9/11: The Catholic Church Remembers


 
911. For years, those numbers simply meant a call for help.

Now they also remind us of September 11, 2001, the date of the worst terrorist attack on the United States of America and one of the deadliest days ever on American soil.

To mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have gathered some reflections and remembrances from clergy who ministered to victims and their families, and others who were impacted by the tragedy.

They are also providing liturgical resources for parish and diocesan observances and links to bishops' statements and other materials for reading and reflection.
