Jesus Prayer & the 12 Steps for Spiritual Health

Free Event - Next Session April 29, 2018 ~ St. Lucy Parish, Campbell

How do the 12 Steps found in many Anonymous Rehab Programs affect our Spiritual life? How can we grow into total dependence on God and not a dependence on things of this world? How can healthy detachments lead me to holy union with God?

Fr. Kevin Joyce will explore these questions in comparing the 12 Steps Program with our own spiritual journey.
