While our physical room at St. Mary the Virgin is not meeting we encourage you to come join our Zoom meeting every Friday at 6pm or you can download some of our speakers You can also check out our newest Podcast. We are a literature based meeting that focuses on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous as a solution to our overeating. We also give away little Big Books at our physical meetings.
Our format consists of readings from the Big Book pertaining to a particular step followed by 2 Big Book Qualified Speakers who will share with us specifically how they have taken and/or work said step as described in this section of the Big Book
