2022 Jazz Funeral

jazz musicians on a street corner in New Orleans

Our Home Universalist Unitarian Church and the Rev. Melanie Morel-Ensminger are inviting UUJXN, as well as UUC Tupelo and UUC Oxford, for a jazz funeral to lay to rest the year 2022. Let’s get the new year 2023 started by laying our burdens down from 2022!

This promises to be a musically rich and engaging service–and you may want to dress like you are going to a funeral-New Orleans style!

For in-person attendees, we will have small pieces of paper that we will be able to burn in a burning bowl.

For those attending online, you may want an envelope and paper to write on as a way to “lay to rest” 2022.

Reverend Melanie Morel-Ensminger is a New Orleans native and has been a UU minister for close to 30 years. She has served Our Home as a part-time minister for 4 years.
