We, the D.S.W. of St. Catherine, work with others
who are living through the difficulties surrounding death,
separation or divorce. We believe healing comes through
helping others. No one is left unchanged by these major life
experiences. The pain and fear that accompany such a
disruption to one’s life are difficult to bear alone.
Families and friends may not understand, but a person who has
had a similar cross to bear is a true gift of hope.
We, the D.S.W., are here to share our knowledge of
resources – whether books, groups, retreats, or social
events, etc. We reach back to help others behind us on this
road. God has called each of us to a different life than we
had planned, but we still trust the he is guiding our way.
