To mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11, you are invited to "Massachusetts Remembers," a large public gathering, including prayers, poems and performances by the Boston Pops Brass and Boston Children's Chorus, Sunday September 11, 2011- 3pm at the Hatch Shell.
 
The Archdiocese of Boston will join with houses of worship and religious groups to bring an important component to this shared public day of remembrance.  Delegations from houses of worship and religious groups are invited to gather at 2:30pm on the Esplanade so that we can to sit together at a space reserved for us. You are invited to bring a banner identifying your house of worship. "Massachusetts Remembers" will provide an opportunity not only to look back but also to look forward, united by our shared values of security, liberty and justice for all.
 
A service pavilion will feature local non-profits, charitable organizations lead by 9/11 family members and ways to rededicate ourselves to retelling our shared American story of service and sacrifice, healing and wholeness.
