Catholic in Recovery
Saint Brigid Parish currently hosts weekly meetings as part of our alliance with Catholic in Recovery (CIR). The meetings consist of reading literature from CIR that connects the Sunday readings with recovery principles as well as time for group sharing. We have a Men's Recovery Group and a Friends and Family Support Group. These meetings are highlighted below and are strictly confidential. Email Catholic in Recovery for more info or simply just show up.
Catholic in Recovery is a nonprofit organization that seeks to serve those suffering from substance abuse addiction and other psychological dependencies/addictions (including, but not limited to, pornography addiction, sex and relationship addiction, various eating addictions, gambling addiction, and unhealthy relationships with wealth, power, pleasure, and honor).
Through programs and ministries that draw people closer to these two powerful sources of grace, it is the aim of Catholic in Recovery to share the Good News that God can bring about healing and recovery, even in the most hopeless of cases. The goal of every encounter and interaction that one has with our organization is connection—connections with others who have struggled or still struggle from a similar state of hopelessness as well as connection to Jesus Christ, the Lord that delivers new life. Learn more about Catholic in Recovery in the Ministry Highlight.
Catholic in Recovery, one of three Catholic innovators, recently took home $100,000 in the OSV 2021 Innovation Challenge. The Washington Post called it "Catholic Shark Tank." After narrowing the filed from over 600 applicants, 12 finalists were chosen to pitch their idea at the Challenge Showcase and from there three winners were chosen. The finalists this year seemed to be going to the peripheries as Pope Francis talks about. Learn more about the three winners and other nine finalists.

Pornography and sex addiction have run rampant throughout our culture and, as per reliable Catholic sources, impacts over 50% of Catholic men. The time has come to unite as a community to break this pattern and find freedom together through the channels of faith and fellowship. Come join us as we gather for support on the road to healing and recovery. Email Catholic in Recovery for more info or simply just show up.
