The Rev. Duerr will also speak about being present the evening of the attack and helping at the site of the World Trade Center Towers in New York City. Duerr said, “The scene was unbelievable. Just three nights earlier I dined with a friend in one of the tower’s restaurants. Outside afterwards we marveled at such structural magnificence: two of the world’s tallest buildings! On the evening of 9/11, I walked in the same area, but now amidst debris and white ash.”
The concert is FREE. Due to COVID protocols, those attending are requested to register by September 10 by calling the cathedral office at 716-855-0900. You may also register at the door on the day of the concert. Masking may be required.
