We are glad you are considering having a memorial service or celebration of life for your loved one at First Parish in Lexington. Whether you are a member of First Parish or not, we welcome your inquiries about having a memorial service here.

When a family member dies, the minister and family make arrangements for a service. Together you’ll work out a time for the service that is suitable for family members, the minister, and the church, and design the memorial service in consultation with the Music Director and Organist.

To schedule a memorial service, please contact our minister minister@fplex.org, to talk about having the service at our church. For sanctuary and parish hall availability, please contact our Parish Administrator at admin@fplex.org.

A reception after a memorial service provides an opportunity to express condolences and exchange remembrances, and is a means of providing comfort and support. First Parish’s Memorial Services Coordinator will organize a reception if the family would like to have one.
