Our annual Christmas Dinner is a celebration of the Advent season and the culmination of another year spent sharing life together with men and women experiencing homelessness in Atlanta. Since 2001, we have welcomed all at a candlelit feast complete with real plates, tablecloths, caroling, and loads of Christmas cheer.
16th Annual Christmas Dinner
The 16th Annual Lazarus Christmas Dinner was a truly great event! We celebrated the coming Christmas season and the culmination of another year spent developing kinship with our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness. We had perfect weather, beautiful decorations, plenty of delicious food to go around, and loads of Christmas cheer.
The focus is to celebrate Christmas with our friends living on the street and staying in nearby shelters. We do this sitting side-by-side and feasting together. We intentionally hold the dinner outside in the Urban Garden at Atlanta Mission for the comfort of the chronically homeless that may feel uncomfortable coming indoors.
