In this article the convocations of Canterbury & York are considering what form of burial service is appropriate for people who die by suicide. If a person completes suicide it is considered a Á¨grievous sinÁø unless the victim is mentally disordered. Most people do not agree with this, for who is to justify between suicides that merit moral condemnation & those that do not? In conclusion, the church decides that no suicide should be denied the right to a religious service. (CH)
