Our mission is to facilitate individuals to celebrate key life events in an inclusive manner. Regardless of their gender, orientation, ability, religion, and/or cultural beliefs. The Irish Ethical Celebrant Society is Ireland’s national professional association for ethical celebrants, which promotes a culture of excellence and community amongst its members.
The values of the Irish Ethical Celebrant Society which drive our behaviours and decisions are based upon equality, respect, openness and clarity. Our core belief is that every person is worthy of respect and deserves to be treated with dignity. The Irish Ethical Celebrant Society offer a bespoke service in response to the needs of a modern Irish society.
The Irish Ethical Celebrant Society aims to create, nurture, and inspire ethical communities. This is to foster a world that is democratic, compassionate, just, and sustainable. We are an inclusive organisation that embraces the diversity of our membership and our clients, and focuses on human goodness and building relationships with each other.
We recognise the worth and dignity of all people regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, economic status, level of ability, or religious beliefs.
Each Member advocates for reason, compassion, and rational thinking so we can progress as individuals, communities, and a world.
We act to elicit the best in others and thereby in ourselves, celebrating with and supporting each other through life.
We realise the full capacity of our human spirit when we stimulate our thinking with new insights and inspirations.
To ensure the highest quality and professionalism of our celebrants, members of the Irish Ethical Celebrants Society receive continuous training and support. Only celebrants who carry the IECS logo are members of the Irish Ethical Celebrants Society.
