Belmont to honor 9/11 victims in remembrance service

 Belmont University will be holding a Service of Remembrance, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11, in honor of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, in New York, the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and United Airlines Flight 93, and the 2,977 lives that were lost during the attacks.

The brief service around the Belltower will include scripture readings and prayer. In addition, the Bell Tower carillon bells will sound 2,977 times in honor of every life lost during the attacks.

The service will last approximately 10 minutes, while the tolling bells are expected to take 90 minutes. A wreath will also be placed at the Memorial Fountain on Belmont Boulevard that was built after 9/11.

Following the service, the prayer chapel in the Belltower and University Ministries in Gabhart Student Center will be open until 5 p.m. for additional prayer.

All faculty, students and members of the Nashville community are invited to attend.
