Observance of the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001

Trinity Church Wall Street invited all who are seeking solace around the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks to join us for A Time and Space for Remembrance and Healing from Friday evening, Sep. 10, to Sunday evening, Sep. 12. In 2001, St. Paul’s Chapel, part of Trinity Church Wall Street, served as a relief mission for recovery workers at Ground Zero for nearly a year after the buildings fell.

Following a service at Trinity Church on Friday, Sep. 10 at 8pm, St. Paul’s Chapel opened to all those who were seeking a place to pray, reflect, mourn, or simply sit with their memories. Clergy from the Episcopal Diocese of New York offered support and prayers, and from 7am-7pm on Saturday, brief musical interludes and readings were offered on the hour.

Art and objects of remembrance from the events of September 11 were available at St. Paul’s Chapel, along with interactive digital exhibits here. Watch videos, listen to recollections from our community, and contribute reflections of your own. On Sunday, Sep. 12, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached at our 11:15am Holy Eucharist at Trinity Church. At 8pm on Sunday, St. Paul’s Chapel was closed, and we offered a Compline service at Trinity Church.
