The Bereavement Ministry offers information and encourages understanding, acceptance and growth
to those who have recently experienced the death of a loved one. An eight-week support group, facilitated by trained leaders, is offered annually.
Are you experiencing grief after the death of a loved one?
These dark, dank winter days only add to your feeling of loss.
Sometime it is helpful to find comfort and support as you grieve with others who have been through a similar experience.
Holy Innocents is offering a Bereavement Support Group for anyone laden by grief.
The group will meet on Thursday evenings at 7 pm beginning on February 23.
It is not limited to parishioners of Holy Innocents, all are welcome. We do need a minimum
of 6 people, so please feel free to offer this information to others who might benefit from participation in the meetings.
If you are interested or would like additional information, please contact the parish office.
In November we also celebrate a Memorial Mass for parishioners and loved ones who died in the past year.
Communion For The Homebound:
If you have a family or neighbors whom you know would like to receive Communion and/or have a visit from our priests
or a Eucharistic Minister, please call the Parish Office at 769-0025 and leave their name, address and phone number.
The Interfaith Food Pantry, located at the Methodist Church in Pleasantville, collects food and money for needy families
in our community. Food is collected throughout the month at Holy Innocents and is organized and stored at the Food Pantry.
The Food Pantry is very grateful to the parishioners of Holy Innocents for their continued generosity. Our parish continues to
provide food items to those who are in need. All food donations must be delivered to the Parish Office during office hours.
Do not leave donations in the entrances to the Church. Please check expiration dates on all donations.
All food must be in their original packaging. NO PERISHABLE ITEMS.
During Advent, parishioners donate gifts for the needy families. The 2022 GIVING TREE donations
will benefit our Christmas Outreach with Hearts & Homes for Refugees of Westchester.
