Dec 19, 2020

NORWICH — A vigil to remember those in the local homeless community who
have died this year will be held Monday.

The annual Homeless Persons Memorial Candlelight Vigil will take place
outside of the St. Vincent de Paul Place.

“There are people living on the fringe that need to be addressed, and until
that happens, and homelessness continues, we’ll continue the Homeless
Person’s Memorial.” said Judi Gaudet, systems of care director for
Generations Family Health, which provides healthcare services to the
homeless.

Gaudete said some of the most common issues homeless people face,
include otherwise easily preventable and treatable illnesses, exposure and
acts of violence.

“People are human by nature, and only homeless by chance,” Gaudet said.

The memorial will feature a reading of names of the local homeless that
have died this year. The St. Bernard School Choir will perform, and a soup
dinner will be served. People who want to attend are asked to donate
non-perishables or gloves for the St. Vincent de Paul Place.
