Be an Answer to Prayer for Our Suicide Bereaved by Kay Hockey
Each year over 44, 000 people in the US die by suicide and are survived by over 350,000 loved ones. The bereaved experience trauma, a relentless search for “why,” and profound guilt. Because those around them are often awkward as they try to be of support, those grieving can feel isolated. Stigma also affects the suicide bereaved and can foster a sense of shame, embarrassment, and even fear. For a person of faith, suicide death can and often does trigger a deep faith crisis.
Some Catholics are still unaware that the Church’s stance toward suicide death is one of hope. The Church maintains that only God knows a person’s deepest heart that place beyond illness, confusion, and pain. Only He can rightly judge each of us at our death. Hence unlike in years past, Catholics bereaved of suicide are encouraged to have a Catholic funeral and burial for their loved one and be consoled themselves.
Due to the unique experiences of suicide bereavement and requests for a support group, I’ve been asked by Beth Lukes, director of The Family Life Office at ASF to develop this ministry. As a Catholic counselor and one who has experienced suicide loss, I am pleased to have the opportunity.
One person cannot launch, facilitate, and sustain a suicide support group. It must be a coordinated team effort where committed volunteers know and support each other. We need six or more volunteers who have experienced suicide loss and are willing to help. We will meet for a few weeks before launching the group in order to get to know each other, develop a mutually supportive atmosphere, and organize.
Call me, Kay Hockey at 353-2466 for more information.
