PARISH-BASED SUPPORT GROUP

FOR SEPARATED AND DIVORCED CATHOLICS 

+++++++++++

12 WEEK SUPPORT GROUP

SURVIVING DIVORCE: HOPE AND HEALING FOR THE CATHOLIC FAMILY

(OFFERED IN MONMOUTH AND OCEAN COUNTIES

IN THE FALL AND IN THE SPRING OF EVERY YEAR)

The program is called “Surviving Divorce:  Hope and Healing for the Catholic Family”. It is a DVD series developed by Rose Sweet, a dynamic Catholic author and speaker who has developed this series to help Catholics and their families heal from divorce!  That program can be found at www.catholicsdivorce.com. We have been using her program since 2011.  We have watched it helped hundreds of people, including us. As Facilitators, we have also attended a 12-week and benefited greatly from attendance.  We wanted to pay it forward and bring it to you! Each one of us has been personally trained and certified to facilitate this program!

There are 12 DVDs, one for each week, which last approximately 30 minutes, and then we have open discussion on a variety of topics such as grief, anger, depression, forgiveness, dealing with your ex and your family, how to tell the children and help them cope, how to navigate the Court system, your finances and more. 

Anyone that needs help in finding peace, power and healing from divorce, whether you are separated, considering divorce, or are already divorced, will discover how to work through emotions and pain, and experience personal healing and hope.

"Michele, It's been a little over a year since my wife told me she wanted a divorce

and I went from a basket case to a man surrounded by some of the greatest people on earth. 

Thank you for your ministry." - Participant

Testimonial from a Participant of the Surviving Divorce Program:

Hi Michele, I just want you to know that I really think you help people. So many people who go through divorce feel like they have been disposed of. What a horrible feeling for anyone to have to endure! It is so important that people in pain have social contact with other people who care and understand. Like we have been taught in church, as disciples of Jesus we need to see Him in others. I love what you are doing. I truly believe Jesus is in it with you every step of the way!!!
