Addiction has touched many families and taken too many of loved ones. All those living with addictions of any kind are invited to draw strength from one another in the power of faith at a Mass celebrated on Saturday, March 11 at 12:05 p.m. in the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
Father Dennis Gill, rector of the cathedral, will be the celebrant and homilist. Parking is available on the cathedral lot. The cathedral is located at 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.
Words from the 12 Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous may serve as a suitable theme for the Mass: “We admitted we were powerless over our dependencies, that our lives had become unmanageable. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”
