The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament is hosting our second annual Catholic in Recovery (CIR) retreat in June. 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. 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.
