An event every month that begins at 10:15am on day 10 of the month, repeating until March 10, 2018
Do AA’s Promises seem too good to be true?
Perhaps we don’t notice how they are manifesting in this gifted life of recovery. During this half-day retreat, we will look–with open hearts and minds–at the 9th Step Promises through conversation, reflection, and fellowship. Over two sessions, we will take the time to “unpack” each promise with the intention of realizing them more deeply and living them out into our world for others.
During your retreat, the beautiful grounds of the Retreat House and historic St. Paul’s church will provide you with a peaceful setting for contemplative walking, prayer or meditation. A light breakfast and lunch will be served. A suggested donation of $30 would be gratefully accepted (please don’t let that keep you from attending.)
