Beginning Experience

The Beginning Experience is a peer ministry for separated, divorced, or widowed individuals. It is a weekend program to help move from the darkness of grief into the light of a new beginning of hope for the future. While this ministry is rooted in the Catholic tradition, it is open to men and women of all faiths. For more information about Beginning Experience or upcoming retreat dates, please visit the website link below.





The Beginning Experience weekend is held 3-4 times per year, at either the Catholic Conference Formation Center in Dallas or the Catholic Renewal Center in Fort Worth. Please visit the website to see upcoming dates and locations.
