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.
In order to properly prepare for the updates to procedures for preparation and reception of Holy Communion to be implemented in our diocese by September 13, 2015, the following training sessions and parish workshops have been scheduled:

This year will be a journey of encounter, seeking truth, building virtue, promoting life, and discovering our capacity for great love and mercy. The format for High School Youth Nights includes a Light Up the World segment with dynamic co-hosts, guest speakers, relevant topics, and humor. Next, we will break into small groups where youth will have the same adult leader and group members all year long in order to form meaningful, faith-filled relationships where open and engaging discussion can take place. Last, we will close with an activity each night. Participation every week from 7pm to 8:30pm is essential. Youth leaders and youth will be asked to make a commitment toward weekly participation.
