As Christians, we live in the hope and reality that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ – nothing in life; nothing in death. Still, one of the hardest things we face in this life is the death of a loved one. The clergy, staff, and pastoral care team at St. John the Divine offer their caring support and expertise to individuals and families through those first difficult days.

The funeral may take place in either the chapel or the church and interment may take place before or after the liturgy. At the time of death, please contact our funeral coordinator Sally Lehmberg, slehmberg@sjd.org, or 713.354.2220 and she and one of our clergy will be in contact with you as soon as possible.


Funeral and Bereavement Notification List: To help you know when we celebrate the lives of those in our parish who have passed on, we have created a funeral and bereavement notification list. Sign up here to receive notices of deaths among our parish family and funeral/burial services to be held at St. John the Divine.
