What participants from last year’s Life-Giving Wounds online retreat said:
- 100% said they’d recommend it to others.
- “Hearing all of the speakers talk about their own experiences as children of divorce and seeing how they have all chosen to rise above and choose differently for their lives has given me a renewed hope for Catholic marriages.”
- “The Life-Giving Wounds Retreat provided me with a communal setting in which I could more deeply dive into understanding the role of my parents’ divorce on my story and begin to pursue healing.”
- “The small group sessions were wonderful and it was so good to hear what others in similar situations had to say. It’s always so helpful to get insight from others that I may not have thought of on my own.”
- “Until I started learning about other’s challenges they’ve learned of and overcome from their parents’ divorce, I did not look at my parents’ divorce. With almost 40 years since, I can look back now and see with different eyes, and grow further as the Dad I’m working hard to be.”
