Although the Basilica has no direct affiliation with either Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon,
we do make meeting space available to both groups.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.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 each other to recover from alcoholism.
Alcoholics Anonymous meets each Tuesday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Sacred Heart Hall.
Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who meet anonymously to share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. Although Al-Anon is separate entity from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Al-Anon is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from AA.
Due to recent construction plans involving the Convent Renewal Center, Al-Anon has temporarily relocated their meetings to Unity of the Keys located at 1011 Virginia Street.
The meeting takes place on Monday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
