On Sunday, November 4 at 4 p.m. our annual city-wide interfaith Service of Light & Remembrance will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas located at 1835 Young Street (free parking available).
This service, hosted by Faith Forward Dallas, is held to remember our neighbors who have died homeless this past year in Dallas County. Each year, indigent citizens of our city pass away without anyone to honor their lives. Faith leaders from various traditions will unite to honor them and pray for their eternal rest. The public is invited to attend the service where over 200 names of our homeless brothers and sisters will be read aloud and recognized.
Over the past years, numerous organizations in Dallas, including The Stewpot of First Presbyterian Church, have worked tirelessly to combat homelessness. While much progress has been made, several hundred people die on the streets each year.
First Presbyterian Church hopes that the Service of Light & Remembrance will highlight the need for a united effort to expand effective solutions and build a true and just society for all people.
