The Longest Night remembers 14 people who died homeless in 2017

On the longest night of the year, December 21, members of the St. Louis community gathered at Centenary United Methodist Church to remember 14 people who died homeless in St. Louis in 2017.

Reverend Kathleen Wilder spoke of the importance of the memorial service in her welcome. “Because we do this, their name is called, and their life is remembered and valued,” she said.
