The Church teaches that suicide is contrary to love for the living God. We are stewards, not owners, of the life God has entrusted to us. It is not ours to dispose of.

However, the church also teaches that we should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. We can only commend them to God. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for repentance and salvation.

We continue to offer our prayers for the soul of Mayor Timothy Davlin and for his family and friends in this time of sorrow.
