Bereavement Committee

A group of caring parishioners provides assistance and support for individuals and family members who have experienced the death of a loved one.  Monthly gatherings are held in St. John's School to assist people in addressing their loss and grief.  When there is a death in the family, a member of the committee is available to be present to them to provide spiritual support and comfort in their loss.  This is also a time to assist the family in planning the funeral liturgy.

For more information, please contact Sr. Ellen McCarthy at St. John's Rectory (716) 937-6959.
