9/11 Memorial Liturgy
Remembrance, Prayer and Reflection
10 years later, we are still living in a world trying to make sense of the events of September 11, 2001. The attacks that took place on that day were not simply an unspeakable tragedy: they also marked the beginning of a new age, a new era, a new way of engaging the world around us. As with only a handful of other such iconic moments, everything changed-even the role of faith in our lives and communities-as a result of that day.
Please join others in observing and commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11.

We will remember those who died, and raise up to God our hopes for a world transformed by God's presence and healing love.
