The St. Petersburg community will unite at Celebrate Outreach’s sixteenth annual
Homeless Memorial Service to honor and remember those who died in Pinellas
County over the last year while experiencing homelessness.
The powerful one-hour interfaith service, which is open to all, will feature hymns
and gospel music, a candle lighting and reading of the deceased’s names, and
a proclamation from the City of St Petersburg. The service will end with a
procession to Mirror Lake and “Amazing Grace” played on a bagpipe.
The Unitarian Universalist Church’s Friday night supper will follow the service.
Sponsored by Celebrate Outreach, a coalition of St. Petersburg-area faith groups dedicated to
preventing and ending homelessness, in cooperation with Pinellas County Homeless Leadership
Board. The service is part of the observance of National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day.
