The Catholic Cemeteries Association is committed to ministering and assisting families before, during and after the death of a loved one. Our Catholic faith gives us the strength and courage to help us in our grieving and reminds us of the promise of the spiritual reunion with our loved ones.
In a comfortable and supportive environment, you’ll find a warm fellowship of people with similar grief experiences. Come. Listen. Be in the presence of those who understand.
3rd Sunday of each month 3:00pm – 4:00pm
(4th Sunday if the 3rd Sunday is a holiday)
We offer a comfortable, private, and encouraging environment where you are free to explore your grief and all the you are feeling. Meetings are open discussion, surrounding a monthly topic or whatever is on your heart. Come and be in the presence of those who understand.
Your RSVP is greatly appreciated but not required. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Rhonda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-930-4866.

Support Group Dates
Catholic Cemeteries Association, in accordance with guidelines set by the CDC , the State of Ohio, and the Diocese of Cleveland regarding COVID-19 protocols will no longer require masks/facial coverings of our office visitors and our In-Office Grief Support attendees. We do, however, strongly suggest that those not yet vaccinated or who are otherwise vulnerable, continue to wear a face mask. CCA will continue to follow strong hygiene practices and encourage all who are ill to stay at home. Our Virtual Grief Support Group and our monthly grief support e-newsletter are excellent alternatives for individuals who are not able to join us in person for Grief Support.
This new support group, hosted via Zoom, covers the same material as our in-person Sunday Grief Support Groups.
This annual Mass is celebrated in honor of those who have passed away within the past year. Mass is typically scheduled on (or near) the feast day of Saint Joseph on March 19th.
