Bereavement Ministry

The Bereavement Ministry provides the 9 week group program, New Day, twice a year, followed by a “reunion evening” 3 months after the program.

Additionally, our Pastoral Minster provides ongoing support to parishioners who have lost a loved one and helps guide them in their journey from grief to healing.



Are you grieving the loss of a loved one? 

St. Anthony Church is offering a 9 week program where individuals can share their grief story and learn about the grieving process and its tasks for healing. 

The sessions are conducted by trained facilitators, who have experienced grief in their lives, and are able to help you move through the tasks of grief. It is not a therapy session, but an opportunity to share with others who have experienced losses themselves.

The sessions will begin Wednesday March 25, 2020 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. 

There is no cost for this program.

Books used in the group are generously donated by Prospect Memorial Funeral Home.

Registration is needed, as space is limited. For information, please call Charlotte Scaviola 203-758-5711 or Claudette Decilla 203- 758-6283.
