Healing program for returning veterans

The Bon Secours Spiritual Center, 1525 Marriottsville Road, Marriottsville, will offer "A Day of Healing, A Day of Hope: Coming Home More Fully for Veterans and Spouses," a workshop guided by Ann Bracken, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

The program uses expressive arts and a spiritually based approach to help veterans and their spouses heal the physical and psychological wounds of war. Those who attend can participate in writing exercises, create a "Collage of Hope" and experience a ritual of healing and re-integration.

Wear comfortable clothes and bring a journal, if you like. Writing and art-making materials will be provided. The cost is $70 per couple and includes lunch.
