Hello all. During our annual meeting of the parish, our priest brought up a topic and I wanted to know if you all heard of it. Some Orthodox formed burial societies because funeral homes have taken over the religious job that should be done by the Church community.
This was done in ancient times (Im in life insurance, which is the modern decendant of them). I was wondering if you guys have heard of them, or are members yourselves, or if there is some information on it.
