AA Support Group
Weekly – Sundays, 7:30 p.m.
Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; we do not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.  Copyright © by the AA Grapevine Inc.. Feel free to join at your discretion and/or need.

Cursillo (Cur-See-Yo), is a way to develop community and help each other find Jesus in our everyday lives with focus on friendship and sharing faith through prayer, study, and action. St Patrick’s hosts the SE Metro monthly meeting called Ultreya.  Additionally, small groups meet weekly. Cursillo starts with a three-day retreat.   Attending the retreat is a very rewarding experience, but, whether or not you attend, you can join the weekly groups or  monthly meetings.

Franciscans (SFO)
Meets monthly – third Tuesday, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
St. Francis of Assisi is the founder of the Secular Franciscan Order (SFO), an international order within the Catholic Church.  The St. Thomas More Fraternity, located at St. Patrick’s, is a local fraternity within the SFO.  Members of the SFO are committed to live the rule and life of the Secular Franciscan, to live the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ by following the example of St. Francis of Assisi, who made Christ the inspiration and the center of his life with God and people.  We are called to answer the Spirit’s call to make the world a better place.  Knowing we are not able to do everything, we start with ourselves, then our family, and, going beyond that, as we are called and as situations permit, to some work at the international level.  All are welcome – men and women.
