From the first permanent Scientology Volunteer Ministry serving the inner-city of Boston to the Boston volunteers who have traveled the world to assist in disaster relief, you will find the help and information you need here regarding Boston's Volunteer Minister program.

The Scientology religion welcomes people of all faiths and traditions. The goal of our program to assist everyone who calls. If you are looking for personal help, a minister can be provided. If you are looking for training on how to assist another, there too the Boston Volunteer Minister program offers everything from free seminars to certified and professional training.

The headquarters for local Volunteer Minister activities is the Church of Scientology of Boston located in the historic and beautiful Back Bay overlooking the Charles River, a five minute walk from the Hynes Convention Center train stop on the green line. The Church has also established another outpost in the inner-city of Boston that provides free community service. Located in Lower Roxbury, the ministry has been active for three years. For news about the work of the ministry read this article by the Boston Globe.

"If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER...."
L. Ron Hubbard


There is a way to rebuild education and the Boston Scientology Ministry is leading the way with its free Reading and Study Skills program, and the new Education Assessment.

A simple practical technology of how to study and learn has been developed and Volunteer Ministers are trained in how to put these tools into effect utillizing The Technology of Study, by L. Ron Hubbard. The Reading and Study Skills program routinely tutors those behind in their studies and advances them years in only a matter of months. While the new Education Assessment is geared toward finding the exact barrier you are having in your studies and recommending a complete handling that does not resort to mind altering drugs for attention and learning problems.

For information on how you can volunteer, get trained or receive help call Rev. Robert Castagna at (617) 927-2247. The Ministry is located at 1783 Washington St., Boston, MA 02115. For more information on Mr. Hubbard's study methods visit


Volunteer Ministers from throughout New England have been trained up on assists technology, a simple and easy method to help the spirit recover from pain, trauma and illness. Once trained volunteers like Michele Drew and Ksenia Castagna have traveled to as far away as Indonesia to assist Tsunami victims, and then only months later to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in Mississippi. For information on disaster relief visit Scientology Disaster Response.

These techniques also have a much broader range and use. Because people get hurt and sick in the business of living, the "assists" taught in this booklet can be applied any time, anywhere to bring spiritual relief from pain and suffering. If you need assistance please call the Church of Scientology of Boston at (617) 266-9500. Also ask about the free Assist Seminars and the certified professional training available.
