrangements to the parish.
