New Life program for the newly Divorced and/or Separated
If you are recently divorced or separated you may need to give yourself some time to work through your loss and pain. "New Life" is a ten week program designed for persons in the early stages of separation or divorce. In this program, we offer a "safe place" for people to gain a perspective on their loss. Some of the topics that will be addressed in the program are: self-image, stress, anger, blame, guilt, loneliness, and how to move forward toward growth. The program consists of one meeting each week from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM for ten weeks, plus exercises to be practiced between the sessions. If you are interested in attending, the first session will be on Tuesday, September 8th from 7:00-9:00 PM at the St. Thomas the Apostle parish center, lower level. Registration is necessary to ensure that materials are available for all attendees. Cost is $10 for books/supplies.

Prayer of Faith, Hope and Love
Let me know be firm in my faith as my end draws ever nearer. When my time comes, let me depart this life peacefully, and join my family and friends, waiting for me on the other side, now more of them gone than remaining here below. The sands of my time are running out...I am yours, Lord, now and forever, in faith, in hope, in love! Please, please, hold me ever in Your heart. Let their souls rise blazingly bright once more, and please receive them Jesus into shining and eternal glory with You! All this I pray to You My good Redeemer, in hope and confidence and burning ardent love. Amen.
