Online spring Retrouvaille

FORT WAYNE — The constant arguing: It’s no fun. Retrouvaille can help.

Retrouvaille can help couples work through struggles in their marriages, difficult situations that seem impossible to repair. Since 1977, this program’s tools have helped strengthen and improve the marriages of tens of thousands of couples throughout the world. Retrouvaille couples have experienced marital difficulty at all levels, including disillusionment and deep misery. 

Indianapolis Retrouvaille will hold its next weekend virtually, March 4-7 via Zoom. The weekend introduces couples to important communication tools. In the privacy of home, participants will examine their life together in a new and positive way. After the weekend, they will attend six follow-up sessions — also via Zoom. Post-weekend topics focus on specific issues, including conflict management.

Begin again. Learn more and register today at www.helpourmarriage.org or email [email protected] for confidential registration information.

The donations were given to St. Joseph Mission, a shelter in Fort Wayne for homeless, single women. Students, parents and teachers in each grade brought in specific items that were on the mission’s most-needed list. The school also collected donations for the Ave Maria House to help Abby Kurek, an alumna of the school, with a service project.
