About Orthodox Funerals

What you need to know

While there are differing views in Orthodox Christianity, generally speaking, followers of the religion believe in living holy, Christ-like lives, and that the experience of being in God’s presence is different for everyone.

When the death of a person is imminent, a priest is brought in to hear their final confession and administer Holy Communion. After the death, the priest will lead those present through prayers to help release the soul. Cremation is strictly prohibited in the Eastern Orthodox Church; although, organ donation is gradually becoming accepted and considered one of the greatest gifts to give.

It is also common for friends and family to assist with embalming, in particular, dressing the deceased and placing sentimental items in the coffin.
