Al-anon:  Contact:  Al-anon Website
The purpose of Al-Anon is to  help families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend.  The program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service.  The only requirement for membership is that there is a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.  Meetings are Tuesdays at 7:30pm in the lower rectory.

Breast Cancer: St. Patrick’s Breast Cancer Support Group meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30pm in the Rectory Basement.  We are a group of women who have been afflicted with this disease and we meet to lend support to one another through our difficult times.

Do you have Prostate Cancer or do you know someone who does?
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men.  Over 30,000 men die from this cancer each year.  One in six men will get prostate cancer and yet, it is a very treatable disease if detected early through a simple blood screening test (PSA).

A Prostate Cancer Support and Information Group is available to answer your questions.  We explain information and resources available to you as you face dealing with this disease.  Emphasis is placed on trying to help you get answers to the wide range of personal questions and issues that you will have.  Prostate Cancer survivors who are willing to share their experience with the group are welcome.
