Candlelight Vigil for Homeless Persons Memorial Day & Stone Soup Night 2019

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.

A candlelight vigil is offered for National Homeless Memorial Day in downtown Peterborough on Saturday, 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.

Stone Soup
Please join us for some soup at PUMC immediately following the vigil.
Stone Soup 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.
