What is "Journey of Hope"?

Journey of Hope is a structured support group for separated and divorced Catholics. Christ holds those who suffer close to his heart and desires to bring about healing. This program helps participants find their way to reconciliation, peace and hope through Christ and the Church. 

No matter where you are in the timeline of separation and divorce, you are encouraged to look no further than the Catholic Church. With its sacraments and teachings, its 2000 year history will provide a rich treasure of spiritual reality, wisdom and truth. It is our profound hope that this program will help you to tap into that richness and fullness of truth and will be the catalyst for transforming sadness and anger to courage, compassion, forgiveness and hope.

The program is designed to help people navigate through the stress of separation and divorce from a Catholic faith exploration perspective, while complimenting any marriage counselling participants may be receiving.

We began this program in Ottawa, in March of 2015.
This ministry is endorsed by The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ottawa
