Desertmartin Pioneer Total Abstinence Association

logo2PTAA members seek to address alcohol-related problems in society, mainly through prayer, self-denial, and the promotion of positive life-styles.

The mission of the Pioneer Total Abstinence Association is to address the problems in society caused by excess alcohol consumption and drug usage. We do this through:

  • Faith and prayer
  • Self denial
  • Example
  • Activities based on presenting alternatives to individuals, particularly the young
  • Advocacy

Our vision – based on the love in the Heart of Christ, as expressed in The Gospels – is to help to build a society where people live to their full potential and alcohol can be enjoyed in moderation avoiding the ills that arise in society from excess in its use.

Rev Peter Madden: Spiritural Director
Mr Brendan Moran: President
