For many years, our parish has been fortunate to host support groups for those who have lost loved ones.  In addition to a group for the recently bereaved, we have another for parents who have lost a child, and a third for those who have lost a loved one to suicide.

Dr. Lou Sabatini has been involved in been working in bereavement ministry for over thirty years.  He has coordinated our groups and trained facilitators as well.

The groups meet for several weeks in the fall and spring in the parish center.  For a schedule and registration form, please call our office at (516) 731-6074; if you wish to speak to Dr. Sabatini, you may contact him at (516) 799-5873.

"Participating as a bereavement meeting facilitator has enabled me to use a very painful experience in my life in a positive way.  Navigating grief is a difficult process.  Speaking with others who also experienced loss was helpful to me in my journey.  Therefore, I welcomed the opportunity to help others navigating that same road."

"We find great consolation to be with people in the same situation as us. The special bereavement group for those who have lost a child gives you an outlet to talk about your child and share your feelings."
-- Marlene and Vic
