Alcoholism Annual Report January 2015
Submitted by Father Andrew Harrison.
We have three self- help groups meeting at St. Luke. On Sundays CODA (Co Dependents Anonymous) meets from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. They have 5 people attending regularly. On Wednesdays an AA group (Alcoholics Anonymous) meets from 7:30 to 9 PM. They have 12 attending regularly. On Thursday an AA group meets from 7:30 to 9 PM. They have about 30 attending regularly. All of the groups are pleased that we permit them to use our facility at a minimum donation. The average attendance of all three groups has remained largely the same. A comment was made to me that the our church building gives them a special spiritual feeling.
I still have not found someone to take over a parish liaison but I do have a person in mind. I hope by next year the position will be filled. Also We have had some volunteers from our self help groups volunteering for PADS.
