What is Beginning Experience?

Beginning Experience is a recovery program for widowed, separated and divorced individuals, to facilitate the resolution of the grief surrounding the end of marriage/relationship and to promote healing.

We offer a program to 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. This program helps deal with the natural grief process and offers an opportunity, through God, for turning the pain of loss into an experience of positive growth.

Beginning Experience for Youth and Teens

The loss of a parent through death, or a changed parental relationship through divorce or separation is a traumatic experience for children, or for those in their teens or twenties. In dealing with these losses, they may become withdrawn, fearful, insecure, act out for no apparent reason, become confused or depressed, and often blame themselves.

Beginning Experience¨ programs for these age groups provide a place where help and support are offered to work through these emotions. A safe, secure environment allows caring acceptance and feelings of community to blossom. The aim of each program is to help sort out the feelings of loss and pain while strengthening self esteem and self acceptance.
