We have uploaded all the current content from our “Podcasts” page to this new channel, and we will be adding more content from local speaker meetings and future workshops and retreats as they become available. Enjoy!

t would be great if everyone spread the word and we grew the committee because our work is so necessary…so many people out there need us, and we need them as well!

Extra! Extra! Calling All Women…Volunteers Needed for Women’s Retreat

The second annual O.A. Women’s Retreat is coming up in September at St. Mary’s Seminary in gorgeous Santa Barbara.

The retreat committee is putting out a call to all women interested in attending the retreat and strengthening their recovery through service. The committee is looking to fill  several service positions both before and at the retreat.

The committee also really needs craft items: magazines, stickers, glue, ribbons and other miscellaneous fun stuff for use in collages.

If you have an interest in filling a service position for the retreat or donating craft items, please click on the link: O.A. Women’s Retreat, for more information.

Call to Service

“If you want to pump up your program beyond your wildest dreams, give service!” (A Step Ahead, Vol. 14, No. 8, P.1)

Channel Islands Intergroup needs your help! We have several service positions  open and there are many ways you can serve.  Any form of service that helps reach a fellow sufferer adds to the quality of our own recovery. As OA’s responsibility pledge states: “Always to extend the hand and heart of OA to all who share my compulsion; for this, I am responsible.”

For ideas on how you can serve, please click on the Call to Service Flyer.
