New Horizons: Celebrating New Life after Divorce

The 2023 date is tentatively scheduled for a weekend in October. Be on the lookout for more information as it becomes available.

The New Horizons weekend retreat is a one-time opportunity for reflection, personal work, and celebration to help people embark on a new phase of life after divorce. The Weekend of Healing is for men and women who are divorced or separated with no chance of reconciliation. Those divorced, recently or for years, will find the weekend rewarding. Although the weekend is a ministry of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, members of all faiths are welcome.
