5. St. Paul’s Chapel, Ringing the Bell of Hope
This will be the sixteenth year the Bell of Hope, gifted to New York City from London, will ring at St. Paul’s Chapel at exactly 8:46 AM, when Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower. The rector of Trinity Church, Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, will ring the bell in a specific pattern that is the traditional firefighters salute. The bell was created at Whitechapel Bell Foundry, the same firm where the Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell was cast.
There will also be a service at St. Paul’s Chapel at 3 PM which will include the Calling of the Names project – a reading of all the first responders, rescue and recovery workers who died from 9/11.
