East chapel

The east chapel has a modern design, with upholstered linked seating, allowing flexibility and seating for about 130 people. The catafalque has double curtains, net and velvet, that can be drawn to fully or partially obscure the coffin at committal.

West chapel

The west chapel has a traditional design, with a vaulted ceiling and wooden pews. The catafalque descends upon committal, unless you prefer the coffin to remain. There is seating for about 80 people.
