The retreat will follow themes of John and Teri Bosio’s new book, Six Jars of Love, which focuses on loving attitudes that keep couples connected and help couples reconnect when needed.


John and Teri Bosio are former marriage and family therapists, national speakers, and authors of many great Catholic books about marriage and family life. They will be in town to lead our retreat!
