Candlelight Vigil at the NH Statehouse
December 21, 2020 at 4:00 pm
This is a national day honoring those without homes who have passed away in our communities, traditionally held on the longest night of the year. For many it is the only service of remembrance they will have.
You are welcome to join us in person or virtually. If you choose to come in person, please know that we will have social distancing, mask wearing and no singing this year, to protect the health of all. Please consider joining us to pay respect to those valuable lives that we have lost in 2020.
We would appreciate it if you would register for the event, whether you will be attending in person or virtually, by clicking REGISTER HERE .
Registration gives us an idea of the number of participants. By registering for this event, you will receive the digital program and information about the live-stream, available on the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness’s Facebook Page on the night of the event.
There is no fee for any type of participation. The Vigil includes an invitation for participants who are attending in person to pick up a name and a candle from the table and to bring forward the candle when that person’s name is read.
If you are attending in person, and knew someone for whom you would especially like to bring forward the candle, you can also choose that option when registering for the event.
We hope to have your participation, whether in person or via live-stream.
