The loss of a loved one is difficult and painful. The loss of a spouse is a particular kind of suffering that raises questions of faith – and can, at the same time, be an opportunity for profound intimacy with Christ, and with our departed loved one.

Ann M. Koshute, MTS, will lead a day of reflection March 26 at Malvern Retreat House for those who have lost a spouse as an opportunity for spiritual reflection and refreshment. Jesus is closest to us in our suffering and grief. This day will look at who Jesus is, where he is in our suffering and how we can open our hearts and our wounds to his healing love.

Space is limited. To register for this retreat call 610-644-0400 or visit the website MalvernRetreat.com. The retreat house is located at 315 South Warren Avenue in Malvern.
