Pornography Recovery Group
A confidential support and recovery group is being formed for those that suffer from addiction to pornography, or feel they need help to stop viewing pornography. Meetings will take place monthly, in the early evening in Brandon, beginning in late June. This problem is very common, and will be addressed from a Catholic perspective and a psychological perspective. Separate groups will be formed for men and women. No cost. If you wish to attend, please email Deacon Mark at DcnDrMT@gmail.com. In the subject heading, please indicate “Group.”
