The parishes of St. Catharine, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and St. Gabriel jointly sponsor three to four Bereavement Support Groups per year. You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group meets for nine consecutive weeks. 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.
Pre-registration is required for all groups. Below is the schedule for 2017:
- The spring group will be held at St. Gabriel (Saddle River) and will meet on Tuesday mornings from 10:00-11:30 am beginning on April 25.
- The summer group will be held at St. Catharine (Glen Rock) - times and dates TBD.
- The fall group will be held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (Ridgewood) and will meet in the evening - times and dates TBD.
