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.
