Interfaith Memorial Service Set For Marine Park Sunday Afternoon

Interfaith Memorial Service Set For Marine Park Sunday Afternoon

In response to last week’s terrible World Trade Center disaster, three local elected officials are cosponsoring an interfaith memorial service in Marine Park on Sunday, September 23 at 2 P.M.

The park is bounded by Avenue U, Stuart Street, Fillmore Avenue and East 33rd Street.

"At a time when we are all in mourning, it is important that we provide solace to one another and remind ourselves that in the midst of our terrible grief, we will not be defeated by the horrific acts of cowards," said South Brooklyn representatives State Senator Carl Kruger, Assemblyman Frank Seddio and City Councilman Herb Berman.

The three invite the public to gather in a show of unity and patriotism "to mourn the thousands of husbands, wives, sons, daughters and many other loved ones and friends who perished in the despicable act of terrorism that shook our nation at its core."

Several members of the clergy from the surrounding communities have been invited to speak at the service, which will be held rain or shine. It is suggested that anyone planning to attend bring a lawn chair or blanket.
