One weekend… All the difference

— George Rigazzi, Office of Family Life, Archdiocese of Oklahoma CityDuring my twelve years as director of the Office of Family Life, I can attest to the transforming power of the Beginning Experience program. I have seen countless individuals come to the weekend on Friday evening broken and suffering and leave on Sunday hopeful and on the road to healing. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are critical to the process. Knowing the loving and life-giving power of God is paramount and the weekend brings this reality home. Participants have stated such things as “BE changed my life” or “I don’t know where I would be without BE”. With such high praise, can you afford not to try it?’
