9/11 Remembrance Service at St. Paul's
December 16, 2006
This year’s service will feature musical selections from the Newington High School Chamber Choir. These outstanding young musicians will perform holiday music in festive Victorian costume (see photo). The service will also feature a candle-lighting service accompanied by flutist Ulla Suokko, as well as prayers of peace and remembrance. All those in attendance will have the opportunity to write messages to loved ones that will be permanently preserved in the 9/11 Living Memorial.
A brief reception will follow the service. Family
members will then have the opportunity to process to the Ground Zero viewing area for a brief prayer.
Unfortunately, because of construction, the WTC site is closed to visitors. Please bring an ornament to decorate the WTC holiday tree (last year's tree shown at right) if you wish.
