School Community Remembers Victims and Heroes of 9/11
Posted on 09/11/2018
The Bishop Ahr High School community remembered the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001 with a memorial service, led by student leaders, choir members, and the Campus Ministry team, led by Sr. Cynthia Babyak and Fr. Keith Cervine. Student Council members and class officers took turns reading petitions over the public address system, asking for peace in the world, healing for the survivors, and eternal rest for the victims, in particular the three BGA/STA alumni who lost their lives on that day: Mark Carney '78, Patrick Dunn'80, and Colleen Meehan '93. A reflective rendition of "American the Beautiful," performed by the school chorus while a group of students placed flowers and candles by the World Trade Center beam, found in the garden in front of the school. A bell was rung for each of the four places that were attacked on September 11th.

Bishop Ahr High School will always remember the more than 3,000 people from over 50 nations who were killed in the terrorist attacks on the WTC in NYC, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania. Our community stands in witness that while the structure may have been destroyed, the spirit it represented can never be.
