Northstar Family Support Project’s 11th Annual Service of Commemoration and Hope.

Northstar Annual Service on October 10, 2019







Northstar Family Support Project’s Annual Service of Commemoration and Hope.

Since 2009 the Northstar Family Support Project has been hosting its Annual Service of Commemoration and Hope for the city of Limerick and surrounding areas. The idea of holding such a special evening is to remember our loved ones who have been sadly lost through drug and alcohol misuse.

Furthermore, the goal is to offer support and hope to the families who have been left behind, and to those dealing with addiction in their lives and those in recovery.

On Thursday October 10, the Annual Service of Commemoration and Hope will get underway at 7 pm at the Augustinian Church on O’ Connell Street. The evening will involve songs, music, poetry, and personal stories around addiction.  

The participants of the Knit & Natter group in Northstar have been working hard on making beautiful hearts that are included in the care bags, which each person will receive when entering the church.

They have also been instrumental in creating the focal piece for the service which will be on display over the altar. It represents the Northstar, people coming together to get support, and the strength people have gained from trusting and embracing hope. As well as the healing they have found and the nurturing they have experienced throughout their self-exploration.

We would love you to join us at this beautiful event on October 10, 2019.

All are welcome!
