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.

When does the next program begin?

Fresh Start begins its bi-weekly meetings on Thursday, September 7, 2017, 7:00-9:00 pm. Meetings continue until mid-March.

Where does the group meet?

Join us in the St. Paul School Building (room to be determined), 170 Grosse Pointe Blvd., Grosse Pointe Farms, MI  48236.

How do I register?

Contact Deacon Bill Jamieson at either bjamieson@stpaulonthelake.org or 313.885.8855 ext. 145.

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.

Join us for an Evening with Lisa Duffy!

Please RSVP by May 2 to Deacon Bill Jamieson or call the Parish Office at 313.885.8855.
