Sept. 11 ceremonies

The annual Sept. 11 ceremony will be held at the 9/11 Memorial in remembrance of the 2001 terrorist attacks, with four moments of silence observing the times when each plane hit and each tower fell, beginning at 8:46 am.

Family members have been invited to attend.

St. Paul’s Chapel will ring the morning bell services followed by their traditional Prayers for Peace and the ringing of the Bell of Hope.

The massive pillars of light at West and Morris Sts., made of 44 7,000 watt bulbs, will send a glowing image of the Twin Towers into the N.Y.C. skyline beginning at sunset on Sept. 11 and will remain until the sun rises the next day.
