Support Groups

CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUP
“In the heart of every caregiver is a knowing that we are all connected. As I do for you, I do for me.”    ~  Tia Walker

If you are a caregiver and would like to learn more about resources to help you and your loved one as well as to find support from others in a faith-based environment, this is the group for you. Please come to the next Caregiver Support Group on Thursday, September 4 from 11:30am-12:30pm in the Ministry Center first floor Meeting Room.   If you have any questions, or if you are unable to leave your loved one alone to attend, please call Mary Alice Coghlan at 201-652-4305.

                                                                    BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP
                                              'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’

The parishes of St. Catharine, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and St. Gabriel are jointly sponsoring a Bereavement Support Group which will meet on Wednesday evenings in the fall in the Ministry Cetner at St. Catharine. You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group will meet from 7:30am-9pm and run for nine consecutive weeks beginning on September 17th and ending on November 12th.

The intent of these meetings is to support one another during the beginning stages of the grief process. Only those people who are presently going through grief or have experienced loss can relate.  Being a part of a grief group is a way of helping others which can contribute to our own healing. In this group, we stress confidentiality and mutual support. There are no "shoulds" in grief. We let others who have gone through the grief process help us understand
and deal with our grief. We learn to lean into our pain. It cannot be outrun. We cannot go around it, over it, or under it. We need to go through it; we need to be good to ourselves, putting balance into our lives through prayer, reading, resting, relaxation and work. Grief takes time. Unrealistic expectations undermine the healing process.  Please contact Monica Seibert for more information and/or to register at 201-652-3388 or ms.seibert@icloud.com.
