Interfaith Prayer Vigil

8:30 AM

September 11, 2011

Exactly one decade later, the tragedy of September 11, 2001, was commemorated beginning with an Interfaith Vigil at 8:30 am. Participants of diverse faiths prayed together, and tolling of the Bourdon bell—the largest bell in the Cathedral's central tower—marked the moments when airplanes struck the north and south towers of the World Trade Center, hit the Pentagon, and crashed in Pennsylvania.

Participants included Cathedral Dean Samuel T. Lloyd III; Bishop of Washington John Bryson Chane; Rabbi Bruce Lustig, Washington Hebrew Congregation; Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche of Tibet, Buddhist nun and incarnate lama; Dr. D.C. Rao, a representative of the Hindu and Jain faiths on the Board of Directors of the InterFaith Conference; Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America; and musician Humayun Khan.
