FORT LORAMIE — The Newport Fort Loramie Pastoral Region of the Catholic Church has announced a 12-week series of classes for Catholics who are divorced or separated.

Catholic author Rose Sweet has written and produced a series featuring divorced Catholic men and women who share their inspiring stories.

Topics included in the series include shock, denial, fear, anger, depression, loneliness, financial issues, battles in court, custody and visitation, annulment, dating again, marriage, and singleness.

Sessions begin Sept. 1 and run weekly from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Parish Office Center, the previous rectory next to St. Michael Church, 33 Elm St., Fort Loramie. The fee of $25 per person includes a “Personal Survival Guide” and materials for 12 weeks.
