Retrouvaille - Help And Hope for Struggling Marriages
Upcoming Local Weekend - September 14-16, 2018
Most couples who have attended Retrouvaille, an international peer ministry proven to help people in hurting marriages, tell us they learned about this program from their parish weekly bulletin.
Many people who are struggling in their marriages are afraid to approach their pastor or their friends while other are just hoping time alone may make things get better.
For those who found Retrouvaille to be the lifeline they needed to help their marriage and family, the overwhelming number said that seeing the program announced repeatedly in their parish bulletin finally gave them the courage to pick up the phone and call!
Please consider running the soon-to-arrive bulletin announcement as often as possible through the upcoming weekend date . . . we all want to give struggling couples and hurting families every chance to find their lifeline to healing.
