Hoboken 9/11 Interfaith Memorial Service
The 9/11 Interfaith Memorial Service will take place on Sunday, September 11, at 2pm at Pier A Park in Hoboken. (Note that this is a different time of day from when it has often taken place in the past.) The one-hour service will involve as broad a range of Hoboken's religious leaders as possible. Participants will offer prayers, scriptural readings, and musical selections, and participate in the reading of the names of the 56 residents of Hoboken who were killed on that day. The celebrations will be followed by the 9/11 Memorial Concert at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Hoboken.
