Episcopal Church Encourages Services in Honor of 9/11 Anniversary

The Executive Council of the Episcopal Church encouraged services on the weekend of September 10-11, 2011 in honor of the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the United States. 


The council issued a letter that read, "the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church, meeting in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, from June 15-17, 2011, invites Episcopal communities of all kinds to open the doors of their institutions the weekend of September 10 and 11, 2011 to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the attacks with acts of prayer and remembrance, service, creativity, inter-faith cooperation, education, community building, and fellowship, offering our institutions as active, accessible sites of healing for our local communities."


The Diocese of Texas plans to work with Compassionate Houston on a "Compassionate Weekend of Service" that will highlight Houston as a city of service.
