11sep8:00 am- 5:00 pmA Day of Remembrance – 15 Years Since 9/118:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Details

Most of us remember where we were the day the worst terrorist attack on our nation’s soil took place. On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked planes and wreaked destruction, havoc and horror on and in the lives of thousands of American citizens in New York City, Pennsylvania and at the heart of our nation’s defense system – the Pentagon in northern Virginia. Fifteen years later, we will offer a day of remembrance at St. Martin’s to give all those who attend and participate an opportunity to remember, reflect and pray. We invite our members and visitors from the greater Houston area and beyond to join us. There will be the solemn tolling of our bells throughout the day. Please join us for this important day in the life of our Parish, our city, our nation – our world.
