Life as a Humanist Celebrant

Pat Jay

10:00 for 10:30

Beechwood School, Tunbridge Well

Thank you Delta Kappa Gamma for inviting me to lead a discussion about Humanist Ceremonies I’ll touch on the what? who? where? why? of my work and experiences as local Humanist Celebrant and   any other questions that arise.
    You don’t have to be a humanist to have a humanist ceremony!  Just to want a warm, meaningful occasion, professionally conducted and reflecting your own wishes, based on life rather than a religious text. Humanist .
     Celebrants create, write and conduct ceremonies to mark the big moments in life:  Namings, weddings, funerals, memorials.

I look forward to meeting you!
