The purpose of the Homeless Persons Memorial Service is to honor those in the homeless community who have passed in the last year. Some of those people who died didn’t get a memorial service, there was no one to mourn them. Please join us.
Meet at Peterborough United Methodist Church on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 4:45 pm for a Candlelit Procession to the Town House.
A candlelight vigil is offered for National Homeless Memorial Day in downtown Peterborough on Friday, December 21st, the longest night of the year. We gather to remember those in our region, country, and throughout the world who have died due to homelessness and hardship. The local sponsor is Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter (MATS). MATS strives to provide shelter and a connection to other community resources to individuals, couples, and families who are homeless in the Monadnock region. The vigil is outside the Peterborough Town House at 5:00 pm. For more information on the Peterborough event contact MATS at 603-924-5033 or on Facebook.
Please join us for a free soup dinner at PUMC immediately following the vigil.
At 7 pm PUMC has an Open Mic Night.
This event is being sponsored by All Saints’ Church, Peterborough United Methodist Church, and Union Congregational Church. You may park in any of the church’s parking lots.
