There are few topics more challenging in the Church today than divorce. Not only is the reality of divorce incredibly painful for those involved, but few seem to understand what the Catholic Church teaches on the topic.

As a result, many stop attending Mass or leave the faith altogether.

Whether they experienced divorce weeks ago or years ago, they often feel rejection and shame. Many also fear being judged by their communities.

The Surviving Divorce Program is a proven program of hope and healing. It offers answers and guidance to the many issues surrounding divorce, annulments, remarriage, parenting, and more. It brings the divorced through emotional healing, the power of forgiveness, and into a more vibrant relationship with Christ and the Church.

Catholic experts included in the Video Sessions:

  • Rose Sweet, author and speaker, is your Surviving Divorce “Guide”.
  • Christopher West, powerful speaker, teacher and author on Pope John Paull II’s revolutionary look at love and human sexuality, Man and Women He Created Them: A Theology of the Body.
  • Father Donald Calloway, MIC, a young, passionate priest, is no stranger to the topic of divorce. His parents divorced when he was young and by the time he was 10 he’d had three “fathers.”
  • Dr. Ray Guarendi is a clinical psychologist, author, speaker, and popular radio host of Ave Maria Radio’s “The Doctor Is In”.
  • Father Steve Porter, trained at Diocese of East Anglia (England) in 1976 where he earned the equivalent of a BA in Philosophy and Theology and a Ph.D specialization in Spiritual Direction.
