Alumnae and Alumni Network

Celebrate recovery through the sharing of experience, strength and hope

Each year, Guest House plans several seminars, workshops, and retreats to support clergy and religious recovery from various addictive disorders. The events are designed as an opportunity to celebrate recovery through the sharing of experience, strength, and hope by our retreat leaders and all those participating. Fellowship is critical, and time includes presentations, discussion, prayer, and rest.


Virtual Meetings


In addition to our in-person retreats, we offer several 12-step meetings via Zoom each week. These meetings are open to our alumni, other clergy, and men in recovery. Currently, they are scheduled for Monday and Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and Friday evenings at 8:00 p.m. For further information regarding these meetings, contact Jim Vander Schaaf at


What is NCCA

Over 70 years ago, the National Catholic Council on Addiction (NCCA) was formed to bring a message of healing and hope to addicted persons and those who love them. Affiliated with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the NCCA is committed to assisting its members to a greater awareness and acceptance of alcoholism, other chemical addictions, and prevention issues. With the support of Guest House, the NCCA is announcing a new initiative that seeks to connect people with existing resources in order to help bring healing and recovery to more people struggling with addictions.

Celebrate in fellowship
the gift of recovery

Guest House offers retreats periodically throughout the year to support women religious in recovery from various addictive disorders. These retreats are offered to our alumnae and other women religious in recovery. They are designed to reflect and celebrate the gift of recovery in fellowship with other sisters.


Virtual Meetings


To offer additional support to our alumnae, Guest House works with the Inter-Congregational Addictions Program (ICAP), a network of sisters in recovery. ICAP offers many weekly 12-step virtual meetings. For information regarding these meetings, contact Luann Brown, BVM, at
