Homeless Persons' Memorial Day

12.01.16

On Wednesday, December 21, we celebrate Homeless Persons' Memorial Day. An occasion marked annually by communities across the country, we come together in Baltimore on this winter solstice and longest night of the year to honor our neighbors without homes who have died in the past year.

Please join us for remembrance, reflection and fellowship.

This year’s ceremony at War Memorial Plaza will feature the written and musical works of local artists; representatives of Baltimore’s faith community, with a keynote message by Latrelle Easterling, Bishop of the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church; and a litany in which all the names of those who have passed in the last year will be read.

Sponsored and coordinated by several organizations (see list below), the event serves as a beautiful and poignant pause at a particularly full time of year.

To spread the word, please download this flyer and distribute it far and wide.

Sponsoring organizations: Health Care for the Homeless, Bmore Housing for All, SHARP (Stop Homelessness And Reduce Poverty), Baltimore Homeless Youth Initiative and the Coalition for Homeless Children and Families.

 

For those who live north of the city, a memorial service will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, 130 Allegheny Avenue, Towson, MD 21204. Sponsored by Baltimore County Communities for the Homeless, the event will begin at 5:30 p.m.
