Catholic University to Host 9/11 Mass of Remembrance


Sunday, Sept. 11, 9 p.m.

WHERE: The Catholic University of America
Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, Great Room
620 Michigan Ave., N.E.
Washington, D.C.

On the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, The Catholic University of America will commemorate victims in a special Sunday Mass.

The evening Mass — with readings for the day — satisfies the Sunday obligation.

Rev. Jude DeAngelo, O.F.M. Conv., Catholic University’s chaplain and director of Campus Ministry, will be the main celebrant. He will address the 9/11 tragedy in his homily.

At the Offertory, members of the University’s College Republicans and College Democrats will serve as gift bearers, presenting the bread and wine to be consecrated as well as a list of the victims who died on 9/11 at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field near Shanksville, Pa.

After Communion, a video will be presented showing the 9/11 related events and photos from Catholic University’s remembrance activities across the past 10 years.

At the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, a banner listing the victims will be exhibited. And beginning Sept. 7, there will be three large paper displays for members of the University community to inscribe memories and messages. The displays will be later delivered to the memorials at the three crash sites.
