Each year we lose thousands of people from drug overdose globally. Some survive but suffer a permanent injury, with devastating impact to their families and friends.
North East is not immune. You may have seen it, it has happened to people around you. Tomorrow, it could happen to someone you love. This is not an invisible issue.
International Overdose Awareness Day provides an opportunity for us to reflect on practical ways to prevent overdose in our community. Overdose is preventable. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose DOES save lives. Overdose Day events that aim to educate our communities about drugs can really help.
At St. Mary Anne’s, we are playing our part to support the day with a candlelight vigil onThursday, August 31 st at 7:00PM .
The event will help you understand how overdose affects every single one of us and how you can make a difference. During our service, we will ring our historic bell for everyone who has died by a drug overdose in Cecil County during the past year.
Let’s take a united stand against drug abuse. Please come and pray for our neighbors and our community.
