Available Services

Weddings and Renewal of Vows

Our Minister has provincial authorization to solemnize marriages. We can also provide Wedding Blessing services and Renewal of Vows Services. All services can be traditional or can be tailored to suit the wishes of the couple.


A Spiritualist funeral is a tribute to the individual who has taken his/her transition to the Spirit World and is a grateful acknowledgment of that person's presence in the lives of others. On this poignant occassion, holding a service that recognises a person's individuality and importance to family, friends and other loved ones, is a final act of love and respect, and a celebration of that person's life. We are privileged to offer this service in our Sanctuary or another location of your choice.

For further information regarding weddings, vow renewals, or funerals please contact Rev. Claudia Orr at 403-288-6717.
