While grief is a very private experience, people 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.

Due to current low registration the Bereavement Support Group scheduled to start on September 4th has been postponed.  The ministry will reschedule the next series of ministry meetings.

For more information, please call Fr. Brian Smail, O.F.M. at 212-736-8500, Ext. 204.

Interested persons should be at least three months into the grieving process.

Pre-registration is required.
