Churches partner to offer widows' retreat

From Western NC-

Members at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Linville United Methodist Church are partnering to offer a special outreach event to those who are widows.

Registration is now open for a widows’ retreat that will be held on Thursday, Aug. 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

The churches are sponsoring storyteller and certified grief recovery specialist Donna Marie Todd to present her “A Widow’s Tale” program to minister to area widows.

There is a $20 fee per person to attend, which is to defray the cost of food for the breakfast, lunch and celebratory dinner that will be offered at the retreat. The churches also received a grant from the Episcopal Church Women of the Diocese of western North Carolina to help pay for the food.
