A Funeral Celebrant is a professional who has been trained in the specific area of planning and conducting personalized funeral services, memorial services, celebrations of life, graveside services or tributes for families that desire a very personalized experience. While a Funeral Celebrant’s expertise may be used in either faith-based or secular services, a Celebrant may be especially helpful to families that prefer a secular service.

The Funeral Celebrant meets with a family and helps them to design a service that reflects the life and attributes of their loved one, and then conducts that service at a place of the families choosing.

This practice is widely used in New Zealand and Australia and there are now approximately 1,600 Certified Funeral Celebrants throughout the United States and Canada. Ingebrand Funeral Homes is very pleased to be able to offer the expertise of a Funeral Celebrant to the families they serve.

If you would like more information about Celebrant led services, please make an appointment to meet with Katy, in Mora, at Akkerman – Ingebrand Funeral & Cremation Service: 320-679-1933 or in Braham, at Rock – Ingebrand Funeral & Cremation Service: 320-396-2121.
