Retreat Speaker Reverend Phil Feltman was born in Toledo, Ohio, and entered the seminary upon completing 8th grade. In 1966, Father Feltman was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Toledo. For nine years, Father Feltman served as an associate pastor in two parishes. He also taught and served as head of the Religion Department of Tiffin Calvert High School, while being the Neuman Chaplain at Heidelberg College and chaplain at the Tiffin Franciscan Mother House for six years. Father Feltman then served as pastor in Vermillion for twelve years and in Sandusky for eighteen years. He is a grateful Guest House graduate, and over the years, has attended many of the Guest House Alumni retreats and seminars. Currently, Father Feltman is retired from full-time ministry and enjoys spending his time hunting, fishing and golfing.

“The Journey of Recovery” is the title of this winter seminar. We are all on the journey of recovery. Our stories are all the same, and yet they are all different. We did not start out from the same place. In every journey there are detours, delays and unexpected events. We will look at some of these twists and turns, and share our experience with them. We know that as alcoholics, drinking alcohol has a life-changing effect on us. But for some, alcoholism has a deep effect even before picking up that first drink. I also want to share with you the dimension of recovery that suggests our journey consists of two stages: putting down the drink and picking up a new way of living. All I can do is share my story and invite you to share yours.
