Shut Out of 9/11, Clergy to Hold Prayer Service at Ground Zero on 9/10
WASHINGTON — Faith leaders and clergy plan public prayer service at Ground Zero for Saturday, September 10.
Participants in the prayer service will meet in front of St. Paul’s Chapel, 209 Broadway, at 10:00 a.m. and walk over to Ground Zero.
The group feels it is imperative to have a public prayer witness at Ground Zero seeking God during the 9/11 Memorial Weekend.
The organizers of the prayer service are deeply troubled that Mayor Bloomberg has banned all prayer, public expressions of faith and clergy at the Sunday 9/11 Memorial Service.
One of the leaders of the prayer service, Rev. Patrick Mahoney, has contacted New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly through his attorney to help facilitate the permit process.
