Separated & Divorced

There are two types of Support Groups for Separated and Divorced Catholics. The first is a "self-help" support group, based on the premise that sharing one's thoughts, feelings and experiences is one of the most helpful ways of moving beyond the pain of divorce. The small group (limited to 10 people) is facilitated by a trained facilitator. This group meets once a week for 6-8 weeks. The group meeting is held at various locations throughout the diocese. 

The second support group is primarily educational, informational, spiritual and social in its scope. Registration is not required and the size of the group is not limited. There are fixed meeting dates, usually once or twice a month. 

For more information, please call the Family Life Office (732) 243-4573.
