Holy Redeemer Old Catholic Church: New Castle DE
Holy Redeemer Old Catholic Church
We welcome the ability to be of service for Funeral Directors and Cemeteries in offering a Christian service and/or burial. There are little differences among the Christian faiths in burial rites. We are more than happy to adjust to the desires and needs of the family.

We emphasize even more our desire to assist Veterans.

We ask for due notice (two or three days in advance) so that we can be sure our schedule is clear and give time to possibly meet with the family. However please do not hesitate to contact us with a shorter notice. If we are free, we will be there.

We do request at least a kind stipend to help cover time, travel and the mission of our church to serve.
