“Catholic’s Divorce Survival Guide” to Start in Brewer on March 1

BREWER---The “Catholic’s Divorce Survival Guide” is a 12-week program that will start on Monday, March 1, at 6 p.m. at St. Joseph Church on 531 North Main Street in Brewer.

Whether you were divorced ten days ago or ten years ago, this program, based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, will offer valuable insights for everyone seeking comfort, counsel, and clarity. It features DVD presentations and discussions each week that will cover a number of topics. With the help of expert counselors, theologians, and priests, divorced and separated Catholics will be guided from pain and loneliness to hope and healing.

Practical advice meets spiritual growth through the Sacraments, the teachings of the Church, and wisdom from experts and others who have suffered through divorce. In addition, participants will discover how to work through the emotional upheaval of separation and divorce; learn how to navigate through new financial concerns; address questions of forgiveness, family, and new relationships; and gain an understanding of the meaning and purpose of the annulment process. As participants experience this pastoral program, their lives are rejuvenated, their hope is restored, and their faith in Christ and his Church is renewed.

Face masks will be required; all state and diocesan safety protocols will be observed. The cost is $20 per person (the fee will be waived for those who cannot afford it) and includes a “Personal Survival Guide” and all materials for the twelve weeks.

Pre-registration is required. Please call Linda Thayer at (207) 947-0614 to register. For more information regarding this program, please go to
