Outreach to Divorced Catholics

Crossing Over the Bridge

When you get married, you believe that it will last a lifetime. Many marriages do but some fail to make it. Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church is committed to outreach for Catholics who have gone through a divorce. Through our Education Commission’s New Evangelization movement, Linda Bukalski is coordinating an outreach to divorced Catholics in our local community.

Join us in Recovering from Divorce, a 13-session program that guides you step-by-step down the path to hope and healing.  Meeting with others also divorced, this book and videos will help you regain hope and restore peace to your life by helping you more fully tap into the power of your Catholic faith. Based on Catholic teaching and doctrine, this program is in use by parishes throughout the United States and Canada.
