Vigil Prayer Service of Remembrance for 9/11
“Honor, Hope, Healing”
These are the simple words that describe the journey of America’s Gold Star Families – our friends and neighbors who live, every day, with the cherished memory of a loved one who served in our military and who never came home. Take a short walk from the beautiful shrine and you will find the Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial, a sacred place that honors the sons and daughters, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers who, since September 11th 2001, who have given their lives in service to our country.
We have gathered together in prayer at our Shrine to honor those lost. We have carried candles and walked in procession down Seaport Blvd. to the Fallen Heroes Memorial as an expression of our solidarity with them and our gratitude for their sacrifice. This year, more than ever, let us stand with them and keep our promise to never forget. And may our presence be our gift of hope and healing.
