Bereavement Support Group
In the tradition of Catholic Cemeteries being places of prayer and comfort, the Catholic Cemeteries
Association Bereavement Ministry invites you to spend some special time learning about the grief
process and sharing your loss. We offer, free of charge, an open bereavement support group session
that is held every 3rd Sunday of the month from 3:00 to 4:00 PM in the office. You do not need to
spend your Sunday afternoon alone - please come for an afternoon of prayer, support, and sharing.
