The Addictions Recovery Ministry of the Department of Specialized Ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana is a twelve-step recovery outreach ministry which welcomes recovering people into a Christian community and serves our church family as resource and support for those suffering from or affected by addictions.
"Addiction is the most powerful psychic enemy of humanity's desire for God. I am not being flippant when I say that all of us suffer from addiction. Nor am I reducing the meaning of addiction. I mean in all truth that the psychological, neurological, and spiritual dynamics of full-fledged addiction are actively at work within every human being."
Gerald C. May, M.D. in 'Addictions and Grace'

It's time to mark your calendar for our August
Mixed Weekend, Aug 4-6, 2017.
This year's theme is
Trust God, Clean House, Help Others.
Our facilitator is Bro. Kevin Kriso, OFM. Bro. Kevin has facilitated weekend retreats for people in 12-Step Recovery for over 25 years. He first became acquainted with 12-Step Recovery himself in 1986. He holds degrees in theology and counseling psychology and presently lives in an active contemplative Franciscan community in Western NY state and works mainly with college students.
Recovery is the road from restless, irritable, and discontent to trust God, clean house, and help others. This weekend, we will come together to reflect, pray, discuss, and achieve a greater balance with ourselves & God.
