Recovery Sunday: April 15
A resolution was passed at our 2011 Diocesan Convention encouraging all congregations to host a 12-Step Eucharist during the Easter season. Bishop Thompson said, "I believe that the season of resurrection is an especially appropriate time for us to provide our congregations with opportunities to learn about the 12-Steps and addiction recovery. A Recovery Sunday is an opportunity to provide information about an illness that affects men and women of all ages, and all racial, ethnic, religious, socio-economic, and educational backgrounds." Almost 10% of people in the US struggle with addictions and most of us have a family member or friend who has been affected.
Therefore, we at St Margaret’s will offer a 12 Step Eucharist at both of our Sunday masses and offer a program about "Recovery Ministries" during our Faith Formation time between the morning liturgies on April 15.
