We will gather in the South Parish Hall for a short remembrance, a Requiem Service, for those we’ve lost to overdose in our community. After the service we’ll proceed to Euclid to bless the new purple “Life Box” that will make naloxone available on the street 24/7. We’ll continue to offer harm reduction support (Narcan, fentanyl test strips, condoms) during food pantry twice weekly as well.

Once the prayers and blessings have concluded, we’ll gather for light refreshments before the food pantry opens.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
