Remembering 9/11 in a spirit of quiet reverence

The Downtown Covenant Council of Churches of Easton will mark the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Trinity will be open for prayer from 8:30 am until Noon. In the city, church bells will toll to mark the moments of the terrorist attacks (8:46, 9:02, 9:37, 10:03). At noon in the circle of the downtown area, a gathering for prayer will be led by the area clergy.

In the evening, a time of prayer and reflection will begin at 7:00 PM at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 330 Ferry Street. The speaker for the reflection time is Major Carl Schoch, the former Divisional Commander of the Greater New York Area and Coordinator of the Salvation Army’s emergency response at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001. He will speak to those gathered and reflect on “I Saw God at Ground Zero”. The evening service is open to the public and free. Speak to Father Gerns, if you have any questions.
