Marriage & Family Life

Divorced and Separated Catholics

The outreach to Separated and Divorced Catholics in the Diocese of Venice is intentionally designed to provide a sense of belonging (both as valued and needed members of the Church). As a peer ministry, it will provide compassion and understanding to those encountering the grief and trauma of separation and divorce, single parent challenges and issues, and clarification of Church teachings on divorce and annulment. This ministry also serves as an outreach to separated and divorced Catholics, who through some misunderstandings and/or past experiences, are not presently active participants in the Catholic community.
