Annual Alumni Picnic
Each year on the first Saturday in August, the Friars and Staff of the Inn work with the St. Christopher’s Inn Alumni Association to host an Alumni Picnic and Homecoming. All alumni from the Inn are welcomed, and many men travel from all over the east coast to be on the Holy Mountain of Graymoor for this celebration of Recovery. This year’s Alumni Picnic will be held on Saturday, August 5th.
The day begins at 8:30 am with a memorial Service outside St. Christopher’s Inn at the Memorial Brick Wall followed by 9:00 am Mass in Our Lady of the Atonement Chapel. There will be a 10:00 am Alumni Association Fellowship Meeting. A BBQ lunch follows at 11:15 at the Picnic Pavilion. Everyone is then welcomed to the Ballfield Pavilion for games such as softball, volleyball, and kickball. There will be a dunk tank and music along with a raffle that will be drawn around 3:45 pm. A shuttle will be running throughout the day to take guests to and from the various activity locations.
It is a wonderful day of celebrations, memories and encouragement for all those who are still struggling. There is hope and life after addiction in Recovery.
