Peer Ministry

Peer Ministry

Beginning Experience programs are presented by a team of people made up of former participants, or’ wounded healers’ who themselves came to Beginning Experience grieving the loss of their marriage through death, divorce or separation. These trained facilitators have experienced similar losses, can relate to the guilt and grief endured by those who have lost their partner, and are willing to share their own experience to help others.


Beginning Experience programs help grieving single-again persons emerge from the darkness of grief into the light of a new beginning, and move into the future with renewed hope. The programs help deal with the natural grief process and offer an opportunity, through God, for turning the pain of loss into an experience of positive growth.


Whether you choose to attend the Beginning Experience weekend only, or in addition to other support for the single again, the program’s invitational process offers the opportunity to move toward a new beginning in life. Its quality and effectiveness are well documented.

Founded by a Catholic nun and rooted in the Christian tradition, the ministry’s open, ecumenical spirit serves those of all faiths.
