General Bereavement Support Groups

Bereavement support groups typically meet in a parish setting with varied formats. The facilitator’s goal is to provide a safe place where the bereaved can share their experiences with others, learn about the process of grief and be supported by their Church family during a difficult time. Bereavement support groups meet within the four counties of the Archdiocese on the parish level. 

For the locations & times of the general bereavement support groups, please contact the Office of Family Life Ministries at (973) 497-4327.
