The 3 Stated purposes of the Calix Society

Sobriety - is a requirement not an option

Participation - in Holy Mass and group discussion

Becoming - the person that God wants us to be

The Calix Society is for recovering alcoholics who want to draw on their Catholic faith as a sure path to serenity without alcohol. It offers a Catholic ministry to people in recovery and their families, deepening faith and sharing the healing mercy of God. Calix embodies the Catholic Church’s growing emphasis on the “New Evangelization” as encouraged by His Holiness Pope Francis. 


 Meetings begin every Friday in the parish church at 7.00 pm. The meetings after Mass have a different focus each week of the month – ranging from a fresh introduction to the basics of Catholic faith, Meditation, Step Recovery, reflection on the Gospels, Reconciliation and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Visitors welcome from all 12 step programmes, especially Alcoholics Anonymous and AlAnon.
