    Support Services:
     
    The Family Life Ministries web page includes, in its description, "enrichment programs for... the separated, divorced and widowed." A search of the diocesan website did uncover descriptions of programs from 2002, but nothing more current. No other mention of ministry to divorced and separated was found. Please contact the Office of Family Life Ministries for more information.
     
    Other information on support groups is still under construction.
     

    The Family Life website provides links for Support for Stressed Marriages, Coping with Separation and Divorce, and Coping with Grief. Please visit the website or contact the Family Life Office for more information.

    Support Services:
     
    Catholic Charities provides support for children of separated or divorced parents, and individual counseling on dealing with loss.  The current (1/26/10) diocesan website does not specifically mention ministry for separated and divorced, though in previous versions Catholic Charities was mentioned as sponsoring a six-week program aimed at addressing the special needs of newly separated or divorced persons, and an annual Day of Recollection for separated and divorced.  Please contact Catholic Charities for more information.
     

    Ministry with the Separated and Divorced provides a wealth of support services, including Parish Support Groups, Afternoons of Reflection, Leadership Training for Support Group Leaders, Beginning Experience, programs for Children of Divorce, and Suggestions for Family Members. For details, including links to an extensive list of parish support groups, visit the Ministry with the Separated and Divorced web page, or contact Family Ministries.
