PALOS HILLS, IL [MW Diocese Communications] -- The annual "Patriots' Day" tribute to those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks will be held at Saint Luke the Evangelist Church here on September 11, 2012.
"We will be displaying the artifacts we have acquired from the 9/11 tragedies, which include a portion of an I-beam from the World Trade Center and rubble from the Pentagon," said Father Andrew Harrison, rector.  "Our bell tower was dedicated to those who lost their lives in the attacks."
The bells will be rung on the hour from the time of the first 9/11 incident through the end of the memorial.
The Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11.  The church will remain open throughout the day.  At 7:00 p.m., a memorial program will begin.  Father Alexander F. C.
