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-Office Monthly Grief Support Groups

We offer a comfortable, private, and encouraging environment where you are free to explore your grief and all 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. Our monthly support group meets every 3rd Sunday of each month - 4th Sunday if the 3rd Sunday is a holiday - from 3 pm to 4 pm.

Your RSVP is greatly appreciated but not required. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Rhonda at or 216-930-4866.
