“But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it”

What is By My Side?

By My Side is a comprehensive structured support group offering spiritual accompaniment, friendship and healing for separated and divorced Catholics.

Our Lord Jesus Christ holds those who suffer close to His heart and He desires to bring about healing.  This program helps participants navigate their way towards reconciliation, peace and hope through Jesus Christ and the church. 

Regardless of where you are in the timeline of separation and divorce, you are encouraged to look no further than our Catholic Church.  With its sacraments, teachings and traditions, it’s 2000 year old history will provide an abundant treasure of spiritual reality, wisdom, support and truth.

It is our deepest hope that this program will help you to tap into that richness and abundance of truth and will be the incentive for transforming anger and sadness to courage, compassion, motivation, forgiveness and hope.

The program is designed to help people journey through the stress of separation and divorce from a Catholic faith exploration perspective while complementing any marriage counselling participants may be receiving.
