The tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks will be observed with a Mass of remembrance for the victims Sunday (Sept. 11) at 7:30 p.m. on the Hesburgh Library Mall at the University of Notre Dame.

Notre Dame president Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., will be the presiding celebrant at the Mass, and Notre Dame president emeritus, Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., will preach.

The public is invited, and the customary Sunday evening Masses in all of the University’s 29 undergraduate residence halls, as well as in the Fisher Grace and University Village graduate student residences, will be cancelled in order to allow all Notre Dame students to participate in the Mass of remembrance.
