St. Christopher’s Inn Alumni Association
The St. Christopher’s Inn Alumni Association (SCIAA) is a separate and independent 501c3 non-profit organization. It is the recognized Alumni organization for anyone who has ever stayed at the Inn, as well as anyone who has participated in the Community Day Program, or the Evening Program.
SCIAA holds business meetings on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 5:00 PM at St. Christopher’s Inn. After the business meeting, the alumni lead AA meetings in both the Nick Petruzzi Room and the Dining Room at the Inn for the current residents.
The association has chapters in several geographical regions, including South Florida, and are actively working to establish additional chapters on Long Island and Westchester, as well as Staten Island.
SCIAA holds some special events throughout the year including the Paul Manzo Memorial Breakfast, fireside meetings at Graymoor and family events in various geographic locations.
In addition, the St. Christopher’s Inn team works closely with the SCIAA to sponsor an annual Alumni Picnic and Homecoming on the first Saturday in August. The day begins with Mass in the Our Lady of the Atonement Chapel, followed by an SCIAA meeting, a BBQ lunch, softball, volleyball, dunk tank and live music. Hundreds of Alumni return every year to celebrate their recovery with the Friars and Staff who helped them on their journey.
SCIAA also holds an annual Tee Off Against Addiction golf fundraiser event. This year’s golf outing will be held on Monday, August 14, 2023 at Bethpage State Park’s Blue Course.
