EnCourage: Standing fully by the teaching of the Church, we are a group of faithful Catholic parents/relatives/friends who support one another and our loved ones with Same Sex Attraction (SSA) through discussion, prayer, fellowship and sacrifice. We meet monthly in the Diocese of Orange with our chaplain in a safe, confidential setting.
People who have lost a loved one to homicide often live in isolation and overwhelming grief. The immensity of such emotional suffering can seem unbearable, leaving them feeling alone or abandoned, including within our church. The Office of Restorative Justice seeks to help heal the relational harm caused by crime and violence that includes providing caring support for those suffering such a tragic loss.
If you are suffering the loss of a loved one due to homicide, the Office of Restorative Justice invites you to a monthly healing circle support group in a safe and caring environment. gatherings are temporarily virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic until we are allowed to resume meeting again in person.
For more information, contact Office of Restorative Justice Director Fred LaPuzza at (714) 282-4261 or via email. You can also contact Anne Buchanan at (714) 393-4389 or by emailing her.
The department is offering free U.S. immigration services and consultations for a variety of needs, including citizenship applications, green cards, petitions for alien relatives and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) renewals.
