January of next year, in collaboration with St. Joseph Parish, we will offer a 10 week Divorce Recovery Program.
Lisa Duffy is a Catholic author, speaker, and divorce recovery expert who experienced the tragedy of an unwanted divorce in the early 1990s. She has more than 20 years of personal experience helping people rebuild their lives after divorce. Lisa has written, A Road to Healing: Daily Reflections for Divorced Catholics, The Catholic Guide To Dating After Divorce, and Divorced Catholic, Now What?
Lisa has also written a parishbased divorce recovery program called, Journey of Hope. As she struggled with her own unwanted divorce, she was surprised at the lack of parish-based support ministries available. “A big misconception for Catholics who are going through a divorce this that they are not welcome. That’s such a tragic misunderstanding, she writes, because they walk away from their faith and leave the very thing that can save them from their pain and help heal them.” !
The course will be held on Thursday evenings at 7pm at St. Joseph Church and will consist of presentations by Lisa Duffy via DVD. We will have two facilitators, a man and a woman. This will be a 10 week series. More details to follow. Watch the bulletin for specifics.
