Strengthening Our Recovery

DATE: Wednesday, December 14, 2016

PLACE: Salesianum School — Centenary Hall

1801 N. Broom St • Wilmington, DE 19802

TIME: 6:30 — 8:30 pm
TOPIC: Flourishing in Recovery with Guest Speaker Father Mark

Bill Wilson, co-founder of the great recovery movement, Alcoholics Anonymous, said the twelve steps contain ancient and universal wisdom, the common property
of all mankind. Fr. Mark will describe how to unleash the transformational power of twelve step spirituality resulting in an evolution from physical sobriety to emotional and spiritual sobriety. A selection from Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions says it best:

“So, practicing these Steps, we had a spiritual awakening about which finally there was no question. Looking at those who were only beginning and still doubted themselves, the rest of us were able to see the change setting in. From great numbers of such experiences, we could predict that the doubter who still claimed that he hadn’t got the “spiritual angle,” and who still considered his well-loved A.A. group the higher power, would presently love God and call God by name.”
