SACRED HEART SACRED STEEL BEAMS

FROM 9/11 MEMORIAL



 

Hours:
The Memorial Chapel is opened Monday through Friday from11:00am to 12:00pm and 12:45pm to 1:00pm and before and after each weekend Mass.

History of the Memorial Bell Tower: 
In early 2001 one of two bells that served the Sacred Heart

Community was found. The Bell is over 100 years old

and honors Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de

Sagrado Corazon.

The parishioners of Sacred Heart committed to

building a bell tower to house the newly found bell.

When the terrorist attacks of September11, 2001

occurred, leaders in the community requested that

Archbishop Michael Sheehan, Congresswoman Heather

Wilson and others ask the City of New York for two

steal beams from the World Trade Center.  The sacred

steel beams serve as a quiet reminder of the death and

destruction that occurred on September 11, 2001, but

they also remind us that out of the dust and ashes we

experience a sense of rebirth in determination and faith.
