Remember 9/11 with Prayer: Come to Memorial Mass

September 8, 2017

September 11, 2017 The St. John’s University community will gather together to mark the 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York City and Washington, DC, with a Mass of Remembrance at the Queens and Staten Island campuses.

You are invited to join us for Mass at these times and locations on Monday, September 11:

  • Queens Campus
    8 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.
    St. Thomas More Church
  • Staten Island Campus
    12:15 p.m.
    St. Vincent de Paul Chapel

Let us remember together those who lost their lives that day, as the author of the following prayer encourages us:

“May all of us remember with love and compassion this day.
May we grieve with those who still mourn,
And share memories with those who cannot forget.
May we draw strength from those who bravely responded,
And gave their lives to save others.
May we stand with strangers who became neighbors that day,
And remember their generosity and hospitality.
Above all God may we remember your faithfulness,
And learn to trust in your unfailing love.”
