The Chapel’s Renowned Carillion Bell Tower Will Toll Its Bourdon Bell For Two Minutes At The Precise Times Each Plane Struck The Twin Towers, The Pentagon, When Flight 93 Crashed And When The North And South Towers Collapsed
The Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge National Historical Park has announced that it will be honoring the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with a solemn remembrance service and tribute to Flight 93 Hero Louis J. Nacke II, who is laid to rest in the Chapel’s cemetery, on Saturday, September 11 at 9:30 AM.
Throughout the morning service, the Chapel’s renowned Carillon, located in the Chapel’s bell tower, will toll its bourdon bell for two minutes at the precise times each plane struck the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, when Flight 93 fatally crashed and when the North and South Towers collapsed.
Following the service, Father Tommy Thompson, rector of the Washington Memorial Chapel, will lead a procession to the grave of Louis J. Nacke II, one of the heroes of Flight 93, who is buried in the Chapel’s cemetery. Prayers will be said for the victims who died in the attacks, those who lost their lives in the last twenty years in the ongoing conflict and for the civilians and service members who died most recently in Afghanistan.
The Chapel invites community members to come pray for those that lost their lives on that tragic day, and in the years following, and welcomes anyone from any faith. Firefighters, police and first-responders are encouraged to join the commemoration.
