If you are coming from out of town we suggest making a reservation at any Ventura hotel and driving to the Crowne Plaza as the rates at the Crowne Plaza are $379 per night. See hotels.com for a list of other hotels for as little as $99 per night, but don’t wait as there is a local event that is resulting in higher rates for that weekend.

We need volunteers on all three days to work at the registration table, to serve as greeters and to work the literature table. To volunteer, please call Susan R. at (805) 680-8371

February 2022 OA Events

Hand-in-handUNITY DAY

Feb 26 11:30am OA World Service Event Day
Unity Day is a day to celebrate the connection of all members and groups of OA to one another. At 11:30 a.m. local time, all members of OA are encouraged to take a moment of silence to express their gratitude for the OA Program.

UNITY PRAYER

(also known as ‘The OA Promise’ and ‘Rozanne’s Prayer’)

I put my hand in yours, and together we can do what we could never do alone. No longer is there a sense of hopelessness, no longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady willpower. We are all together now, reaching out our hands for power and strength greater than ours, and as we join hands, we find love and understanding beyond our wildest dreams.

UNITY DAY FELLOWSHIP EVENTS

Many OA intergroups worldwide host Unity Day events…just search the web for “oa unity day” or similar and see what fits your schedule.
