Last Saturday’s Interfaith Remembrance service at St. Paul’s Chapel was an extraordinary event. The chapel was filled with members of the 9/11 community as we took time to remember those who perished and give thanks for those who have supported us over the past 5 years.

All of us at VOICES are looking forward to tomorrow’s Interfaith Remembrance Service at St. Paul’s Chapel as we remember and reflect during the holiday season. Last year’s event was very special and, again, acclaimed flutist, Ulla Suokko will fill the air with her beautiful music.

VOICES will host an Interfaith Remembrance Service at St. Paul’s Chapel in NYC next Saturday, December 16th. As those who attended last year’s service can attest, the service was a wonderful, heartwarming ceremony filled with music and prayer.
