Ukrainian Orthodox Funerals

Ukrainian Orthodox Christian Funeral Services

  • Many Ukrainians in the United States adhere to the Orthodox Christian Church funeral customs.
  • A prayer service is held the eve of the funeral service at the funeral home or the church. Sometimes if the deceased is brought to the church, visitors will stay with them throughout the night. 
  • The next day, there will be a funeral service for the deceased either at the funeral home or the church. The casket will remain open during the funeral service.  If attendees bring flowers, it’s important that they bring an even number of them. A priest will lead the service and a choir is commonly in attendance.
  • After the funeral service, the casket in taken to a cemetery for a graveside service which likely will include prayers and singing. The casket will be open at the graveside service as well.
