How can you help? There are many opportunities for you to offer your help to the Detroit Retrouvaille Community. Please review the Volunteer Form attached for ideas.or Here is a list of some ideas. Talk and pray about it together and then let us know what you’d like to help with. The benefits are multiplied when we discover that helping others also helps us to improve our own marriage.
