28 Nov Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day Vigil
Tragically, some of our most vulnerable neighbors die on the streets each year. On December 21, 2017, at The First Presbyterian Church, 11 Springfield Ave, Cranford, NJ at 7:00pm , a vigil will be held for those who have died in the last year.
We remember them on the day with the least amount of daylight and the longest night because it symbolizes the struggle of those who are homeless, and who often live out their lives on cold streets or in dangerous abandoned buildings.
As people of faith we are all called to serve the poor, the homeless, the sick, the hungry….
Remind us, O God, that we cannot rest full secure in our homes each night until all your children have a place to call home.
