Catholic's Divorce Survival Guide (CDSG) Facilitator Training

Our goal is to have a support group nearby for ANYONE in our Archdiocese who wants one.

Will you help us?The Catholic’s Divorce Survival Guide (CDSG) Facilitator Training is for people who have gained some distance and healing from their own divorce and separation, and would like to facilitate a small group for other's to do the same.CDSG is a 12-week course dealing with many of the wounds that follow divorce, especially betrayal, loneliness and desperation. Being a facilitator is NOT the same as becoming a therapist.The training is free, the only cost is for materials. In addition, the Office of Laity and Family Life will need permission from the pastor for 1) the parish to have a CDSG group, and 2) for the individual who attended the training to lead it.Please contact Melissa Keating in the Office of Laity & Family Life for more details: or 314.792.7173.
