The Diocesan Office of Marriage and Family is sponsoring a mini-retreat for couples February 15 and 16, 2013, at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Apex. The retreat will be conducted by John and Teri Bosio, who will share their experience and insights into the topic “Marriage is a Blessing.”

The couple has produced SIX DATES for Catholic Couples, which is based on John’s first book “Happy Together: The Catholic Blueprint for a Loving Marriage,” (Twenty-Third Publications, 2008). His second book, “Blessed is Marriage: A Guide to the Beatitudes for Catholic Couples” was released in March 2012, (Twenty-Third Publications).

John has master’s degrees in Theology and Counseling. For 13 years he served three parishes in Kansas as a marriage and family therapist. Teri has worked in parish ministry for a number of years as adult formation and RCIA director and director of religious education.

The retreat will be held February 15 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. and continues Saturday morning from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Child care is available for the Saturday morning session only at no charge but requires pre-registration. The cost of the retreat is $15 per couple. All are welcome. For more information, email adult_faith@saintandrew.org by February 8.
