What Is A Repast (or Repass)?
When it comes to dealing with the death of a loved one, things can definitely get a little hard. It can be incredibly stressful to not only have to deal with your loss, but also to plan out the funeral and the reception that follows. More than often, people typically find solace in being surrounded by their loved ones. It’s a bittersweet situation when you get to see your friends and family but it’s under the circumstances of someone passing away.
After your funeral is taken care of and the last word has been said, what follows is the funeral reception, which is also known as the repast. The repast, or repass, is a gathering that follows a funeral service and is often when food is served. It can be either private, open only to the closest of family and friends. Alternatively, an invitation can be made available to anyone who is interested in attending.
A repast is a time to eat and celebrate not only life itself but also the life of the recently deceased. People typically make toasts and say extra words about their loss. Losing a friend or a family member can be hard, but a repast is designed to help you start the process of moving on, as well as help you deal with the loss.
