MD—As part of its service to Wicomico Goes Purple (WGP), St. Peter’s
Episcopal Church offers a meditative program of “Hope and Remembrance for Those
Struggling With Addiction,” on September 15, during Third Friday downtown. Starting at
6:30 p.m. and lasting approximately half an hour, it will include music, readings and the
opportunity to light a candle in support, honor or memory of a loved one struggling with
the disease.

People of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to this contemplative program.  “We are
brought together by the desire to help and heal not only those who are suffering from
addiction, but also the family and friends who love them,” said Pastor Greg Harbaugh.
Supported by the church’s St. Cecilia Guild, which provides music outreach to the
community, its director James Wallace and other parish musicians are participating.
Admission is free.

One of the purposes of WGP is to promote thoughtful conversations about substance
abuse, and the church will remain open throughout the evening for those who may wish
to use it for contemplation and conversation. Outdoors, it also will be selling freshly
grilled burgers, hotdogs and soft drinks in the courtyard for visitors.

The church is located at 115 St. Peter’s St. For more information call 410-742-5118 or
