Memorial Service For the Homeless
Location: St. Benedict the Moor Parish, 924 W. State Street, Milwaukee, WI 53233
Join us on Thursday, May 2, 3 PM, for a Memorial Service to remember the homeless individuals who have died in the last year. Ascension Columbia St. Mary's St. Ben’s Clinic partners with St. Benedict the Moor Parish in honoring these individuals.
Being homeless often means being invisible. St. Ben's Clinic and the other partnering organizations will recognize that these individuals were valued. These individuals were someone’s children; someone’s brother or sister. We will all recognize that these individuals were indeed our brothers and sisters.
Each of the individuals will have their name read aloud and a candle lit in their memory. Additional partners for the memorial service include Capuchin Community Services, Salvation Army, Community Advocates, The Guest House, Heartland Housing Alliance, Outreach Community Health Center, and the homeless community.
