Luminary Service In St. Marys On September 27th

 

Addiction is a stigma. Why don't they just stop? Don't they know how much we love them?" It's not that easy, and it can't be done alone. Addiction is a disease like cancer and diabetes. Cures are lengthy  and require the cooperation of the addict.

 

We must offer respect, a helping hand, love and understanding. We need to stop wagging our fingers and shaking our head in judgment.

 

Prevention is the key. You are invited to a Luminary service to bring attention to this subject, on Saturday, September 27th at 6 p.m., on the Diamond in St. Marys. Please come and light a candle to honor or remember a loved one who has been touched by addiction

 

Participating in the event will be St. Marys Mayor, Bob Howard, Pastor Tim Hoover from First United Methodist Church. Patty Greene, a surviving mother and coordinator for the event, Adam, a recovering addict, 6 years clean, Shawn McMahon, Elk County District Attorney, Heidi Stahlnicker, CEO of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Anthony Pistner, St. Marys Police Officer and Father Ross.
