Recovery Retreat: Steps 1 – 3

June 24, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - June 26, 2022 @ 12:00 pm


This retreat has now reached capacity.  Please call the office at 404 255 0503 if you are interested to join a wait list, for a call in the event of a cancellation.  Thank you for your understanding.

Directed by Fr. Tom Weston, SJ

No one wants to experience failure but if you feel powerless and unmanageable, failure feels like a constant companion. This eye-opening retreat, led by Tom Weston, SJ, brings prayerful focus to Steps 1-3 of the Alcoholics Anonymous method for sobriety. Be reminded of the abundant sources of grace that exist outside yourself to guide you to freedom. Your sponsor, the Big Book and fellowship are a few of the tools that provide wisdom, support and a path toward the loving guidance of a Higher Power. This retreat allows you to add Ignatian Spirituality to your tool chest.

IMPORTANT: This retreat is not suitable for anyone in acute withdrawal. Please consult a behavioral health hospital. This retreat serves those seeking ongoing motivation for sobriety maintenance.


This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
The retreat will occur simultaneously with a retreat for family and friends of those affected by addiction. Activities will be separate; meals will be shared.

Fr. Tom Weston, SJ, entered the California Province of the Jesuit Order in 1965 and was ordained a priest in 1978.  Currently based in Oakland, CA, he has devoted most of his priestly life to counseling and retreat work with alcoholics and other addicts.   Wherever he is, Fr. Weston sees the power of God working in people’s lives, but perhaps most acutely in his recovery work:  “People get well. People come back to life. Families come back together,” he says.  “It’s the Resurrection—and you see it all the time.”


This retreat is $305. The fee includes a private room and bath, delicious, healthy meals and access to our 20-acre forested campus and private walking trails. You can pay in full for registration, or pay a 50% deposit of $152.50 for registration with the balance due 14 days prior to arrival.
