Many people know someone or some family who has experienced a loss to suicide. The Rev. Alfred Naseman will present "A Winter Morning of Blessed Assurance: Comforting Those Left Behind After Suicide" from 9 a.m. to noon on Feb. 8 at St. Patrick Church and Hall, 313 N. DePeyster St. in Kent.
This retreat morning will conclude with a memorial service for all those who in despair, guilt, shame and fear have killed themselves. The program will bring them all to Jesus who on the cross said "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do."
All adults are welcome. A light continental breakfast will be served. Those who plan to attend are asked to call 330-677-4453 in advance.
