+An Episcopal Christian Community
Seeking Union with Christ
through Service to the Addicted.
We are a new community of men and women seeking an ever-deepening relationship with Christ and one another through committed lives of prayer, study, fellowship, and service.
We are named in honor of Sam Shoemaker, the Episcopal priest who introduced the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous to the spiritual principles and practices that led to the 12-Steps.
We are widely dispersed geographically, composed of members in various stages of formation. While founded within The Episcopal Church, we welcome Christians of all stripes who are active in 12-Step recovery and feel God's call to join us in exploring 21st century forms of Christian monasticism.
We are committed to the practice of Two Way Prayer and to the Four Standards of Absolute Honesty, Purity, Unselfishness, and Love.
