Journey of Hope Divorce Ministry
What is Journey of Hope?
Journey of Hope for parishes is a simple and effective solution to bringing hope and healing to the separated or divorced members of your parish community. Journey of Hope has a 17-year proven track record of having helped hundreds of men and women across the US and in Canada understand the issues they face from a truly Catholic perspective. Using the books, Divorced. Catholic. Now What?, the Workbook, and the Voices of Hope DVD, the program is easy to use and implement. Participants read a chapter before coming to the meeting, then watch the corresponding video chapter from the Voices of Hope DVD and have group discussion. Voices of Hope presents the hope and encouragement offered by 35 different Catholic men and women who have suffered through divorce as well as Catholic clergy and counseling experts in the field of healing.
