Divorce Ministry

Know that the Church is always your home, no matter what your painful experience may be or how long you may have been away.

Support is out there.

Throughout the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, parishes offer the Surviving Divorce series to those newly separated or divorced and to those still struggling many years later.

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. It is based on the teachings of the Catholic Church and is open to anyone who needs comfort, counsel, and clarity after divorce.
