The St. Benedict Lodge, McKenzie Bridge, Oregon will be hosting a Catholic in Recovery (CIR) Retreat March 24-26, 2023. This three-day retreat will offer hope and healing for individuals in recovery from a variety of addictions, compulsions, and unhealthy attachments, those who are seeking to find freedom from the grip of addiction, and family members impacted by their loved one’s addiction. Catholic in Recovery is a community of men and women who overlap 12-step recovery with the sacramental life of the Catholic Church.

When in the grips of addiction, it can be difficult to seek God’s help. But the power of God is more than a concept–it’s a real, personal force of love and grace that can free us from the shackles of darkness and give us new life! Participants will be encouraged to encounter and grow in the Lord through various talks, reflections, prayer, meetings, and opportunities for fellowship grounded in a Catholic sacramental approach to the Twelve Steps of addiction recovery. The Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist will be available during the weekend.


Retreat materials, room, and five meals are included in the price of $300 per person.

Please bring your own bedding and toiletries. Restrooms are communal. See the registration form at the bottom of the page.


Meals will be served cafeteria style. Foods will be simple and nutritious which should serve for any food plan. If you have specific food allergies, please note this on the registration form at the bottom of this page.
