purpose of the Beginning Experience (B.E.) ministry is to help divorced,
separated and widowed men and women heal the grief of their losses and
free them once again to love themselves, others and God. These

Beginning Experience Weekend
is a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon program for adults grieving the
loss of a love relationship who are ready to come to terms with their
losses and begin to move forward with their lives. This is the core
program and the foundation of the B.E. ministry.
While B.E. is affiliated with the Grand
Rapids Catholic Diocese, we do not receive any financial support from
the Diocese. We are a non-profit organization and our only external
source of funding is the United Way.
B.E. practices an inter-faith approach
in it’s ministry. We welcome all Christians, regardless of where they
may be in their faith journey.
