What does it mean to be Catholic… and divorced?
Divorce is a hard road to travel. Among Catholics, it’s an even trickier topic to discuss. Too often, conversation around divorce is as bitter and acrid as the experience itself.
The After Divorce Online Community is here to change that.
We promise that clarity is possible – without forsaking charity.
We also promise that living by religious principles doesn’t mean we can’t live with hope and joy. Light and love are at the end of the tunnel.
Church teachings and the sacred truth of Scripture will lead the way in the talks and discussions After Divorce presents.
Hurting? Hear inspiring stories of happy and holy saints ‘after divorce’ to renew your hope. Hesitant? Get wisdom and guidance from pastors, counselors, and support group leaders.
You’ll learn about products and programs geared to specific concerns of persons going through divorce.
Discussion groups and coaching sessions will bring opportunities for everyone to be seen, heard, and understood.
All are welcome, whether newly divorced, years past a divorce, or concerned friends and family.
If divorce is affecting you or someone you love, register today for peace, purpose, and a practical path to the abundant life.
Looking forward to seeing you there,

"The After Divorce Conference offers a solidly Catholic lineup of speakers
“They will address a wide variety of topics for persons in all stages of divorce recovery. Whether you’re new to the game or an old pro, you’ll find information, inspiration, help, hope, and healing–and a whole community of people who understand where you’ve been.
– Mary Jo Rennert
"There is a lot of confusion amongst Catholic regarding divorce and family breakdown.
“There is also grief, guilt and anger. After the pain of family and marriage breakdown people need practical tools to help put their faith to work bringing healing and forgiveness. This conference will help bring healing and light to those in need.”
– Fr. Dwight Longenecker
"Many adults, including divorced or separated parents, do not understand the unique nature of divorce grief for children.
– Lynn Kapusinki
