Each January, Samaritans hosts a memorial service open to all suicide survivors. Those who attend range from people who have suffered a recent loss to people who are remembering a loved one lost to suicide years ago. Everyone is welcome to participate in this non-denominational service to commemorate and honor these loved ones – whether through submitting a song, a poem, or a letter for the event’s program; by saying a few words at the service; or simply by being present. As with all Samaritans programs, there is no fee for participation.
The Annual Memorial service will be held on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from 3:00 – 5:00PM at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, located at 630 Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington Center. Please note the change in date from the first weekend in January to the last weekend in January. Please contact Grief Support Services Manager Emily Britt at email@example.com or 617-536-2460 for more information or to RSVP.
