Circle of Hope

 Widow & Widowers
Social & Support Group

Our purpose is to furnish a setting where widowed people can be comfortable sharing their feelings and reach out to aid others that need help with a loss of a love one.

We promote opportunities for interaction with other widowed people meeting new friends and starting a journey to new life and provide bereavement information about support groups in the community. We offer spiritual, social, educational, and travel opportunities. We also help with Parish events when needed.

We are open to all widowed persons male and female, regardless of church affiliation.

Contact Rose DiBella if you would like additional information about this ministry
