Area Faith Groups Unite to Share Hope at 9/11 Memorial Service

Bangor -

BANGOR, Maine — The public is invited to attend a gathering of remembrance and hope at a 9/11 memorial service at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the John Bapst Memorial High School.  Organized by a spectrum of Bangor-area Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders, the event will be an opportunity to reflect on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania, but also to express the shared hope that people of faith can bring even in the face of such tragedies.
African-American Jewish gospel singer Joshua Nelson will perform during the program (www.joshuanelson.com). There will also be times of reflection and remembrance led by local religious leaders.

For more information, call Rev. Salinas of First Baptist Church at 945-9694.
