Each January, Samaritans hosts a memorial service open to all suicide loss survivors. Samaritans’ Annual Memorial allows us to come together to remember and honor our loved ones whom we have lost to suicide. Those who attend range from people who have suffered a recent loss to people who are remembering a loved one lost years ago. It is an opportunity to reconnect, support one another, and share memories. Everyone is welcome to participate in the non-denominational service – 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. We will have a memorial table to display pictures or mementos during the service. There will be a social hour directly after the service until 6:00 p.m. and guests are welcome to bring sweets or appetizers to share. As with all Samaritans programs, there is no fee for participation.

To RSVP, please email Emily Davis, Manager of Grief Support Services, at Please submit any contributions for the program book by January 17.
