Homeless Person’s Memorial Tuesday

IMG_1431_compressedTuesday, Dec. 17, CCH will co-host a candlelight vigil and memorial service to remember the Chicagoans who died while homeless in 2013.

Chicago’s Homeless Person’s Memorial will be held at 6 p.m. at Old St. Pat’s Church, 700 W. Adams. The hour-long service is free to the public.

As we gather in the shadow of the Magnificent Mile, we will remember that homelessness is a human struggle. Join us as we come together to remember the men and women struggled with homelessness. 

Senior Community Organizer Wayne Richard will host families from two shelters where he offers outreach, New Life and A Safe Haven. The families will enjoy a dinner at the church prior to the service.

This event is affiliated with National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day, one of more than 150 events held across the U.S. and organized by the National Coalition for the Homeless.

Co-hosting Chicago’s memorial service are the Ignatian Spirituality Project, the Harmony, Hope & Healing choir, and Old St. Pat’s Church.
