Alcoholics Anonymous, A.C.O.A., and Al-Anon

The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields is host to three A.A. meetings each week, in the Houston Room of the Parish House:
8 p.m. - Sunday
8 p.m. - Tuesday
6:30 p.m. - Thursday

The Tuesday night group is the oldest A.A. meeting in Philadelphia. The Thursday night meeting focuses on the spirituality of recovery and often meets outside during clement weather. St. Martin’s supports recovery as an important form of spiritual growth that saves lives and we strive to be a community that values sobriety and the values of the 12 steps.

St. Martin’s also hosts an Adult Children of Alcoholics (A.C.O.A.) meeting on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the Library of the Parish House.

In addition, an Al-Anon group meets Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the Smith Room of the Hilary House.

Most recently added, a Women’s 12 Step Group meets on 3rd Sundays at 4 p.m. in the Library of the Parish House.
