Burial of the Dead

When someone dies, the clergy of Holy Trinity Church provide pastoral care and counsel to the family of the deceased. Contact the church office to arrange a consultation with the Rector who will offer guidance with funeral arrangements, 352-372-4721.

Baptized Christians are properly buried from the church. “The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection….The liturgy, therefore is characterized by joy, in the certainty that ‘neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.’” The Book of Common Prayer, p. 507
