Homeless Persons Annual Memorial Vigil

Portland’s Homeless Persons
Annual Memorial Vigil
Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.

The longest night of the year is a time to remember our homeless friends who have died and to recommit ourselves to the task of ending homelessness.

A candlelight procession will start at the Preble Street Resource Center at 4:00 p.m. and will proceed to Monument Square for a ceremony dedicated to those persons who have died in our community.

All persons who are homeless, who have been homeless, who work with people who are homeless, or who are thankful they are not homeless are welcome to participate.

Lewiston-Auburn Candlelight Vigil

Please meet at Trinity Episcopal Church at Spruce and Bates Streets (247 Bates Street) in downtown Lewiston.
We will walk together to Calvary United Methodist, the church in the triangle at Sabattus and College Street.
Please bring a donation of non-perishable or canned food for Trinity Jubilee Center at the beginning of the vigil. We will walk up Bates to Main, right onto Sabattus, and end in front of Calvary; join at any point along the route. We will conclude outside in front of Calvary to raise awareness; soup and refreshments will be available inside.
