Dear Fathers,

Attached please find bulletin announcements that can be run each weekend from December 20-21, 2014 through February 7-8, 2015 to help get the word out about Retrouvaille, a program meant to help couples rebuild their marriages.   Retrouvaille's first marriage-saving weekend in Eastern Washington in 2015 is February 13-15 at the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center in Spokane. Please help families in your community hear about this program through your bulletin.

Over 90 percent of the couples that attended the Retrouvaille Fall 2014 weekend indicated they heard about Retrouvaille in the bulletin or pulpit announcements. A few indicated they saw the poster and brochures posted in their church. Many are too embarrassed to ask their pastor or friends for help with their marriages. Others are just hoping time will make things better.

The couples told organizers that seeing the program announced repeatedly in their church bulletin gave them the courage to pick up the phone and make the call. Most say that Retrouvaille was the lifeline that helped their marriage and their family. You are our lifeline to them!

By running the announcement for the February Retrouvaille weekend in your December 20-21, bulletin, and continuing to run an announcement every week (if possible) through February 8, you give troubled marriages and their hurting families a chance to heal. We thank you in advance!
