Unitarian Universalist Church 100 Mirror Lake Drive, St. Petersburg

 

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 Sunset Supper will follow the service.
