When a marriage ends it is more than a separation of two people. It is a death of an important part of their lives. The grieving process of a divorce is unique to each individual. A divorce signifies the failure of a relationship, not that the individuals themselves are failures.
Divorce and Beyond is a program designed to offer support, fellowship and respect to our brothers and sisters experiencing or having completed divorce. Come share and know that others have gone through the same things as you. Know that you are loved and welcomed as part of our parish family.
Three trained parishioners will help you through the journey of initial stress, anger and guilt to ultimate forgiveness, happiness and growth. The sessions will cover experiences and emotions that divorcing people go through and will discuss activities for making divorce a growing experience.
Everyone is very welcome to this eight week support group, no matter where you are in the divorce process. It is important to know you are not alone. Participants are encouraged to attend all eight sessions.
Friday evenings from 7-9pm in the parish center: Sept. 13, Sept. 27, Oct. 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Nov. 22 , Dec. 6th and Dec. 20.
Program book is $10. To register, drop off money and your contact info to the parish center office in a sealed envelope marked Divorce & Beyond by Sept. 9. Any questions, contact Ann Marie at 708-784-9311.
