THE PROGRAM WILL FOCUS ON VARIOUS ASPECTS OF OA UNITY
Unity Day reaffirms the love and understanding shared by members of our Fellowship – with an emphasis on Tradition One:
“Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on OA unity.”
Unity Day is observed by OA worldwide with a moment of silence at 11:30 a.m. PT. on the last Saturday of February in even years and the last Sunday of February in odd years.
At our Louisville Metro Intergroup Unity Day program we will pause at 2:30 p.m. ET for a moment of silence to reaffirm the strength inherent in OA’s unity. Even if you can’t attend the celebration you are encouraged to pause, too, as a personal commitment to unity and to feel connected to the Fellowship.
