For The Bereaved


RESOURCES: Grieving the death of a loved one can be a long and painful journey. There is no time table for the mourning that one feels. Grief work is the process that involves learning to live with the emptiness, creating meaning out of the loss and rejoining life to live more openly and fully. There are a number of grief support groups throughout the diocese.
Contact Maryanne Hubert, Director of Bereavement Support Services at the Catholic Cemeteries for information about grief support groups and current program schedule of events  or  (716)873-5680.
