9/11 Anniversary Prayer Service, Masses
The Division of Mission and Ministry invites the University community to remember the men and women who died during attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon Sept. 11, 2001, to honor the many acts of selflessness displayed by rescue workers, and to pray for peace.
Friday, Sept. 9
An interfaith prayer service will be held at 10:03 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9, in two locations - at the peace pole located across from Des Peres Hall and the peace pole on the green space between Doisy College of Health Sciences and the School of Nursing.
The time of 10:03 was chosen because this was the time that the fourth plane crashed. The prayer service will last about 10 minutes.
Sunday, September 11
Remembrances of those lost on Sept. 11 also will be a part of three Masses on the SLU campus. The official prayers at the masses will come from the Church's "Mass for Justice and Peace."
10:30 a.m. Mass: Saint Louis University Hospital Chapel
4:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Mass: St. Francis Xavier Church
