Interfaith Homeless Memorial Service

Thursday, December 5, 2019 7 Kislev 5780

6:00 PM - 8:00 PMSt. Andrew’s Episcopal Church (1819 Heights Blvd.)

The community is invited to take part in the third annual Interfaith Memorial Service for the Homeless at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, following Congregation Emanu El in 2018 and the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in 2017.

This year’s memorial service is one of nearly 100 events being held across the country for which advocacy groups come together to honor the lives of the homeless people who have died in the last year. Reverend Jimmy Grace will preside over the service, which will include leaders from multiple faith communities including Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Protestant, Catholic, and Judaism. Each of these clergy members will share a brief reflection on their faith traditions’ teaching on the sanctity of human life. The names of those who passed over the last year will also be read aloud.

A vegetarian meal will be served at the conclusion of the service. This year’s memorial service is sponsored by the Ignatian Spirituality Project, the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Office of Ecumenical & Interreligious Affairs, St. Andrews Episcopal Church and Congregation Emanu El.

For more information, please email media@rememberthehomeless.org. The Emanu El contact is Jason Plotkin, who can be reached at jasonp@emanuelhouston.org or 713.535.6414.
