Interfaith Gathering on Promenade to Mark 20th Anniversary of 9/11

This coming Saturday, September 11, is the twentieth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the hijacked plane that was brought down in Pennsylvania.  Starting at 7:15 pm there will be a candlelight vigil on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade near the Montague Street entrance, presented by the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith Clergy Association. Your correspondent attended the ceremony ten years ago, at which representatives of several faiths, including Christian, Jewish, and Muslim, read pertinent passages from their sacred texts (see videos in the linked post).

During the day volunteers will be at tables along the promenade “offering supplies (pens, card stock paper, tie ribbons) for people to leave a written prayer or message tied to the fence.”
