Annual Men’s Alumni Reunion: Being Sober in Today’s Church

August 3-6, 2020
Kahler Hotel
Rochester, Minnesota


Retreat Leader: Fr. Brian Clary

Overview: In a series of presentations and discussions we will reflect upon the many ways we have embraced recovery over the years especially in the midst of the challenges that the Church and society have experienced. The foundations of our lives such as our promises at ordination or religious life, adherence to the principals of recovery and our own experience, strength and hope will be a source of spiritual refreshment during our time together.

Father Brian Clary is a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston who currently is Pastor of Saint Ann and Saint Brendan Parishes in Dorchester and is Director of the Priest Recovery Program for the Archdiocese. He is a 1998 alum of Guest House and is a past member of the Men’s Advisory Board.
