Father Joseph Hugo, parochial vicar at St. Charles Borromeo and Assumption Roman Catholic parishes, reads a prayer by the recently-canonized St. Pope John Paul II at the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith September 11 memorial service on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. With him, left to right, are Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons of First Unitarian Church (in background, wearing green dress); and Monsignor James Root, rector of Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral (wearing black and magenta clericals). At foreground-right are Dr. Ahmad Jaber, and Imam Abdallah Allam, both representing the Dawood Mosque on State Street.

This 13th annual service, which began at dusk at the Montague St. entrance to the Promenade. was packed with members of several congregations and local neighbors. Participants in the 11th annual Children of Abraham Walk were also present. Many of the prayers that were chanted or read from the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith traditions focused on the need to examine one’s heart and replace anger with love and unity.
