Program Brings Hope in Face of Loss
By Mike Latona/Catholic Courier
After his wife of 45 years passed away, John Maley encountered fellow parishioners who did not know what to say and coupled friends who hesitated to include him in their gatherings.
When John Shannon became divorced, his best friend stopped calling him.
Sue Harriman, who also is divorced, became inactive in the Catholic Church because she felt she no longer fit in.
Thanks to Beginning Experience, however, all three have found compassion, emotional support and spiritual strength to help them through their struggles.
