Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island Offers Opportunity to Add Names to its Wall
Catholic Cemeteries of Long Island is offering families of victims and first responders the opportunity to add loved ones’ names to its 9-11 Memorial as part of the 20th year remembrance of the September 11th Terrorist Attacks on America. We wanted to ask for your assistance in sharing this information with members of your community and others who may have somebody that they would like to add to the memorial.
The Memorial monument, located at Holy Rood Cemetery in Westbury, was erected in 2003 and currently displays the names of 414 individuals who were victims of the 9-11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and individuals who worked to rescue and recover the victims at Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan.
Family members, friends and colleagues who lost loved one or friends are encouraged to submit their names using a special form with required information and attestation. The deceased’s full name and optionally, their profession or role, will be added to the memorial.
All forms must be submitted and arrive by email or mail by July 31, 2021.
The form is available online at https://CCLongIsland.org/9-11-memorial/.
Those who lost their lives later due to health conditions and exposure at Ground Zero and lower Manhattan are also eligible for inclusion on the memorial.
Inscription on the memorial is provided by Catholic Cemeteries at no cost to the families, and the individuals do not have to be Catholic for inclusion.
We appreciate your dissemination of this information to your constituents, sharing the attached flyer with others and including information about this opportunity on your website. If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me at (516) 459-9386 or by email.
Thank you for your assistance.
