The Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life at Brown University together with Rhode Island Voices of Faith, a multifaith collaboration of clergy sponsored the Rhode Island State Council of Churches will join with civic and community leaders, to host two events on Sunday, September 11, in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of 9/11. All are warmly invited.
At 2 p.m., the public is invited to take part in the ancient practice of walking a spiritual labyrinth that will be inscribed on the Main Green. Additional peace-building and wellness activities will also be available.
At 4 p.m., the community will gather for an outdoor multi-faith service: “Remembering 9.11 Together: A Rite of Remembrance,” held on the lawn of Manning Chapel, located just inside the Van Wickle Gates at the intersection of Prospect and College Streets. Beginning with the tolling of the University’s bells, the service will include musical offerings and readings led by both the Chaplains of the University and a statewide multi-faith delegation of clergy. Closing remarks will be given by Brown University President Ruth J. Simmons.
