Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition To Hold Candlelight Vigil On October 5

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition is holding a Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday, October 5, from 6pm to 8pm, on the Wilmington Town Common.

The vigil gives residents of Wilmington and surrounding communities an opportunity to remember those they have lost to the disease of addiction and come together to reduce the stigma associated with addiction.

This night of healing and hope will include:

  • Father Earley from St. Thomas of Villanova leading participants in prayer
  • Wilmington Police Department
  • Mary Giroux sharing her story and how her son Josh struggled with addiction
  • Addicts in recovery speaking about their story & share experiences
  • Community resource table showing substance abuse organizations in the area
  • Learn2Cope, Alicia’s Angels, Magnolia New Beginnings, Matt Ganem of Banyon Treatment Center
  • Music by Vin Colella, Steve Dineen, Rene Marcou, and John Murphy
  • Slideshow in honor of our lost loved ones

The event’s organizers wish to thanks Mary Giroux of Remax Encore, Floral Dreams and WHS volunteers.
