Excerpt from thespec.com:

"Homeless Jesus," the bronze sculpture of Jesus wrapped in a blanket and sleeping on a park bench, has arrived in Hamilton (March 1, 2020).

The "Homeless Jesus" unveiling, and that of a statue of St. Patrick, both by sculptor Timothy Schmalz, symbolize St. Patrick's parish opening "a church without walls" to comfort and minister to the poor and downtrodden.

"Homeless Jesus" will be there, 24-7 to comfort the disenfranchised.

"Homeless Jesus" was given to the church by an anonymous donor who paid for it.

Schmalz, of Kitchener, said he created his first "Homeless Jesus" statue three years ago after walking around Toronto in November and stumbling across a homeless person completely covered in a blanket — to the point where he could not discern any features.

The image haunted him for two weeks in his studio, until he had to commit it to sculpture.

A number of these bronze statues are installed around the world and there are many more on order — costing about $33,000 each and taking two months to make.

"This 'Homeless Jesus' has touched people around the world … Jesus knows what it is to be poor, homeless, and to be broken."

He referred to Jesus as a refugee who fled to Egypt with his parents after he was born to escape the king, Herod, and also said Jesus knew what it was to be lost as a child, to be bullied, to be abandoned as he was by his disciples, and imprisoned before his death.

The statue "reminds us that Jesus Christ knows our suffering and it challenges us to reach out to those who suffer."

The church is more than 160 years old.

Excerpt from cbc.ca:

The church was built in 1878. Property records show the church congregation owned the land from 1875 until June 2013. That's when Louie Santaguida and his company Staton Renaissance, through a numbered company, bought it for $610,000.

After community protest, Santaguida demolished the church in 2014, saying it was crumbling anyway.

The church was already designated as heritage when that happened, says city planner Steve Robichaud. Santaguida got an alteration to that designation to demolish two-thirds of the church, but the original protection remains.
