Have you or someone you know suffered the breakdown of a marriage and family? Please click here for resources and information approved by the Office of Marriage and Family Life Ministry (including information on a 6-week divorce recovery program based on The Catholic's Divorce Survival Guide by Rose Sweet).
The mission of the Suicide Survivors ministry is to provide healing and compassionate support in a Christian setting to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one through suicide.
Survivor of Suicide Support Group
The death of a loved one is never easy and grief is experienced differently for everyone. The Jacob Crouch Suicide Prevention Services and the Office of Marriage and Family Life are forming a support group especially tailored for survivors of suicide. This group will provide a safe place for those who have lost a loved one to suicide to share their struggles, experiences, and pain as they struggle to regain hope and strength.
The group will be facilitated by a licensed counselor and is open to all survivors of suicide over the age of 18.
The group will meet on two evenings a month. Please contact Kelley Chapman at 337 261 5653 or email email@example.com for more information or to register. Additional information may also be found at diolaf.org/suicide-survivors.
Each year the office of Marriage and Family Life offers two retreats entitled "A Catholic Journey through Grief." Please click here for additional information as it becomes available.
