A poignant community ritual has taken place each year since 9/11 on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, as members of the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith Clergy Association and neighborhood congregations gather there on the anniversary of the terror attacks.

This year’s event takes place Thursday, Sept. 11 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade, where so many watched the tragedy unfold.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the observance, which will include readings and prayers from the faith traditions represented.

Moreover, Grace Church-Brooklyn Heightscontinues its 9/11 Requiem Eucharist at 7:30 in the morning.
