Weddings and Other Ceremonies

Lakehead Unitarian Fellowship is fortunate to have three Lay Chaplains who can officiate at weddings, memorials, child dedications, and other rites of passage or “milestone” ceremonies. You can count on the Lay Chaplain to recognize your personal beliefs and wishes when you plan the ceremony together; to be sensitive to the needs of others who will be attending; and to reflect Unitarian Universalist principles which respect each person’s values and convictions. The Lay Chaplain will work with you to create a meaningful ceremony at the place of your choice, at LUF or other local and regional locations. 

The fees in 2019 for Lay Chaplaincy services for non-members of LUF are as follows:

Wedding: $250.00, Rehearsal: $50.00 per hour or part, Funeral or Memorial Service: $250.00, Child Dedication: $125.00. Other “milestone ceremonies” can be negotiated with the Lay Chaplain. Travel expenses of 40 cents per kilometre will be charged for meetings and ceremonies outside Thunder Bay.

You can learn more about our Lay Chaplaincy services in the Lay Chaplaincy Brochure.

Our Lay chaplains can be reached through the LUF Office at 807-344-5980 or
