The mission of Life's Celebrations is to provide a place where people from any walk of life, of any faith, or of no particular faith, can be permitted to celebrate life's most special occasions including weddings, births and passing of loved ones, in a way that is most appropriate for them, so long as that expression does not impinge upon the rights or freedoms of others and is in accordance with the laws of the state/city. We do this by recognizing the importance of maintaining open hearts and minds, and embracing any individuals or couples, no matter his or her spiritual background, because of the belief that we are all children of the same universe.
Life’s Celebrations started in 2013 and is operated by Rev. Cris E. Hanna, an ordained minister and Wedding Officiant in the Universal Life Church. Rev. Hanna was honored with a Doctor of Divinity (D.Div.) by the Universal Life Church Monastery.
The Universal Life Church Monastery strongly believes in the rights of all people from all faiths to practice their beliefs, regardless of what those beliefs are; so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others and are within the law of the land and one’s conscience.
Rev. Hanna has been married for 31 years, is a retired member of the United States Air Force and an active volunteer with several community organizations.
Many states allow for just about anyone to become ordained online and perform a wedding. Could be a friend, a family member, or even a co-worker. And of course they're not going to charge you, right?
I get about a dozen frantic phones every year, because that friend or family member realizes what they've gotten themselves into. But why not start out right from the beginning and avoid the stress?
