IN REMEMBRANCE OF  Description: C:\Users\aanderson.STMARY\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0EY5SP4R\MP900384725[1].jpg

As we take time to reflect on the 11th Anniversary of a day none of us will ever forget, let us come together to grieve, to remember, to express our gratitude to those who demonstrated what it is to be a hero, and to pledge ourselves to live in honor of their bravery. Let us pray for all those who lost someone on that day and ask God to especially be present with all those who are still suffering and struggling to overcome their grief. We ask God to send his spirit of peace to rest upon our nation, and the world. We pray for peace of mind and spirit, and we pray for peace among nations, cultures, and religions.

Come Holy Spirit fill our hearts with your peace. Amen.
