The Loretto Community, the Curran Center at Fordham University, and Westchester Interfaith Connection will be hosting a commemoration of September 11th, 2001 and UN International Peace Day next Sunday. They will be showing the film 'In Our Son's Name' about the transformation that Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez experienced after their son Greg died in the World Trade Center.
This moving portrait of a positive response to violence challenges conventional concepts of healing and justice. Afterward Phyllis and Orlando will lead a discussion. The event starts at 2pm on Sunday, September 13th, in Casserly Hall, St Joseph's Greenwich Village Church, Washington Place and Sixth Avenue. Suggested donation: $5-$10, more if you have it, less if you don't.
"War destroys. And we must cry out for peace. Peace sometimes gives the idea of stillness, but it is never stillness. It is always an active peace. I think that everyone must be committed in the matter of peace, to do everything that they can, what I can do from here. Peace is the language we must speak." Pope Francis
