While grief is a very private experience, those who have lost loved ones can benefit from the witness and support of others who have lost someone special in their lives.
The St. Francis Bereavement Ministry offers an opportunity for the bereaved to connect with others who grieve, and to seek a path of healing as they come to terms with their loss.
A Bereavement Support Group will meet on eight Tuesdays from:
February 12 to April 2,
from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.
Please call Fr. Brian Smail, O.F.M. at 212-736-8500, Ext. 204 to inquire. Interested persons should be at least six months into the grieving process.
Pre-registration is required.
In anticipation of the Feast of our Lady of Lourdes (February 11th) we will be celebrating special Mass of the Anointing of the Sick on Saturday, February 9th at 11:00 AM
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick brings the presence and healing power of Christ to those who are ill. We invite all who are sick and those who would like to pray for them to come to this celebration.
Is anyone among you sick? They should summon the elders of the church, and they should pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up. If they have committed any sins, they will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. (James 5:14-16)
