Youth of Saint Mark’s Visit Recompose: Human Composting Funeral Home

November 5, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5, meet at 12:30 p.m. to carpool

On the heels of All Hallow’s Eve and All Saints Day, the youth of Saint Mark’s will travel to Recompose, the world’s first human composting facility and funeral home. Recompose seeks to change the death care paradigm and is the result of years of extensive research with green death care experts, ecologists, biologists, legislators and more. No, we will not see dead bodies. Yes, we will think about death and dying, and it doesn’t have to be scary. Together we can buck the macabre death tropes of Halloween and instead explore the holiness of end of life practices and the care for creation implicit in this organization’s mission.

To participate, please submit this form. Youth will meet at 12:15 p.m. in Thomsen Chapel and then carpool to Recompose in South Seattle. Youth may be picked up at Saint Mark’s at 3:00 p.m. For more information or to chaperone, contact Rebekah Gilmore at: rgilmore@saintmarks.org
