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.
