AA Celebrates 40 Years at St. Mary’s
On Monday night I joined more than 200 guests at a 40th anniversary celebration for the A. A. group that meets at St. Mary’s on Monday nights. It was a joyful meeting that celebrated the bonds of the group, their shared history and hope for continued well being.
The speakers at the meeting were two of the founding members of the weekly meeting. One told me the story of meeting with The Rev. Bill Berndt and asking for a place to meet. He shared with me that Rev. Berndt welcomed the group warmly and that the group has felt supported ever since.
Many members of the group asked me to pass on their gratitude to our congregation for our continued hospitality and longstanding relationship, and so, on their behalf I tell you all thanks!
