What It Is Like to Be Part of the St. Christopher’s Brotherhood

Written by Alex Thompson

As a man in recovery, I am grateful for another day, for another opportunity to start again, to wake up free and independent.

Today, I have the privilege of honoring the trust that I have earned.

Today, I work with others who share the same passion, the same goals, and the same motivations. They have the same purpose.

We are united by a greater good and we are connected by compassion.

I never thought of myself as a leader. But I have been down this road before. I know what it feels like to think you’re alone. To feel like no one else understands, to feel lost.

Here at St. Christopher’s, we are all connected. Here, we are found. This place put me on the path that got me where I am today.

I am so grateful.

Thank you, St. Christopher’s. You showed me the way and now I can show others.
