They stand silently, making us pause….making us aware…..they are men and women, young and not so young……loved and mourned……..
Immaculate Conception Parish will host the “Silent Silhouettes” on June 30th, July 1st, July 7th and July 8th. This program was developed to help bring awareness to the opioid addiction problem in our community, and to help us all remember those who lost their lives to this illness. Opioid overdoses jumped 30% between July 2016 and September 2017 in 45 states, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The Midwest saw a 70% spike over the same period. Ohio was ranked 2nd in the country for unintentional drug poisoning in 2016. We are all affected by this issue. Come learn about these Silent Silhouettes, come pray with us, come and be a part of the healing process.
