The Catholic’s Divorce Survival Guide program is based on the teachings of the Catholic Church and open to anyone who needs comfort, counsel, and clarity after a divorce.

“Going through my divorce was one of the saddest, most difficult times in my life.  One of the best things I did for myself during that time was to participate in a workshop like CDSG.  It was during this time that I embraced the spiritual truths that God was still with me and that His love for me never fails; I learned that I was not alone in the many struggles, emotional and spiritual, that I faced during that time; and I found comfort and solace in my Catholic faith.  I encourage anyone, those recently divorced and those who may have been divorced for quite some time, to consider participating in this workshop.  You will gain valuable personal insights and learn practical ways to deal with the challenges faced by those who are divorced.  You will also learn, and hopefully even be able to embrace, that there is life after divorce.  Most importantly, you will learn how growing your relationship with Christ can comfort your sorrows, ease your burdens, and refresh your soul.”    —Theresa Murphy, CDSG co-facilitator for the upcoming 8-week program offered at St. Patrick.
