Bereavement


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.

Monthly Sunday Support Groups

We offer monthly Grief Support Groups that meet for one hour on the third Sunday of each month (4th Sunday if it falls on a holiday) in select cemetery offices.
