The spring retreat, Moving Forward, is sponsored by Hope United Grief Group (HUGG). This is a special retreat planned for widows, widowers, and significant others who have lost a loved one.
The Moving Forward retreat will be held on Friday (evening), Saturday and Sunday, April 13 through April 15, at the St. Teresa campus in Winona. This interdenominational retreat is meant to be a gift from God to remind the grieving that there is hope after the loss of a loved one, no matter where they may be on their journey of grief. It will be a safe place for one to come and be in the company of others who can offer their love and support.
