2. St. Paul’s Chapel
St. Paul’s Chapel stands directly across the street from the site of The World Trade Center. As the towers collapsed on that tragic day sixteen years ago just across the street, no harm was done to St. Paul’s. The chapel became known as “The Little Chapel that Stood” and became a relief ministry in the months that followed for relief and rescue workers to rest and pray.
St. Paul’s will ring the Bell of Hope at exactly 8:46 AM., the time the plane crashed into the North Tower, in the pattern of “four fives.” Later in the evening, the second annual Calling of the Names Ceremony will be held to remember the 9/11 responders, rescue and recovery workers, and volunteers who sacrificed their well-being and have since passed away.
