Beginning Experience Cincinnati Chapter

     Welcome to the Beginning Experience Cincinnati Chapter  

We are a peer ministry that serves both the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. Beginning Experience programs are presented by a team of people made up of former participants who themselves came to Beginning Experience grieving the loss of their marriage through separation, divorce or death. These trained facilitators have experiences similar losses, can relate to the guilt and grief endured by those who have lost their partner, and are willing to share their own experience to help others. Our goal is to hold two weekend retreats a year: One in the Spring and one in the Fall.


The Beginning Experience weekend program helps grieving single-again persons emerge from the darkness of grief into the light of a new beginning, and move into the future with renewed hope. The program helps deal with the natural grief process and offers an opportunity, through God, for turning the pain of loss into an experience of positive growth.


Founded by a Catholic nun and rooted in the Christian tradition, the ministry’s open, ecumenical spirit serves those of all faiths.
