Men's Matt Talbot Recovery Retreat 


Steps 1, 2 and 3: We're all Beginners

May 17-19, 2019

Msgr. Ed Bradley

No matter how short or long our time in the program, Steps 1, 2, and 3 remain the strong foundation of our program.  They support our journey in taking the remaining steps – one day at a time.

At Holy Family, we invite men in recovery into a peaceful atmosphere where you can rest, renew your spiritual life, and deepen your sobriety. Hear an inspiring lecture, get a massage (extra fee), catch up on some rest, and care for yourself as we care for you in mind, body, and spirit. Our Matt Talbot weekends are open to ALL people, from ALL backgrounds, regardless of whether or not you are a member of a church. The retreat begins on Friday with a buffet dinner from 6:00-7:45 p.m. and concludes on Sunday around 11:00 a.m. 

Generous scholarships are available. For scholarship information, call Eric R. (203) 360-7448. 

Offering: $250 which includes Matt Talbot dues

A Day to Breathe

Enjoy some breathing space by arriving on retreat a day early—on Thursday night after dinner. On Friday, you can sleep in, have a nutritious breakfast and lunch, take a quiet walk, or catch up on some rest before the inspiring weekend retreat begins. To sign up for A Day to Breathe, simply register as an "Individual with A Day to Breathe" when you pick your retreat weekend.
