Pan Am 103 Remembrance Service to Be Held Dec. 21
The dean and chaplains of Hendricks Chapel will conduct a remembrance service on Saturday, Dec. 21, at 2:03 p.m. in the chapel’s Noble Room to honor the 270 people who died aboard Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on the same date 31 years ago.
Thirty-five students studying through Syracuse University’s Division of International Programs Abroad (Syracuse Abroad) were lost in the tragedy.
The service will include prayers, reflections and a reading of the names of the 35 Syracuse University students who were lost aboard the flight. Following the service, those in attendance will proceed to the Wall of Remembrance, located in front of the Hall of Languages, where a brief memorial statement will be offered and the Crouse Chimes will sound 35 times.
The Chaplains’ Council of Hendricks Chapel holds the memorial service each Dec. 21 at 2:03 p.m., the exact time and date of the bombing of Flight 103 in 1988.
A service at the Pan Am 103 memorial cairn at Arlington National Cemetery, organized by the Victims of Pan Am Flight 103 families group, will take place simultaneously. Representatives from Syracuse University and members of the 2019-20 Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholar cohorts will be in attendance.
