March 4
6, 2016: Cardinal Stritch Retreat House, Mundelein, IL
April 1517, 2016: King's House Retreat Center, Belleville, IL

REFLECT Catholic retreats for singles is for and about adults in their mid-30s to 50s.  It's for those who want to know themselves better and discover more about their capacity for life as a single man or women.   It's an experience that calls us to believe in our value to the Lord, and to devote ourselves to caring for and serving others.  A two-day weekend retreat through REFLECT is a unique and rare opportunity for mid-life singles to take a step back from everyday life to reflect on where they are at, where they're going, and how they're going to get there. It's a great way to meet new people, share new experiences, and draw closer to the giver of life - Jesus Christ.

Divorce Recovery Program

St. Charles Borromeo Parish
5891 Ridge Rd., Parma, Ohio 44129
P.M. – 8:30 P.M., Sundays, beginning March 6, 2016

Going through a separation and divorce can be overwhelming and brings about many strong feelings and emotional upheaval. There can be any combination of anger, guilt, hurt, blame, loneliness, fear, abandonment, sadness, isolation, etc. The holidays can add extra pressure on top of that.  Many individuals have found that attending a peer support group can provide support and encouragement and can be very helpful toward healing and recovery. Sessions are guided by a trained facilitator in an environment where confidentiality is maintained.

For more information or to register, please see the information flyer.

Divorce and Beyond:
A 10-Week Program with Proven Results for Those Experiencing Divorce

Durango, CO
Various dates and locations

You announced that you are getting a divorce. Your friends don't know what to say, so they're staying away? You feel cheated and angry? Sound familiar? You are not alone.

There are loving, dedicated therapists who will support you through this mourning process into healing and acceptance. You will share your experiences with a small group of others, men and women, who are also undergoing this seemingly hopeless trauma. This is a safe and confidential setting. There IS light at the end of the tunnel.

What About the Children? — When you are enrolled in Divorce and Beyond and you feel that your child or children would benefit from association with other children who are in the same boat, so to speak, you can enroll them in a class designed especially for them. It meets at the same time and place as Divorce and Beyond. We talk about custody, visitation, Mom's house and Dad's house and play games designed to bring repressed fears into the open. This program is limited to children aged 6 through 12. Sometimes they get tired of learning concepts after being in school all day, so we do puzzles, drawing and other creative activities.

These programs is presented by the Colorado Lifework Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Colorado nonprofit organization, and is offered periodically. The cost of the 10-week program is $25. Scholarships are available. For more information and the latest schedule please call Ginny at 970-385-5575 or Therese at 970-247-0435.
