The Homeless Persons' Memorial Vigil is hosted this year by St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1430 Park Avenue in Plainfield, NJ on December 20, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.  The Vigil will take place the night before December 21 is the longest night of the year and is a time to remember all people experiencing homelessness who died in the past year due to their lack of shelter or care.  

“More often or not, most of us have the opportunity to say good-bye to friends and family on or after our passing and have closure,” said Pastor Angelo Wildgoose of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Plainfield.  “The annual Homeless Vigil offers the opportunity to remember those who pass on the streets.  St. Mark’s Parish embraces the opportunity to have a hand in helping God’s children in any way we can.”
