Diocese of Olympia church’s new online funeral service offers memorial…

Image courtesy of St. Luke’s[Episcopal News Service] As St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Renton, Washington, rapidly transitioned to online services during the early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak in the Seattle area, its rector soon saw an unfilled need. While livestream Morning Prayer provided a suitable, albeit short-term, substitute for the usual Sunday Eucharist, there wasn’t a readily available blueprint for mourning and honoring the dead.“As we were putting those things together, we had a person die,” the church’s rector, the Rev. Kevin Pearson, told Episcopal News Service. “And we were starting to think about – well, what do we do? And what do [the relatives] do?’ … We’re going to wait six months? Or, we don’t really know how long. So all of it started coming together at once.”The solution that Pearson and his staff developed is an example of the new ways of doing church that are emerging amid the devastation and everyday disruption of COVID-19. Physical distancing restrictions mean that many people at the end of their lives – whether they have COVID-19 or not – are dying alone, and some priests have adapted the sacrament of last rites to be administered by phone or FaceTime.Funerals are trickier, given that they typically involve large groups congregating in one place. Many churches are postponing them indefinitely or limiting them to graveside services for a few immediate family members. And while some are performing them online on a case-by-case basis for parishioners, St. Luke’s has developed a streamlined platform for designing and organizing online funerals and is offering the services to anyone, anywhere, who wants them.Launched this week, the service offers families an Episcopal funeral rite for their loved one, performed by Pearson at St. Luke’s and livestreamed. For the $750 basic funeral service, families can choose the readings and gather on a dedicated webpage to view the service live, chat with each other and share photos and remembrances. For additional fees, many options for customizing the funeral are available, including a choice of music and performers, reflections or performances by loved ones, a full Zoom reception and a remembrance video.This sample page shows what an online funeral setup looks like. Image courtesy of St. Luke’sFor Pearson, who has a doctorate in liturgy, the idea of doing virtual funerals was initially not appealing.“I care a lot about how people gather, and quality of ritual,” he told ENS. “And so I was particularly feeling a little – what many clergy might feel, like, ‘This is faux. This isn’t the real thing.’ And I don’t think it’s the intended thing, but I am seeing now how in many situations the real thing is not being done. … Very often it’s not possible. So do you just not do anything? So this is at least something, and it’s powerful.”Concerns about the pastoral needs of those who had lost a loved one outweighed the initial discomfort at the idea of digitizing an ancient ritual. Pearson, a former chaplain at Seattle Children’s Hospital, has been “around a lot of grief” and knows how important rituals are in that first week or so after a death.“It’s very familiar turf to me,” he said. “This is so crucial, that there is a window of emotional time that needs to be responded to.”The sanctuary of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. Photo courtesy of St. Luke’sAs Pearson and his staff were developing the online funeral platform, his friend’s brother in Ohio died. Wanting to see how an online funeral would work in real life, he made the family an offer.“There was no way for people to gather. And I said, ‘Hey, we’re working on this idea. Could we use your situation as a test?’”The family accepted the offer, and the experience exceeded Pearson’s expectations – so much that he stopped referring to the idea as a “virtual funeral,” because nothing about it felt virtual.“It was very, very moving,” Pearson said. “The family was amazed. They were in New York, they were in California, they were out in the sticks in Ohio, they were in Columbus, and we went to the Zoom reception, people were wiping their eyes – I mean, they were just so thankful. It was a real funeral.”Pearson increasingly realized that the online funeral could be more than just a temporary substitute for an in-person funeral, noticing that although it had its drawbacks, it also had advantages.“While it isn’t anything like gathering normally in one place, there are actually some things that are nicer about it,” he told ENS.At crowded funerals, for example, it can be difficult to connect with everyone. Although Zoom removes the in-person element and the spontaneity of one-on-one conversations, it can allow for more intentional time with each other.“I would say that was actually – in my experience – that was better than being in person,” Pearson said.Perhaps more significantly, Pearson realized that the benefits of an online funeral went beyond the pandemic – that it could offer families who could not afford to travel to attend or even hold a funeral the chance to mourn together in a dignified way.“This kind of came out of our times, and then as we got more deeply into it, we realized that this isn’t just a COVID thing. People don’t do funerals for a whole lot of reasons.”The church kept the basic fee affordable, but high enough to cover the overhead costs associated with producing the funerals, like staff time and tech resources. Pearson is planning to offer an option to donate to cover the costs of funerals for those who may not be able to afford them.Pearson expects that most funerals will be for people not associated with the parish and recognizes the potentially sensitive issue of serving people in another parish or diocese.“I asked my bishop about our services crossing jurisdictions, and he didn’t see an issue,” Pearson said. “Nevertheless, I want to be especially sensitive to the pastoral needs of the people we serve and, in my mind, that means they’re being supported by their local clergy. I don’t see our service as superseding the local pastoral role. It is simply something we are able to offer and that fulfills a real and imminent need.”Pearson knows that an online funeral isn’t for everyone, and even he was skeptical about its suitability at first. But as to the question of whether it is still a “real” funeral, Pearson now has a clear answer.“I may never have considered doing this in an online way without the unique circumstances that we’re living with,” Pearson told ENS. “If someone had told me, ‘What about an online funeral?’ I would have said, ‘That’s crazy.’ And yet, having seen it, done it, it was all real.” Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

House in El Sesteo / Arkosis

Fernanda Matamoros, Cristian Alvarez, Carlos Jiménez, Jeffrey CuberoArchitect In Charge:Iván DelgadoCity:San RamonCountry:Costa RicaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Roberto D´AmbrosioText description provided by the architects. The house intends to reflect the general spirit of the site as understood from its history, in this case it relates more to its origin as a “sesteo” than to its more ostentatious present.  A sesteo was the place where oxcart drivers would spend the night after a long journey; this name lingered on and was given to the current upper-middle class community.Save this picture!© Roberto D´AmbrosioFantastic Realism allows the argument to be a real fact, to which “an illusory or fantastic ingredient” is added.  An imaginary archeology is the excuse to unearth ancient walls, traces of a possible past that will support the present-future of the house.Save this picture!© Roberto D´AmbrosioThese concrete walls are the monolithic base and the conceptual opposite of a collection of materials that show their industrial edges and assemblage, as a reference to the continuous bricolage that takes place in the majority of Costa Rican neighborhoods, here material progress means not only to acquire more appliances or cars, but also construction materials that are set on top of each other in apparent disorder, their individuality as single industrial pieces still readable… added space; alteration here means expansion most of the time. This procedure could be regarded as a meta language, not because it describes architectural language but because it precedes it. It also implies reducing the mediation of constructional lexicon and focusing on space as a direct consequence of the accumulation of materials.Save this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Plan 2In practical terms, the cost of the house was slightly under $ 600 per square meter, the bottom of the intermediate price range in the country, mainly due to the use of inexpensive materials and progressive finishes.Save this picture!© Roberto D´AmbrosioAnother interest is the paradoxical uninhabited architecture which remains empty while the owners work to pay for it, a distinct phenomenon in Costa Rican middle class. As a response the house lights up in particular ways in the mornings and the afternoons when the owners are present. The challenge of using west and east as the source of light is chosen with a deep and staggered layout in order to identify the most recognizably distinct lights from each other.Save this picture!Long SectionIn only 105 m2 one can transit through the house in parallel to the seriated planes while diagonal views expand space. A continuous going forth and retracing one´s steps at significant points occurs inside. Outside, the house needs to interweave with its immediate neighbors, thus it recedes in order to discover a zigzagging profile of the house on the south. On the opposite side, a vacant lot, the house offers a separation and a geometry that resonates with that of the existing house as an invitation to the next architect to work under similar principles.Save this picture!© Roberto D´AmbrosioProject gallerySee allShow lessMelike Altınışık Architects Wins First Mention in Competition for Kızılırmak Bridge …Architecture News7 Futuristic Fabrications Leading Us Towards a Newer ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2016 Photographs Projects Save this picture!© Roberto D´Ambrosio+ 32 Share CopyAbout this officeArkosisOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsSan RamonCosta RicaPublished on March 26, 2016Cite: “House in El Sesteo / Arkosis” 26 Mar 2016.

Limerick redundancy row ends in victory for workers

In September, eight SIPTU members started a daily picket of the school and complex. Advertisement Previous articleLimerick’s retail occupancy above national averageNext articleCounting the cost admin Twittercenter_img A TWO year battle has ended in victory for a group of Limerick workers with the news that they will get the €80,000 redundancy money that the Labour court ruled they were entitled to.Eight unionised staff at St Enda’s Sports Complex were awarded the money two years ago when they were made redundant from the sports complex, which is attached to St Enda’s Community School in Southill.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Linkedin Now Public Expenditure MInister, Brendan Howlin, has written to local TD’s involved in getting payment for the workers to say that as it is a “unique situation”, the decision has finally been made to write the cheque for the redundancy payments.“It has been a very hard road for us but we’re over the line now,” said Ray Healy, spokesperson for the for St. Enda’s workers.“We want to thank our union,the media and the TD’s who helped us. It’s not a lot of money when you’ve lost your jobs but it’s the principle. What’s the point in having a Labour Court if you’re not going to honour what that court decides?”Deputy Kieran O’Donnell (FG) said he is “delighted. They fought a hard battle and I want to congratulate them and their families. They’ve shown great courage”.Deputy Willie O’Dea (FF) said that payment was promised last March “yet nothing happened. The workers had to resort to protesting in hail and rain for the last number of months for the Government to finally pay the money they were rightfully owed.”Deputy Jan O’Sullivan (Lab) said she is “very pleased that they will be paid. It has been a long road involving a lot of meetings and negotiations”.Above: St.Enda’s sports complex. Print Facebooklast_img read more
