A variety of groups share in the great facilities and grounds of St. Joseph Parish. We are happy to provide space and support to these related groups.
Although St. Joseph's does not directly sponsor an A.A. Chapter, the parish provides a meeting place on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 p.m. in Hughes Hall. This program of total abstinence helps members maintain sobriety through sharing experience, strength, and hope at group meetings and through the suggested Twelve Steps for recovery from alcoholism. For more information, contact the Parish Office (330-274-2253) or visit the Alcoholics Anonymous site @ http://www.alcoholics-anonymous.org
