Lisa Thomas-Laury leads a conversation on opioid drug abuse on Wednesday, May 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the cafeteria of St. Bede Church, Holland.
A reporter and anchor for 6ABC News, Thomas-Laury has been seen in people’s homes throughout the region for over 35 years, and many consider her a trusted friend. Willing to put her face and reputation to the crisis of opioid addiction, she knows about this first hand.
As an investigative reporter whose husband is a doctor, Thomas-Laury knows well the saying, “If it can happen to me, it can happen to everyone.”
The opioid crisis is entering all our lives, direct or indirectly. Come and meet Lisa, hear her story and the resources gathered that may be able to help someone you love. The first 100 attendees will receive a free autographed copy of her book.
Those wishing to reserve a resource table at the event should contact Kris Ingle, RN, Parish Outreach Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-357-4113.
St. Bede Church is located at 1071 Holland Road, Holland, Bucks County
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
