Homeless people who died on San Francisco’s streets this year will be remembered with a candlelight vigil at 5:30 p.m. Monday, December 21 at City Hall.

San Francisco Interfaith Council and the San Francisco Night Ministry co-sponsor the annual memorial, held on National Homeless Memorial Day, “to bring people of all faiths together to commemorate the deaths of our homeless neighbors,” organizers said in a notice about the event. “This moving memorial will connect you to the city in a deep and thoughtful way. Please join us to remember those in our community who are no longer with us.”

The vigil will include the reading of names of those who have died. The number of people who have died this year on San Francisco’s streets wasn’t available.

People are asked to bring candles and gather on the steps of City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, on the Polk Street side.
