As the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks quickly approaches, most of us are thinking about how we will mark the tragic day. The official dedication of the 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan is set for Sunday, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg made it known a few days ago that religious leaders and first responders will have no part in the ceremony.
But, a group of clergy is not taking the ban lying down. Leaders are planning to gather in front of Saint Paul’s Chapel in lower Manhattan at 10 am on September 10th – Saturday – and walk to Ground Zero for prayer and reflection.
One of the organizers of that service is Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition. He spoke by phone with our Matt McClure.
