9/11 Prayer Service
During Immaculata University’s annual September 11th Prayer Service on Wednesday, September 11 at 9:00 a.m., five veterans from the Norristown Catholic Veteran’s Post 1182 presented an American flag to the University. A bugler performed while the new flag was raised.
“To mark the 12th anniversary of 9/11, Immaculata University will recognize, remember and revere the full impact of that day with our students and war veterans. By gathering in prayer at the flagpole and in the shadow of our great dome and patroness, Mary, Immaculata University will bring honor to the sacrifice made by so many and call to mind for a new generation of students that freedom is not free. It is a gift that comes at a great cost,” commented Father Christopher Rogers, chaplain and director of Campus Ministry.
Colonel John Church, assistant professor of English/Communication at Immaculata, helped coordinate the donation of the new flag from the members of the Norristown Catholic War Veteran’s Post. The Post is a social organization for Catholic military veterans. It was formed in promotion of veterans’ welfare and health.
Immaculata University is a comprehensive, Catholic, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
