Al-Anon and an A.A.

Before the closure of the cathedral building, these groups met in the cathedral weekly. We hope to welcome them back as soon as possible.


The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope, in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions

The Capitol Hill Al-Anon Family Group meets on Mondays at Noon in Cathedral House Room 210. Questions? Email organizer Hadley Morrow at, or call 509.954.0831.


Alcoholics Anonymous

The A.A. Broadway group meets on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. in Bloedel Hall. Questions? Email organizer Kurt Lantz at or call 206.949.2953.
