Wednesday meetings are topic meetings, during the first half of which members comment upon a specific question posed by someone in the group, followed by a general sharing period. Saturday meetings are speaker meetings, during the first half of which one OA member volunteers to share her or his experience, strength, and hope with the rest of the attenders. The second half of the meeting is opened for personal sharing. Sunday meetings are topic meetings the first Sunday of every month; the rest of the Sundays are literature meetings.

COST: Free! We do pass an optional collection basket around halfway through each meeting to help us pay for our room rental.

How To Access An OA Zoom Meeting

There are three ways you can access an online OA Zoom meeting:

by computer; by cell phone; and by land line telephone.

If You Have A Computer...

Type into your computer browser's URL one of the following Internet addresses. 

Type in the address, then press "enter" or "go" (depending on your browser).

• For the Santa Fe OA 8 am meetings, type in: https://zoom.us/j/748286152 
• For our Saturday's 10:30 am meeting, type in: https://zoom.us/j/425884262
• For our Monday 5:30 pm meeting, type in: https://zoom.us/j/983851226

You'll then see either (1) a popup window with the heading "Open Zoom Meetings" or

(2) a popup window with the heading "Video Preview". If the former, click on "Open Zoom Meetings",

whereupon the "Video Preview" window will appear on the screen.

[If nothing happens after a couple of minutes, 

(3) click on "download and run Zoom" to install the Zoom app on your computer.

Usually you won't have to do this, and if you do, you only need to do it once.]

If you're willing to be seen by other attenders,

at the Video Peview window, click on "Join with Video". 

If you'd rather nobody saw your image while you attend,

click on "Join without Video."

Whichever you choose, click last on "Join with Computer Audio".

The full Zoom screen should then appear with the

faces of other attendees visible.
