The end of our physical life in death is a reality we all must face. Our hope in everlasting life is based on our trust in Jesus’ resurrection and our belief that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. And yet we mourn our loved ones, as Jesus mourned his friend Lazarus.
Please contact our clergy as soon as possible in times of sickness or death of a loved one so that we can be available to you in times of loss or grief. If you need to reach a priest after office hours, call the office at 901-323-8597 and listen for the pastoral emergency number.
Information on specific funerals may be found on the events page as they are available.
Many members of Saint John's parish and other Episcopalians have chosen to be buried at Saint John's Cemetery, down the street at the corner of Central and Lafayette.
Would you like to plan ahead for your future and save your family from facing these choices while they are grieving? Funeral and burial arrangements can be made in advance and secured in the church office for the future. Visit our cemetery page to learn more about your options with Saint John's Cemetery.
