“In the heart of every caregiver is a knowing that we are all connected. As I do for you, I do for me.”    ~  Tia Walker

If you are a caregiver and would like to learn more about resources to help you and your loved one as well as to find support from others in a faith-based environment, this is the group for you. Please come to the next Caregiver Support Group on Thursday, August 13 from 11:30am-12:30pm in the Ministry Center Meeting Room.   If you have any questions, or if you are unable to leave your loved one alone to attend, please call Mary Alice Coghlan at 201-652-4305.


'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.’

When someone we love has been taken from us, we often find ourselves dealing with change and transition.  
Many offer their help, but do not always understand the loss we are feeling.  Bereavement support groups
are one way to find support from others who are going through the same process.  We cannot go around the
grief process, over it, or under it. We need to go through it; we need to be good to ourselves, putting balance
into our lives through prayer, reading, resting, relaxation and work. Grief takes time. Unrealistic expectations
undermine the healing process.
 The parishes of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, St. Gabriel and St. Catharine are jointly sponsoring a Bereavement 
Support Group which will meet on Wednesday evenings in the fall at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Ridgewood. 
You need not be a parishioner to attend. The group will meet from 7:30-9:00 pm and run for nine consecutive
weeks beginning on September 23 and ending on November 18.
 Pre-registration is required - please contact Drew Rodney at 
201-214-4637 or  All calls are confidential.

The St. Cajetan Ministry Network (parishes of St. Catharine’s and St. Anne’s) invites all unemployed/underemployed men & women to join their ministry which provides support through prayer & helpful guidance in the job search process.  If you have any questions or would like to participate in the Ministry please call: Ed Grzesiak 201-321-5144, Eamon Jennings 917-841-2558, John Lederer 201-286-9354, Lou Cuomo 201-657-3838, or Steve Zmuda 201-819-9026.  We continue to seek possible employment opportunities.
