A Proven Program for Those Experiencing Divorce
When a marriage ends it is more than a separation of two people – it is a death of an important part of their lives. To help those going through this painful grieving process, St. Gabriel’s is offering 10 bi-weekly gatherings for both the newly divorced and those going through the divorce process even years later. This guided program will allow you to share experiences and work through the emotions of divorce with others in the same situation. Divorce and Beyond is a faith-based program designed to encourage each person to move beyond the pain of divorce. Participants will use the Divorce and Beyond outline in practice since 1983 along with other materials.
2017-18 GATHERING DATES: Wednesdays, 7 – 8:30 p.m., Oct. 4 and 18, Nov. 15, Dec. 6, Jan. 3 and 24, Feb. 7 and 21, and Mar. 7 and 21.
Materials fee: $20 per person due at the first session.
Please note: Confidentiality will be respected both in registration and throughout the program. If you are interested in attending, please contact Lisa Gorton at the parish office – 639-6712 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
