Date/Time: Friday, December 21nd at 6pm
Location: Hammond Street Congregational Church, 28 High Street, Bangor
Information: Homeless Vigil, followed by brief memorial and time of remembrance for those who passed away in homelessness this year.
Like many other communities across America, Bangor citizens and organizations will pause and acknowledge the passing of people who died without having a real home during the last twelve months. Most died alone, silently, and without public recognition. To remember our friends, the Homeless Vigil has been organized just after the first day of winter, the longest night of the year. Those who come to the Church will experience a special service, including music and personal reflections from folks who have experienced homelessness. Everyone is welcome to join us for this family friendly event.
Refreshments will be available following the program. Thank you to local businesses and community members who provided refreshments or volunteered for the event.
