Bereavement Support

Bereavement Services

Calvary Hospital provides bereavement support for adults, children and teens who have lost loved ones at Calvary Hospital or Calvary@Home, and those from the community at large who have lost someone because of illness, accidents, violence, or any other cause. Groups are offered at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx and in downtown Brooklyn at St. Joseph’s High School.

Groups are open to all and are free of charge.

The Hospital offers age-appropriate “Precious Moments” support groups for children, ages 6 through 11, and for adolescents, ages 12 to 18. Groups for children and teens take place in the Bronx and in downtown Brooklyn.


To attend any of the groups, prospective participants must first meet with one of the group facilitators before attending their first session.

All support groups are led by experienced Calvary Hospital staff.
Registration in advance of participation is required.
