Catholic in Recovery
Catholic in Recovery is a nonprofit organization that seeks to serve those suffering from addictions and unhealthy attachments. The organization was started by the passion of Scott Weeman as he found healing and new life through the help of 12-step recovery and the sacramental love and mercy provided by the Catholic Church.

Weekly meetings are held every Thursday evening at 6:00 pm at St. Luke. We combine the spiritual principles of 12-step recovery and the traditions of the Catholic Church. Join us as we overlap scripture from Sunday's Mass readings, liturgical themes, and recovery topics with honest discussion and prayer. Confidentiality is protected.
