Memorial services, funerals and receptions

Holy Wisdom Monastery provides a peaceful environment for funerals and memorial services. Both members of our worshipping community and non members alike can hold these services at the monastery.

The monastery assembly room seats 300 guests.

Scheduling a service

Holy Wisdom Monastery is available for a funeral or memorial service during the week or weekend whenever the assembly room is available for a four-hour time period. This includes a time for visitation with the family before the service begins.

Planning a service

At Holy Wisdom Monastery we offer the option for you to bring your own pastor, minister, or priest to preside at the funeral or memorial service.

Every family is different, and not everyone wants the same type of funeral or memorial service. So we give you the flexibility to create whatever service you wish in order to honor your loved one.

Some families wish to pre-plan services, ask us how.

Hospitality room

A private hospitality room will be provided for the family throughout the event. The hospitality room has a private accessible restroom and kitchenette available.

Receptions
