Topics discussed: The process of divorce, self-image, stress, anger, blame and guilt, loneliness, forgiveness, happiness and pathways to growth. Though the text was written for Catholics, in our several years of this ministry at Saint Paul we have met people of many faith traditions who have benefitted from attending the small group sessions of Divorce and Beyond. Everyone adapts the book to suit his/her situation.
DIVORCE and BEYOND
New Divorce & Beyond Sessions beginning Tuesday, September 9thth. This a 10-week program that offers hope and healing to men and women who are already divorced or have filed for divorce. The participants work through the time of grieving a significant loss with trained facilitators who know and understand their frustrations and offer guidance using the workbook, DIVORCE AND BEYOND by Brother James Greteman, CSC, Leon Haverkamp, M.S.W. and Elsie P. Radtke, Family Ministries Office of the Archdiocese of Chicago (the workbook is available at the sessions for $10.00).
