Mission Statement

Boston's Scientology Volunteer Ministry aims to provide free community service to the Boston community that reduces the violence. Examples of such programs are the Reading and Study Skills project and the non-violence program called the Way to Happiness.


The Scientology Volunteer Ministry was established by Rev. Robert Castagna in the summer of 2004 to assist the community in reducing the crime and violence. The Volunteer Minister program was originally created by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology in the mid 1970's. Mr. Hubbard concluded that crime was rising in direct proportion to the decline of religious influence in society and thereby developed the volunteer minister movement as a means to provide practical assistance to those in need. The ministry's programs are available to the citizens of Boston free of charge and regardless of race, color or creed. The Ministry was established by the Church of Scientology of Boston and is located at 1783 Washington Street in the South End/Lower Roxbury area. The ministry is open to people of all ages and seeks to empower the individual through literacy, morals and other free services. The ministry also assists other agencies in setting up literacy and non-violence programs by providing materials and training. Routine days of operation are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:00 to 6:00 and by special appointment. One-on-one tutoring is offered to assist those individuals who are having difficulty with their schooling and a complete phonics program is available to those in need of improved reading skills. Routine events are available to the public that provide parenting and community service skills. Such events include the "How to Reduce the Violence with Effective Education" program. This program is also available for presentations at other agencies.
