Remembering those Lost

The second weekend of September my 52 Masses adventure took me to Western New York, where I attended Mass at St. Joseph University Parish, on the campus of the University of Buffalo. It was a beautiful old parish, right there on Main Street in the Queen City of the Lakes (a name I didn’t know until watching the news in the rectory with Father Jack).

It was a special weekend at the parish there (and elsewhere), as the parishioners of St. Joseph honored the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. In addition to a few photos from the church, I’m linking to a video of a bagpiper brought in to commemorate the event.

The gentleman led the procession in with Amazing Grace, then led it out with this powerful performance of Highland Cathedral. It was a fitting tribute, and we should all continue to pray for those lost in that senseless attack.
