Recovery Retreat for Men
Our Matt Talbot Retreats are held on designated weekends and devote time for spirituality in recovery from alcoholism. Our retreats bring together a group of recovering alcoholics in a setting that promotes fellowship and sharing throughout the weekend.

Most retreats focus on one broad topic for the weekend. Our retreat-masters are usually both recovering alcoholics and members of the clergy, which brings valuable insight into the spiritual realm of alcoholism.

As a group of recovering alcoholics, we recognized the need for a connection with a power greater than ourselves. Our solution is to use the Matt Talbot spiritual retreat weekend to find how to utilize the tools suggested in the Twelve Steps. Our retreats offer conferences, discussion group break-out sessions, discussion & speaker meetings, one-on-ones, and the Celebration of the Eucharist. The Matt Talbot Retreats are non-denominational, ecumenical, and are spiritual, rather than specifically religious. All faiths are welcome.

Retreat Director

Fr. Emmet Murphy OFM

Although I was raised at St. Agnes in Arlington, Mass. — a parish staffed by diocesan priests — I was one of the nine candidates who joined the Franciscans of Holy Name in 1951. St. Anthony Shrine in downtown Boston happened to be my first contact with the friars. Their joy and ministry immediately impressed me.

After working for ten years as a salesman in Boston, I entered the Franciscan brothers training program in Rye Beach, N.H., followed by a year in the novitiate in Paterson, N.J. During these formative years, we practiced discipline and learned the rule of the Order of Friars Minor, plus the history of the Order and of the Province. My love for the Order and Province grew deeper.

In mid-summer 1957, I was transferred from the lush rolling hills of the scenic Delaware Valley at St. Joseph Seraphic Seminary in Callicoon, N.Y., to the gritty, noisy, busy streets of midtown Manhattan, a half-block from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden. It proved to be quite an adjustment for me. As always, the community of friars — 77 in number — at St. Francis of Assisi Church on 31st Street was welcoming and fraternal.
