Beginning Experience:

be_logoBeginning Experience (B.E.) is a Catholic based weekend program for adults grieving the loss of a relationship due to separation, death or divorce.  The weekends are centered at Luther Crest Bible Camp near Alexandria, MN. and serves those of all faiths.  “This was my first step out of grief and self-pity,” was a comment made by a participant on one of our weekends; our goal for each weekend could not be better stated!  We also offer a Young Peoples’ program which runs concurrently with the adult program and serves youth family members ages 12-18. Engaging younger family members help them cope and adjust to a new family dynamic. All programs assist with the natural grief process and offer an opportunity, through God, for turning the pain of loss into an experience of positive growth.

B.E. has two concurrently run programs at Luther Crest: one for adults and one for those ages twelve to eighteen. Three B.E. weekends are scheduled: March 31-April 2, 2017 and October 6-8, 2017.  To receive an application, or for more information on either program, call (888) 565-0178 or visit
