After a divorce or a death of a spouse, what used to be US is no longer. It is a life transition that is neither welcome nor easy. And, it is necessary to transition to ME.
New Beginnings is a self-help support group where people help people through the difficult experience of death of a spouse, divorce, or in the process of divorce. We are a non-profit ministry of St. Raphael Catholic Church in Naperville. Our focus is on the Spiritual, Intellectual and Emotional growth of our members.
Our mission is to provide a supportive and safe environment for all our members, as they adjust to their new roles as a single person again.
There are many types of support groups for the divorced and widowed. We encourage you to give us a chance and see if we fit your needs. Members say that New Beginnings has "saved my life".
We meet weekly from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday evenings at St. Raphael in Naperville. Come to the back of the building and look for the parish offices. Signs will be posted.
