Addiction and Recovery Care Ministry (ARC)

All interested Parishioners are invited to join the Addiction and Recovery Care Ministry (ARC) of Holy Comforter. This ministry is working to offer help and support to those in our community (and their families) struggling with addictions of all kinds. The ARC Ministry meets on the third Sunday of each month in McGill Hall (between the two later services) for education, support, discussion and fellowship. There are complimentary brochures on addiction and recovery in the narthex. Titles include: A Message to Teenagers: How to Tell When Drinking Becomes a Problem, AA at a Glance, Enabling, Functional Alcoholic, Is AA for You? Is There an Alcoholic in Your Life?, Prayers in Recovery, Problem Gambling, and more. If you are interested in speaking with one of the clergy or experienced parishioners, please contact the church office at 703-938-6521 or Alexandra MacCracken.
