Beginning Experience Ministry Weekend Retreat

Fri, 5/1

Beginning Experience

The purpose of the Beginning Experience (B.E.) ministry is to help divorced, separated and widowed men and women heal the grief of their losses and free them once again to love themselves, others and God.  These individuals, in turn, offer a better quality of life to all those with whom they come in contact.

The peer ministers in the B.E. ministry are “wounded healers” - specially trained and certified men and women who are themselves widowed, separated or divorced, but further along in the grieving process.  The Beginning Experience Weekend is a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon program for adults grieving the loss of a love relationship who are ready to come to terms with their losses and begin to move forward with their lives. This is the core program and the foundation of the B.E. ministry.

The next B.E. Weekend to be offered in the Diocese of Grand Rapids is May 1-3, 2015.  Please assist those who could benefit from this ministry. Learn more at
