Beginning Experience

Harrisburg Beginning Experience

Peer ministry for the separated, divorced and widowed
The Next Event:
November 6-8, 2020

at Camp Hebron in Halifax, Pa

Harrisburg Beginning Experience is a peer ministry for the Separated, Divorced and Widowed, rooted in the Catholic Church, serving people of all faiths.

Beginning Experience offers hope for a new beginning, a sense of community, and an opportunity for healing among those you can trust – people who have experienced a similar loss. During the weekend, a team of adults who have experienced the loss of a spouse will lead participants through a series of presentations, private reflections, and small group sharing.

The Harrisburg Beginning Experience team is cancelling the weekend planned for May 1-3 at the Jesuit Retreat Center in Wernersville, Pa., due to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus. The next weekend will be held November 6-8, 2020, at Camp Hebron in Halifax, Pa.
