AARPSS offers Living Lent with the Lord, preparing for Easter in Boston – The Archdiocesan Addiction Recovery Pastoral Support Services (AARPSS), with its ministry in Instruments of Grace, is offering prayer and support with a focus on a spirituality of recovery during Lent.

Food and fellowship will be provided, and parking is available!
               Any parish interested in a Lenten or Easter offering to folks afflicted with the disease of addiction, loved ones affected or parishioners wanting to support and grow in faith and prayer of recovery are invited to reach out to us.
