Episcopalians, Catholics reach out to divorced

From Louisiana-

Baton Rouge’s St. Aloysius Catholic and St. James Episcopal churches are collaborating throughout the Lenten season in a healing program for people divorced or separated from their spouses.

The program, “Return to Life,” a six-part series, will meet from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays beginning Feb. 17 at St. Aloysius.

The venue will alternate between the two churches for the following five Sundays, culminating in a “Day of Healing,” administered by the program’s creator, Maryanne Skrobiak, of Hales Corner, Wis., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 23 at St. Aloysius.

“It’s for people who are divorced or divorcing and who are looking for a way to heal through this grieving process,” said Angela Falgoust, the Catholic co-director of the program.

Falgoust divorced seven years ago and has led three divorce healing programs at St. Aloysius.
