Katherine Franta, Funeral Celebrant - EMAIL
Rev. Dr. Katherine Franta practices Holistic Ministry, which is tailored to each person no matter what his or her background. Holistic Ministry encompasses a study of world religion, philosophy, and spirituality. With an emphasis on experiential practice, Rev. Kate is able to provide spiritual counsel for those who are often overlooked: People without a traditional church. While she provides spiritual counsel for any life situation, her focus lies in assisting clients and families with ceremonies such as weddings and funerals/memorials, along with helping families make peace when a loved one is dying. This is accomplished by assessing the client’s needs, the family’s needs, and employing active, experiential processes for everyone willing to explore, grow, and greet peace with an open heart.
Rev. Kate is gifted in providing an open and creative space for families to plan a personalized ceremony that truly celebrates the gift of life. Rev. Kate encourages her clients to take an active role in their spiritual development by participating in the services.
Having earned her doctorate in 2005 in Holistic Ministry, Rev. Kate draws on extensive experience with cross-cultural and traditional spirituality, meditation, Shamanism, Buddhism, Christianity, secular philosophy, metaphysical studies, psychology, and quantum physics.
