The St. Bonaventure University community will hold a prayer service to honor those killed Sept. 11, 2001.
The service begins at 12:50 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, and will be held at the university’s 9/11 Memorial, which is located adjacent to St. Joseph’s Oratory just south of Café La Verna. The memorial was moved from its original site next to Plassmann Hall due to construction of the university’s new business center.
Tuesday’s program is open to the public; visitor parking is available nearby at the Magnano Centre dining complex.
The prayer service will be led by Fr. Francis Di Spigno, O.F.M., executive director of University Ministries. Also participating will be the ROTC Color Guard, as well as the men’s rugby team, who will distribute prayer cards.
Rob Perazza, who played rugby for St. Bonaventure, was one of three St. Bonaventure alumni killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The others are Amy Doherty and Father Mychal Judge, known as "The Saint of 9/11."
