FAITH Admitting one’s powerlessness and need for a savior is a central focus of Catholic in Recovery groups. From this foundation, we lean on our faithful understanding of Jesus Christ as our Higher Power. When groups gather, they unite in prayer and discuss recovery topics as they relate to liturgical themes, scripture from Sunday’s Mass readings, and the sacraments. Members are invited to engage the sacraments as a necessary component of their personal recovery while striving for spiritual growth, one day at a time.

FREEDOM The aim of each Catholic in Recovery group is to bring freedom to those struggling with addiction and unhealthy attachments. Meetings are not as much about reliving the past as they are about developing the appropriate attitudes and behavior for living each day successfully. Group members will be offered a spiritual awakening as a result of combining the spiritual wisdom of twelve-step recovery with Catholic theology, prayer, and healing.

FELLOWSHIP Uniting the body of Christ together allows members to share experience, strength, and hope with each other. Honesty, openness, and willingness to surrender to God’s will is the primary focus when groups gather together. As a result of consistent group meetings, members tend to stay accountable to each other, encourage personal growth, and are available in a time of need.



The Eucharist: Sacred Meal, Sacrifice, Real Presence

Join us for a 5-week Lenten Study Series on the Eucharist with Bishop Robert Barron!

Christ is alive and fully present in the Eucharist. Join us as we delve into the “source and summit” of our Faith with Bishop Barron’s Eucharist: Sacred Meal, Sacrifice and Real Presence. Bishop Barron brings to light the Blessed Sacrament’s reality as a sacred meal, the sacrifice necessary for communion with God, and most importantly, as the Real Presence of Christ.

Each session includes video viewing and group discussion of Study Guide questions. 

Participants will read the commentary in their Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be accomplished either before or after viewing the video.

Wednesday Evenings 7:00-8:30 PM
Church of the Transfiguration

Fee: $19.95 for study guide
