Trinity Church Wall Street invites all who are seeking solace around the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks to visit St. Paul’s Chapel. In 2001, this "Chapel that Stood," 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.
Art and objects of remembrance from the events of September 11 are on display, and each year on September 11, we ring the Bell of Hope during a brief and moving worship service.
September 11, 2022, 8:40 am | Trinity's Rector, the Rev. Phillip A. Jackson, rang 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).
September 11, 2022, 2pm | Hosted by the 9/11 Community of New York City, this ceremony honors deceased 9/11 Rescue and Recovery Responders who came to help during the nine-month Rescue and Recovery Effort at the World Trade Center site following the attacks of September 11, 2001. By calling their names we invoke their memory and call out our gratitude for their service.
