Diverse faith and spiritual communities are coming together this afternoon (Sunday, October 25) from 4:00 to 5:00 pm for a time of reflection and healing in the wake of of teen suicides that have occurred over the past few months in the mid-Peninsula.

The setting is the chapel at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church (330 Ravenswood Ave.) where participants are invited to light a candle, walk the labyrinth, write a memory, say a prayer, or simply sit in silence. Organizers say: “You may come and go as you wish or stay the full hour.

As we approach the growing darkness of the season, All Souls Day, All Saints Day, and Dia de los Muertos, it seems fitting that we gather as people from all walks of life and spiritual paths to acknowledge our grief and experience the healing of community, ritual and spirit.” Spiritual leaders from diverse traditions will be available for counseling.
