A faith family where Catholics suffering from broken relationships will find a welcome home throughout the Archdiocese.
Our mission is to be a Catholic Faith resource of spiritual and practical help for families that are hurting because of broken relationships and to give hope to those recovering from separation, and divorce. Our energies are directed toward supporting, helping, enabling and empowering each other in that journey. We wish to belong fully to our Faith Family, to be a gift that inspires and a lesson by which others may learn and grow.
Our goal is to become a source of spiritual strength and wisdom; to process the grief; to ease the pain; to give comfort and hope to those recovering from separation, divorce or death of a spouse.
