Recovery Ministries

Recovery Ministries

Recovery Ministries seeks to minister to those who have lost their health and freedom through the disease of addiction. Recovery Ministries is an independent, nationwide network of Episcopal laity and clergy, dioceses and parishes, schools, agencies, and other institutions – all with a common commitment to address the use and misuse of alcohol and other drugs in relation to the Church’s mission.”

Recovery Ministries of The Episcopal Church seeks to:

  • Help the addicted and those who love them connect with spiritual resources and find lasting recovery.
  • Witness to Christ’s unfailing mercy by welcoming unchurched members of Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-Step programs into an Episcopal faith community.
  • Raise the awareness of bishops, and other clergy and leaders, about the disease of addiction and the redemption and grace found in recovery.
  • Strengthen recovering Episcopalians in the work of their recovery and help proclaim the Gospel in the world and carry their recovery into the Church.

Recovery Ministries Network serves as a voice of conscience to Episcopalians throughout the world, building awareness of pastoral and spiritual ministry to those addicted. The original concept for Recovery Ministries’ mission dates from the landmark 1979 General Convention resolution on alcohol.
