PASS IT ON
Recovery, Unity, Service—these are the Three Legacies given to the whole membership of AA by its founders and their fellow old-timers.
Carrying the message of recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic is the basic service the AA fellowship gives; it is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence.
Therefore, AA is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.
Thus, an AA service is anything that helps us reach a fellow sufferer—whether it be 12-Step work, with one alcoholic working with another, to a simple phone call or cup of coffee, all the way to AA’s General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services is our Third Legacy of Service.
FIND A HOME GROUP
Most AA members find it important to belong to one group which they call their Home Group. Although all members are usually welcome and feel at home in any group, this is the group where they accept responsibilities and try to sustain friendships.
To become a member of a group is simple! Go to the meeting and ask the chairperson how to join. Most groups have a membership book to sign. Attend the monthly business meeting for the group, and ask other group members how you can help! Press here for more information about AA groups.
McNabb Sunday Morning meetings are sponsored by Intergroup, but are hosted each month by a different AA group. The meeting is held weekly at 11 AM on Sunday mornings at McNabb Community Center (Assembly Hall).
The following are group and individual commitments for the current month:
Our telephone answering service operates from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm daily. Shifts are 3 hours and may be fulfilled in the Intergroup Office or remotely.
To volunteer for a shift, or to join the 12-Step call list, please email the TAS Coordinator.
Our fellowship hosts daily 7:00 PM meetings at Ottawa Withdrawal Management Centre (Detox). Guidelines for service may be found here.
If you or your group are interested in hosting OWMC or other facility meetings, please contact the CFT Committee.
An important way to do service is to share our experience, strength and hope.
