Commemorating 9/11

On Saturday, September 11, our nation and the world will mark the passage of two decades since the day that changed our lives forever. The Cathedral of Saint Peter will commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks with a memorial bell toll.

The Cathedral is once again open for private prayer and visitation. We are excited to welcome you back and encourage you to spend time in quiet contemplation while surrounded by over one hundred and fifty years of ecclesiastical history.
