National Cathedral Scales Back 9/11 Services

Ad Feedback

The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., is scaling back plans to commemorate the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The famous church will mark the day with prayers during regularly scheduled services rather than hold a larger event.

In past years, the cathedral hosted events that drew the attendance of presidents and other leaders.

The interim dean, Rev. Dr. Francis Wade, said in a statement that he hopes the decision will help the country heal and move past the tragedy.

Wade said the cathedral will pray for the victims and for military service members.

Worship services are planned Tuesday beginning with Holy Eucharist and a morning prayer service.
