World Suicide Prevention Day leaflet

Truro Cathedral will be open from 10:00 to 15:00 on World Suicide Prevention Day, Thursday 10th September 2020.

Those who have been affected by suicide are invited to drop in for a moment of quiet reflection or to light a candle in memory if someone who had died.

It is not possible this year, due to Covid-19, to hold the annual service fo people affected by suicide. Instead, The Suicide Liaison Service has been invited to provide an opportunity at Truro Cathedral on World Suicide Prevention Day to invite those who are impacted by suicide to visit for a quiet moment of reflection, light a candle, or talk with a member of Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trusts’s Chaplaincy Team, or the Suicide Liaison Service, or a cathedral Chaplain – all who well be available at tie=mes throughout the day.

We very much look forward to seeing you on the 10th. All are welcome, of the faiths or none. If you are not able to visit the cathedral, you can light a virtual candle in remembrance by clicking the ‘Light a Virtual Candle, link on the homepage of the cathedral’s website:
