Recovery is Possible
Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. The individuals who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease in the same way any other person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) This truth has been the impetus of the mission and ministry of Guest House since 1956.
We welcome these individuals warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

Solemnity of Saint Joseph
Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24
Joseph never once asks, “What’s in this for me?”
Joseph is noted for his immediate yes-response to the task at hand. He lovingly takes Mary into his home at the call of the angel, and he provides a loving home no matter what the consequences are for him.
Instead of manipulating he complies with and accepts the Lord’s challenge in his life. Joseph points the way today.
When all our dreaming is over, let’s get up and discern loving strategies for dealing with the life we have and not the life we’d like to convince God to give us.
