A Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Strangers
Remembering 9/11 – An Interfaith Memorial Service

“Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the brotherhood of strangers.” – Victor Hugo

In recognition of the continued work that needs to be done to foster improved relationships between our region’s diverse religious communities, Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT) in collaboration with The City of Austin, The Catholic Diocese of Austin, Muslims for Peace and Unity, The Institute for Interfaith Dialogue, Congregation Beth Israel, First Baptist Church and other iACT member congregations will be holding a city-wide Memorial Service commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States. 

The Interfaith Memorial Service will take place on Sunday, September the 11th, from 4:00 PM – 5:15 PM at First Baptist Church in downtown Austin – 901 Trinity Street.

The service will focus on the sacrifice of those who rushed to save strangers on 9/11 and the need to strengthen the bonds of our community today.
