PORTSMOUTH — In cooperation with the Providence Diocese’s St. Matthias Recovery Ministry, the next Mass on the East Bay for those in recovery will be celebrated at St. Barnabas Church, 1697 East Main Road, on Sunday July 13, at 5 p.m. This Mass focuses on recovery from alcoholism and addiction, as well as mental/emotional distress and anxiety. Those struggling with addiction, alcoholism and anxiety, as well as their family members, parishioners of St. Barnabas and the entire faith community are invited to attend. Masses to pray for those in recovery, which satisfy the Sunday obligation, are celebrated each quarter. For more information, or to participate in these Masses as lectors, altar servers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion or greeters, contact Deacon John Silvia at
