The Addictions Recovery Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana announces
WOMEN'S RECOVERY WEEKEND 2019
"Finding Your True Self in Sobriety"
January 18-20, 2019
Solomon Episcopal Conference Center
The Addictions Recovery Ministry will host our annual Women's Weekend January 18-20. 2019 at the Solomon Episcopal Conference Center.
Our theme for the weekend is "Finding Your True Self in Sobriety".
The theme of this weekend is Finding Your True Self in Sobriety. Our facilitator is Denise Marsters, who is the founder and chief executive officer of The McCoy House for Sober Living in Jackson, Mississippi. Denise is a therapist by profession and has worked in the field of addiction for 22 years. Denise has been in recovery for over 24 years and has much to offer for all of us. Denise believes in a holistic approach to recovery where she incorporates the twelve steps with other modalities of well-being which include yoga, meditation, diet, and exercise, art, dance, nature, etc. During our time together, we will have an opportunity to share Morning Prayer, Holy Eucharist, 12-step meetings, Reconciliation, and Spiritual Direction. This weekend is a great opportunity for relaxing, reflecting, renewing, and visiting. It is a wonderful gift to ask for or to give yourself.
The weekend begins with supper at 6:30 pm on Friday, January 18 and ends on Sunday, January 20, about noon, following a 12-Step Eucharist. You may check in on Friday after 3pm. However, you may arrive at SECC as early as 1pm on Friday. On Friday night we will gather in the lodge at 7:30pm for Denise's first session.
The cost of the weekend is $195 per person(multiple occupancy) and includes a room for two nights, Friday night supper, three full meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Sunday lunch is not provided. Check out time is Sunday 10am. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required and should be sent along with the registration form no later than December 30, 2018. Requests received after that date may not be honored.

The Addictions Recovery Ministry (ARM) of the Episcopal Church helps recovering Christians find a home within the Church. ARM seeks to provide education, guidance, and support for families struggling with, or wishing to learn more about addiction. Our desire is not to be dogmatic or exclude anyone in their spiritual search, but to live out the acceptance and love taught by Jesus.
