About Matt Talbot

Matt Talbot worked in a Dublin timber yard at the turn of the century. At an early age he became addicted to alcohol. He later experienced a spiritual conversion and went on to lead a life of asceticism and sanctity.

Matt Talbot Retreats

  • A Matt Talbot retreat is an opportunity for recovering alcoholics to enhance their spirituality and sober way of life, in a setting that promotes fellowship and sharing thoughout the weekend. The people who attend these retreats are all recovering alcoholics.
  • A Retreat Leader, who is usually a recovering alcoholic and trained in spiritual matters, gives conferences on varies broad topics several times during the weekend, bringing valuable insights into the spiritual element of the disease of alcoholism.
  • There is no affiliation between AA and Matt Talbot Retreats. However, Matt Talbot Retreats are intended to foster and enhance spiritual recovery as suggested by AA's Twelve-Step Program.
  • Retreat groups are independent organizations that conduct a set of retreats each year. Each group sets the cost for its retreats. Most of the cost goes to the retreat house for room and board.
