Help is available – right here at Saint Elizabeth.
 
“Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.  The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.  There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
 

The meeting schedule of the Second Chance group of AA is 7:00 pm on Thursdays and 9:00 am on Saturdays in the Children’s Chapel Building at Saint Elizabeth. Both meetings are open to anyone having an interest in Alcoholics Anonymous.  Contact phone numbers are 512-395-7211 and 512-787-6439.  Contact emails are EErdmann3@gmail.com and check6@austin.rr.com.  The links to the AA national and local websites are www.aa.org and www.austinaa.org.
 
The Second Chance folks  would be happy to meet with or speak with any member of the congregation who believes he or she might have a problem with alcohol.
