A Program for the Newly Separated and Divorced
“New Life” is a 10 week program for the newly divorced and separated. Many families are going through loss because of divorce and want their church to walk with them in some form or another. The goal is for the participants to come away with tools to get them through the loss and know their church has provided a safe place to receive that help. “New Life” works through the most effective ways of healing the hurts, anger and guilt feelings that come from a divorce or separation. St. Thomas the Apostle will be sponsoring the 10 week program on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00pm in the lower parish center. The first meeting is Thursday, August 28th at 7:00pm. Registration is necessary. Please call Maryjane at 203-888-2382 ext 121 to register.
