Join Celebrate Outreach for the 28th annual “Still No Room in the Inn,” Christmas caroling for people experiencing homelessness. Carolers will gather at the Unitarian Universalist Church and carol at homeless shelters and other spots in downtown St. Petersburg. The caroling will end at 9:00 PM with cookies and hot chocolate at the manger scene near the corner of 2nd Avenue and Bayshore Drive NE on the St. Petersburg waterfront. Rides back to cars parked at the church will be provided. The caroling is sponsored by Celebrate Outreach, a coalition of faith-based groups working to end homelessness in St. Petersburg (http://www.celebrateoutreach.org/).
“Still No Room in the Inn” takes its name from the Christmas story. Jesus of Nazareth was born as a homeless refugee and was placed in an animal’s feeding trough because there was “no room in the inn” for him and his family. The caroling is a reminder that two thousand years after the first Christmas there is “still no room in the inn” for many people in St. Petersburg.
People of all ages, professions, economic conditions, and beliefs carol together, united by their support of decent housing for all. For more information: (727) 894-2832 or firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
