How We Honor Religious Traditions at Cypress Lawn

At Cypress Lawn, there is no celebration of life that is exactly the same because there are no two people on this planet who are exactly alike.

We take deep pride in being able to talk with families and learn what made their loved one unique so we can customize their funeral or memorial service and share the story of their life in an unforgettable way.

We know religion plays a large role in the lives of many Bay Area families, and we understand just how important it is for specific customs, rituals, and traditions to be incorporated into a loved one’s final farewell.

We also understand just how critical it is to get it right. This is an important moment in your family’s life. There are no “do-overs” when it comes to a funeral, and we take your needs and wishes seriously. We pledge to you that all of our staff members will provide the utmost respect and dignified services for your loved one at all times.

At Cypress Lawn, it’s our honor to serve families of all nationalities, religions, and ethnicities. We offer unique expertise through our diverse team of caring professionals who’ve been helping families from all walks of life for decades. They’re familiar with many of the rituals and traditions that are so deeply valued by Bay Area families, and they’re able to handle all of the details so that you can focus on healing.

We also understand that being able to feel heard and understood could be a concern for your family, specifically if you have loved ones who feel more comfortable speaking in other languages. We have many bilingual members of our team who can provide additional assistance to your family, including in Spanish and Mandarin, so they feel comforted and welcomed at Cypress Lawn.

We are able to incorporate special elements to a service to bring additional comfort to your family. Whether you would like a clergyperson or a spiritual guide to preside over a service or if you’d like specific prayers or Scriptures to be printed on cards for your guests, we’re able to coordinate these details to best accommodate your family’s needs.

If you’re unsure where to even begin planning, we’re here to help with that too. We offer Bay Area families many resources about how to plan a service that aligns with their vision for an unforgettable tribute. We also offer additional material on our blog about funeral traditions for Chinese, Filipino, and Mexican families.

At Cypress Lawn, we encourage your family to ask us questions, and our team welcomes feedback. We care deeply about getting this pivotal moment in your family’s life right — especially when it comes to incorporating religious elements into your loved one’s service.
