When a person dies, one will most often turn to a funeral director who can help with all the practical and legal about the death.
One of the things you agree with the funeral director is whether a priest is to be involved in the funeral.
If you want the Danish priest in Australia to participate, you must contact the pastor and arrange time and place for a conversation.
The Danish ritual is followed, but we gladly take into account local customs if they fall within the framework of evangelical Lutheran Christianity. The ritual can be in both Danish and English.
We ask for a $300 donation if you are not a member of the Danish Church in Australia. In addition, payment is made to a possible organist (fees may vary). If the funeral is to take place elsewhere than the church, for example in a crematorium, renting of this must also be paid in addition to.
