In his Apostolic Exhortation Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis referred to the Church as a field hospital, recognizing and caring for those who are wounded. One of the greatest wounds a person can suffer is the pain of divorce or separation. It affects not only the persons involved, but also children, other family members, friends and co-workers.
Fresh Start: A Healing Ministry for the Divorced and Separated is a journey to help those who are divorced, separated or remarried outside the Church. Share your experiences and dialogue with others in a confidential group setting.
I am not a St. Paul parishioner. Can I still come?
Yes! The program is open to all who are divorced or separated, not just St. Paul parishioners. We encourage you to reach out to others who may be interested.
