Is anyone in your family divorced? Please give them a copy of this bulletin or invite them to the twelve-week Surviving Divorce program.

St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church is pleased to announce that we are again offering this highly-effective program that will bring hope and healing to those who have experienced the pain and loneliness of a broken marriage. Surviving Divorce features twelve video presentations that cover topics such as shock and grief, anger and forgiveness, money issues, dealing with children and a former spouse, and annulment and remarriage.

This program is for the newly separated and divorced and those still struggling with issues many years later. It will help them find answers to their questions, restore their hope, and begin authentic healing.

Surviving Divorce will help you:

  • Work through the emotional upheaval of separation and divorce.
  • Find personal healing and hope.
  • Discover a deeper understanding of God’s love for you.
  • Gain wisdom and comfort from experts and others who share your experiences.
  • Navigate new concerns like custody, court hearings, and finances.
