Flourishing After Five YearsThe Beginners Meeting
Beginners Meeting takes place at three o.clock on Saturday
afternoons at Our Lady of Lourdes R. C. Church on Sherbourne
Street just north of Wellesley. Our first meeting, at the
Church of St. Simon the Apostle on Bloor Street East, was
held on November 7, 1997. At that first meeting there were
three AA members: one beginner, who no longer lives in Toronto,
Bob I., Rox Glen Traditional Group, and myself, St. Jamestown
quickly others came to us. Today our attendance varies between
ten and 25, usually around 20. Our talk is focused on what
first brought me to AA. and what brought me to this meeting.
We hear honest and compassionate comments.
meeting is sponsored by the St. Jamestown Group, and draws
a diverse attendance. Anyone is welcome . drunks, newcomers,
members of the general public, family . anyone. We hope
and intend to carry on as we have to date.
the occasion of our fifth anniversary, we say a sincere
and honest, .Thank you,. to all who have ever attended our
meeting. We also extend our heartfelt thanks to Our Lady
of Lourdes Church, to St. Jamestown, and to all of you.
And, God Bless...
