December 9-11, 2016 – Men’s Bill W Weekend Retreat with Fr. Kevin Ballard, SJ
Retreat Title: Disconnected, Connected, Reconnected
Our alcoholism took away our connection to self, God, and other people. Through the 12 Step fellowship and program, we regained “conscious contact.” This enabled us to join the world again! In this retreat, we will explore the tools of prayer and meditation placed before us in the Big Book. We will explore some other methods and concepts that might be of service to us and others. We will share our experience, strength and hope in recovery. It works!


March 10-12, 2017 – Friends/Family of Bill W Weekend Retreat for Men & Women with Sr. Cathy Cahill, OSF
Retreat Title: Growing Along Spiritual Lines
Being willing to grow along spiritual lines is the hallmark of a person serious about growth in recovery. This retreat will give us an opportunity to see how we have everything we need to foster that growth. We need only tap into the goodness and grace that we have.


March 17-19, 2017 – Bill W Weekend Retreat for Men with Dr. Kevin McClone, MDiv, PsyD
Retreat Title: Psychospirituality of Addiction: Grace Comes through the Wound

Psychospiritual recovery through the 12 Steps is a graced movement from the wounds of feeling restless, lost, alone and afraid to a more fully conscious, inner-directed and hopeful search for serenity rooted in the best spiritual principles of love, service, and deeper connection to God, self and others. In this retreat we will explore the gradual process of psychospiritual transformation through embracing our imperfections and the richness of the 12 Steps.
