Surviving Divorce - A care program for divorced & separated Catholics
Surviving Divorce is a program centered on twelve professionally mastered DVD shows featuring twelve REAL LIFE divorce stories of hope and healing. These individuals are young and old; their spouse left some of them. Others felt forced to file divorce. Regardless, no one wanted to end up this way. They are worried about their kids, money, the future, what others will say, and what the church says about state of life. Can they go to Communion? Are they excommunicated? Do they have to get an annulment? These are questions they had, and ones others may have, too. Following each DVD there is time for discussion, reflection and support. Each week covers topics of shock, denial, anger, grief, guilt, forgiveness, money, the courts, the children, the ex-spouse, annulment, dating, sexuality, spirituality, remarriage or staying single, and much more. Whether you were divorced ten days ago or ten years ago, the program offers valuable insight for everyone.
The group will meet at Holy Family on Thursdays at 7 p.m. through mid-December. Contact Christine Shafer, director of pastoral care and faith formation, for more information. Please pre-register for childcare.
