Office of Family Ministry

  • Catholic Annulment: Although the Marriage Tribunal(815) 722-2256, is directly responsible for the annulment procedures in the diocese, The Office of Family Ministry offers information and education to divorced individuals who are seeking a declaration of nullity regarding their previous marriage bond. Through the Annulment Information Day (in the fall) and Annulment Support Day for Petitioners (in the spring), divorced Catholics investigating the possibility of an annulment are offered guidance and support in a safe and caring environment. Information nights and other workshops are also available periodically.  Led by trained professionals, these programs are sponsored by The Office of Family Ministry in collaboration with the Marriage Tribunal. Please call Family Ministry(815) 838-5334 for information on the annulment process. We encourage interested persons to read Myths and Truths  about Annulment.

  • Joyful Again!:  This program is for widows and widowers who want to resolve the grief they feel inside and adjust to the many changes that occur after the death of a spouse. Video presentations, along with input from trained facilitators, who have themselves experienced the painful loss of a spouse, are combined with private reflection and group discussion time. The two-day experience has helped hundreds of widowed individuals view life with new hope, joy and enthusiasm. The Office of Family Ministry sponsors two Joyful Again! Retreats during the year, and other weekends are offered at various locations. For further information or to register, call Charlotte Hrubes at (708) 354-7211 or for upcoming weekend dates and locations.


  • Retrouvaille Weekends: Retrouvaille (pronounced re tro vi) is a national organization which offers a weekend program for troubled marriages. The Retrouvaille weekend provides a Catholic spiritual context for working carefully on one’s marriage. Through presentations, private reflection, and dialogue, couples whose marriages are seriously troubled and who may be contemplating divorce are invited to reflect on their marriage and on what they can do to save it. For more information, call (708) 802-1830
