Bell of Hope: Prayers for Peace and Reconciliation

Observance of the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001


The Rev. Phillip A. Jackson, Priest-in-charge of Trinity Church Wall Street, will ring the Bell of Hope in St. Paul’s Churchyard in a pattern of “four fives” (five strikes, repeated four times), the traditional firefighters’ salute to the fallen. Following prayers, the bell will be rung precisely at 8:46am, the time when the first plane crashed into 1 World Trade Center (North Tower). The bell, a gift from London to New York City a year after the attacks, is rung on September 11 anniversaries and to remember victims of terrorism and mass shootings. Join us for this brief and memorable service by tuning in here on our website or on Facebook Live during the event. Masks and social distancing will be required and capacity limits observed.
