Picking the Date
Contact Tara Cabral at Ascension Press. She'll help you plan the training session. Call 317-603-6199 or email: TCabral@ascensionpress.com
Planning the Event
A full-day is best. It allows the most people to attend and is long enough to cover the topics necessary to make the group facilitators feel equipped to lead. Inviting surrounding parishes or dioceses will make for a fun and effective day. And since Rose is there . . . why not expand the event to add a talk for the area deacons/priests, and an "Evening for the Divorced" ? Ask Tara how.
Deciding the Time
You decide the details (weekday or Saturday) , but Rose will facilitate for six (6)hours starting in the morning (9-10 am), breaking for a short lunch, and ending the session at about 4 pm.
Who Should Attend
Those who run a CDSG group, plan to, or are interested
Priests and deacons who work with the divorced and separated
Catholic or local Christian therapists and counselors
The cost is based on attendance. You may also add (1) the Clergy Mini Training, (2) the Annulment Advocate Pastoral Training, or the (3) Come and See - An Evening for the Divorced at discounted rates. Ascension Press will help you structure and price the event(s) so that most if not all of your costs can be fully recaptured.
Your leaders will be professionally trained and supported; the program will run more smoothly, and the eternal benefits to the separated and divorced and their families are priceless!
