Statement from the Presiding Bishop on the World Trade Center and related tragedies

September 11, 2001

Thank you for the many expressions we are receiving of support and concern. We are safe and exceedingly mindful of the tragedy that is happening in another part of New York and also in Washington.

The Church Center community has gathered to support one another and to pray for all those who have died, or been injured during the events of this morning. In some way they touch us all, and we hold one another in prayer. We will offer our noonday Eucharist for all those who have died or been injured.

Frank Griswold
Presiding Bishop
