Serenity Retreats focus on the spiritual principles and practices of the 12 Step program of recovery from addictions. The Friars have had a long-standing outreach to the 12 Step communities. We listen to 5th Steps and our retreats support Step 11 – “we sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood him…”
Monthly Twilight Retreats
The Serenity Twilights take place normally on the first Wednesday and Thursday of each month, September – June. This year the Serenity Twilights will focus on the spiritual wisdom found within the 12 Step Program. The program is simple – although not easy – wholistic and life-giving. For over 85 years countless individuals have found in these practical steps a spiritual path that has grounded them in their recovery.
To become “happy, joyous and free” does not guarantee a trouble-free life. How do we navigate the ups and downs in recovery? Bill W. wrote that greater emotional sobriety, developing greater maturity and balance in our relationships, is crucial. This serenity series will address important issues in these relationships, such as forgiveness, letting go of harmful patterns of thinking and building from the strengths of the program.
