Trinity Community to Gather in Observance of the 10th Anniversary of September 11 on Monday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 13
Members of the Trinity community — students, faculty and staff — are invited to gather together for prayer services, interfaith reflections, and engaging discussions in observance of the 10th anniversary of September 11.
Monday, September 12
Prayer Services: On Monday, September 12, at 11:45 am and 6:00 pm, students, faculty and staff are invited to gather in the Well in Main Hall for prayer services in observance of the 10th anniversary of September 11. The Trinity community will gather to remember; to pray for those who died and for those who saved others; to consider new ways of being citizens of the world that embrace respect for differences, compassionate forgiveness and cooperation for the common good; and to hope for healing and reconciliation for our country and all countries of the world. This September 11 observance was planned by Campus Ministry and several student leaders: Katie Breslin, Anastasia Broadus, Morgan Carrillo, Sardai Payne and Lorena Rodriquez.
Interfaith Reflection: Also on Monday, September 12, Trinity’s School of Professional Studies will convene an interactive, interfaith discussion and reflection with faculty, students and staff. “What we have learned about our… selves, religion, and culture since September 11” will be held from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm in Main 240. “Many members of the Trinity community have personal memories of September 11,” said Telaekah Brooks, dean of the School of Professional Studies, “from where you were when the towers were attacked to who you may know who was personally affected. We are going to take time to recognize and remember the sacrifices of many on the 10th anniversary of September 11. We will also observe a prayer and a moment of silence at 6:00 pm in the Well of Main Hall.”
Tuesday, September 13
Engaging Discussion: In honor of Constitution Day and in recognition of the 10th anniversary of September 11, Trinity’s School of Professional Studies will host a talk and lively discussion that explores the balance between securing our nation and having individual liberty and freedoms. Tom Mostowy, assistant professor of criminal justice, will lead the talk at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, September 13, in Main 240. All students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
