Mercy Street Ministry
Trinity Church’s Mercy Street Ministry was established in early 2017 in memory of Emmett Scannell, the son of a member of our parish, who died of an overdose in 2016 at the age of 20.
Our goal is simply to provide a safe, supportive, judgment-free gathering place where those affected by a loved one’s addiction to either alcohol or drugs can learn more about the disease and its devastating impact as well as keep abreast of the latest options for treatment and recovery.
At Mercy Street’s monthly meetings, we share a potluck meal and fellowship as we listen to a speaker. Over the years, we’ve had a wide-range of guest speakers offer a variety of perspectives on Substance Use Disorder at Mercy Street – people involved on the court system side; treatment and medical professionals; people in organizations like Alanon, Learn to Cope and PCO Hope; people who run grief support groups; and people who share their personal stories of addiction, recovery, or loss.
Mercy Street meets at Trinity Episcopal Church – 91 Main Street, Bridgewater, MA – at 6:30 PM on the last Wednesday of each month.
All are welcome! For more information, call or text: 617-939-3530
