Welcome to Matt Talbot Group #109

The purpose of a Matt Talbot Retreat is to assist alcoholics with their spiritual journey. Our retreats are facilitated by a retreat master and  are centered on the 3rd and 11th steps.

Our men's retreats are held at the DaySpring Episcopal Conference Center in Ellenton, Florida. Our retreat masters are also members of our fellowship. Sign-in begins at 4:00 pm on Friday. The retreat starts with dinner on Friday at 5:30PM and ends Sunday morning. The registration fee includes all meals. If you plan to attend, the total cost is $140 (economy) or $185 (semi-private). The semi-private lodging is on a first-come first-serve basis.
