Catholic Recovery will be moving

This is the contents of an email sent out to all members of Catholic Recovery

“This is for all who are member of the Catholic Recovery social network:

Catholic Recovery is undergoing some changes.

The Network is moving to a new location and will have a new name. The move is because Ning, the current host, is eliminating all free networks as of August 20th and is starting to charge fees.

Our network did have plans in place to continue, however, due the the state of the economy affecting myself and the other members who offered to support the site, remaining on Ning is no longer an option. Perhaps this is God’s will as in fact a much better situation fortuitously became available.

A CR member and good friend of mine has his own hosting account that he is sharing with me for some projects that we are working on. He suggested that I move CR to this new host, and as a result, I am.

The site will have a new name: “Recovery for Christ”. While the old name “Catholic Recovery” was nice, and described its purposes, the new name better identifies who we recover for, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We ultimately recover for Him, to be the persons we were created to be. It is also more in line with the Matt Talbot Way of recovery, in which you transfer your love for alcohol or other addictions onto a love for Jesus.

In addition, “Catholic Recovery” or “Recovering Catholics” is too often used by people who feel they need “recovering” from Catholicism. Hence, a name change. It will still be the same site, just a new name.

I am in the process of moving all of the current site content to the new site. I do not know how long that process is. So hopefully all the old forums, blogs, photos, videos and Groups will be soon available at the new location. Just in case the migration doesn’t go as planned, if there is any content such as videos and photos, or forum postings that are of interest, you may want to download or copy-and paste sometime before August 20th. After that date, Catholic Recovery will be gone from its current location.

As a part of this process, you should receive another email with activation instructions for your account at Recovery for Christ. Part of the migration process involves the sending out of account activation emails. If you get this, then you’ll know that things went well and the new site is up and running. There may be a few things to sort out afterward, but all the familiar stuff should be there. Just click on the link in the email and you’ll be taken to the new site.

If that doesn’t work, you’ll get an invitation from me.

With that, I hope to see you soon over there!”

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
