What is the Church's belief on suicide? A Catholic friend of mine recently took his own life, and his wife and child asked me what our church believed is his fate. Their priests said because he took his own life, he is going to hell. How can I help this family?

I think that is such a silly statement "He killed himself so he is going to hell." Tell them that the bible is just a guideline for a religion, and that their priest is not god himself. Therefore, if he lived a good life up untill that point, he will most likely go to the right place. (And this is comming from an atheist.) I'm sorry for your loss.
