Introductory Group for Separated and Divorced
In response to persons suffering the loss of a spouse due to divorce or separation, the Diocese of Covington offers the support of a faith-based community through New Beginnings, a ministry for separated or divorced men and women.
New Beginnings provides opportunities for healing and personal ongoing growth. Led by a team of persons who themselves have experienced the loss of a spouse, our program invites participants to move toward a new beginning in life.
Each new group consists of 8 weekly sessions from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. This is a beginning group for those who are experiencing divorce or separation. Participants focus on such questions as:
- What does this crisis mean for me?
- What can I expect of myself and others?
- How can I best survive?
Facilitators for the group are sensitive, caring people who have also experienced the loss and trauma of separation or divorce. Persons completing this group find a new understanding of themselves and their relationships and gain the courage to discover new life. There is no charge to participate in these groups.
New Beginnings has sessions starting in September, November, February, and March.
Sessions are currently being held at:
Thomas More University
333 Thomas More Parkway
Crestview Hills, Kentucky
Online registration is currently on hold due to Covid-19.
