The Catholic’s Divorce Survival Guide was created to bring hope and healing to divorced and separated Catholics. With the help of counselors, theologians, and priests, you can go from pain and loneliness to hope and healing. Practical advice meets pastoral care, with the help of experts and others who have suffered through divorce. As they witness to their pain and to the redemptive power of Christ, you will laugh, cry, and identify with their journey from heartache to healing.
All course content and materials are faithful to the Catholic teaching, generated by experts in the fields of Catholic psychology, theology, and spiritual direction. The course will be led by a facilitator trained and overseen by the Archdiocese of New York’s Family Life/Respect Life Office.
