B.E. is a support group for those coping with the pain of loss of their life partner, through Death, Separation or Divorce. Do you find that you need more support than family and friends can provide? Seeking help is a sign of strength and self-knowledge not weakness. This is a healing ministry, which helps to resolve the grief that goes with the end of a marriage or relationship. A team, who are themselves widowed, separated or divorced share their experiences with you.

Next residential Programme will take place in Avila Carmelite Centre Donnybrook, Morehampton Road Dublin 4, 12th - 14th May For further information please phone Dublin Team
