The Loss of Loved Ones & Funerals at St. John Bosco Parish



Recognizing that the loss of a loved one can be an extremely difficult and challenging time, we at St. John Bosco Parish want to provide whatever assistance we can to all those experiencing such loss. Through conversations, meetings, and certainly through prayer, we hope to provide helpful support and guidance for those in need.

If you or your family have lost a loved one and would like to reach out to a priest for guidance, please call the parish to set up a meeting or simply begin a conversation. The Parish Office can be reached at 203-488-1607.

In addition, if you will be having the Funeral Mass* of a loved one at Saint John Bosco Parish, we invite you to use our Rite of Christian Burial Planning Booklet. This packet will assist you in making choices regarding the readings, music, and participation of family at the Mass.

*Due to an increasing amount of disturbing incidents, our parish of St. John Bosco will only be scheduling Masses of Christian Burial arranged through the services of a Funeral Director. This policy will ensure that the  Mass will be celebrated in a manner that upholds the dignity and integrity of the Sacrament as well as the deceased loved one. The chosen Funeral Director will call the Parish Office to arrange for the Mass and burial. Thank you for your understanding!
