Liturgical Resources for Marking the 20th Anniversary of 9/11
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001, we have gathered liturgical resources for those churches that may wish to mark the event in their liturgies during the weekend of September 10-12. We also commend the recently published Liturgy of Lament, Longing and Hope, an offering by the Swindell Committee of the Diocese of North Carolina. While not a commemoration service, some might find the liturgy's themes appropriate for the occasion and wish to join the livestream from Church of the Advocate, Chapel Hill, on the diocesan Facebook page at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 12.
Browse below for a list of resources appropriate for liturgical commemoration of 9/11:
- Interfaith Calling of the Names, hosted by the 9/11 Community of New York City and livestreamed by Trinity Wall Street
