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. These meetings are strictly confidential. For more info see details below, email Catholic in Recovery, or simply just show up.
Catholic in Recovery (CIR) is a community of men and women ﬁnding freedom from a variety of addictions, compulsions, and unhealthy attachments by blending the spiritual wisdom of 12-step recovery with the sacramental life of the Catholic Church. CIR offers support for individuals and families through virtual and in-person recovery meetings, retreats, digital resources, and content overlapping recovery principles with Catholic traditions. The organization was founded by Scott Weeman, a Saint Brigid parishioner and previous Young Adult Coordinator.
Visit Catholic in Recovery and join CIR+ to ﬁnd help, learn more about addiction, connect with other CIR members, read recovery related articles, sign up to pray the CIR Novena, and ﬁnd other helpful resources. You are not alone and help is available, no matter how far down the scale you have gone. Contact Scott at 920.359.1110 or by email [email protected]

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.
