Longest Night Memorial Service at The Bridge

Recognizes The Homeless Who Have Passed

November 1, 2011 | 2 min reading time
For those who are now homeless, life brings many challenges and fears. Will I be able to eat today? Will I sleep inside tonight? Will I ever have a home of my own? Does anybody care?

Members of the Continuum of Care, a network of agencies that provides services for St. Louis' sojourners, believe that everyone should be remembered; in life and in death. Each year, we recognize those who have passed in a Longest Night Memorial Service at Centenary United Methodist Church, located downtown at 16th and Olive. You are welcome to join us in the sanctuary at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 21, for this year's memorial. During the service, the names of those who have died will be read, and candles will be lit in their honor. A complimentary dinner for all will follow in the downstairs dining room.

If you have questions, please contact Debra at or by calling The Bridge at (314) 421-3136. To learn more about The Bridge, see its website,
