On Monday, Sept. 11, Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel will mark the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States.
Nearly 3,000 people died in attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Northern Virginia, and the crash of United Flight 93 in a field in Pennsylvania.
On Monday, Hendricks Chapel will be open and available for quiet reflection from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A lit candle will be placed at the head of the aisle. Pictures taken around campus on Sept. 11, 2001, by University photographer Steve Sartori, depicting the outpouring of sympathy and support on the campus that day, will line the chapel’s stage.
The Sheets of Expression, on which members of the University community shared their thoughts in the days following Sept. 11, will hang from the chapel’s balconies.
At noon, chaplains representing the Muslim, Jewish and Christian faith traditions will offer readings from the Koran, Torah and Christian scriptures, and give brief statements of reflection. The Rev. Thomas V. Wolfe, dean of Hendricks Chapel, will offer a welcome and concluding remarks.
