Homeless Memorial Services to be Held Thursday in Hyannis, Falmouth

The community gathers in Hyannis in 2016 for the annual Homeless Memorial Day Service.

HYANNIS – The community will gather Thursday night in Hyannis and Falmouth to honor the homeless men and women on Cape Cod who have died this year.

About two-dozen individuals on the Cape who were homeless or previously homeless have died in 2017.

Memorial Services will be held at the Federated Church in Hyannis at 5 p.m. and at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Falmouth at 6 p.m.

Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day services are held annually across the country on the longest night of the year.

The Hyannis service will begin outside of the church with brief opening remarks led by Dan McCullough of Homeless Outreach Team M25.

Attendees will then go inside for the formal service.

An informal gathering will be held with food and beverages in the church hall immediately following the service.

Rev. Louise Forrest of St. Barnabas, Rabbi Elias Lieberman of Falmouth Jewish Congregation and Rev. David Kohlmeier of the United Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth will lead the Falmouth service.

Several people will camp overnight on the lawn of St. Barnabas.

Donations of new socks, hats and gloves are also welcome.
