Bloom For Catholic Women is the fruit of a recent collaboration between Integrity Restored and Bloom. An online community, Bloom For Catholic Women offers therapeutic and Catholic-based online courses for women healing from the trauma of discovering their husband's sexual and/or pornography addiction.
Available as a subscription or through individual course purchases, the community is a confidential space where women can share, learn, and gain support from other women experiencing similar trauma.
If you are suffering from the trauma of living with or recovering from your husband's pornography use, we invite you to download the free eBook, A Woman Betrayed: Can This Heart Be Healed?
Through this eBook, we hope you will begin to discover that you are not alone and that healing IS possible.
Archbishop Vigneron on Recent News Concerning Clergy Sexual Abuse
Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron on Monday released a letter to the faithful, offering prayers for victims of clergy abuse and affirming the need for accountability among clergy. The letter was written in anticipation of the release of a grand jury report on clergy abuse in Pennsylvania and in light of revelations of misconduct by former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
“My prayers today are with the victims of abuse at the hands of clergy worldwide, particularly those represented in the grand jury report in Pennsylvania. The allegations contained in that report, as well as recent allegations of sinful behavior involving former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick – regardless of when and where they happened – are daunting tests of faith for you in the Church, her leadership and our ongoing efforts towards abuse prevention and response.”

The Archdiocese of Detroit places no deadlines or time limits on reporting the sexual abuse of minors by priests, deacons, and other personnel. Be it five, fifteen, or 50 years later, our diocese accepts and responds to all reports.
