9/11 Remembrances in Manhattan, Staten Island


The “Father Mychal Judge 9/11 Walk of Remembrance” will be held in Manhattan in honor of those lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

The day begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9, with the Rosary at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 135 W. 31st St., followed by Mass at 9:30 a.m. All are invited to walk the route beginning at 10:30 a.m. at E1/L24 FDNY at Seventh Avenue and 31st Street and concluding at 1:30 p.m. at St. Peter’s Church, 22 Barclay St. in lower Manhattan.

The walk retraces the footsteps of Father Judge, O.F.M., a FDNY chaplain who died while responding at the World Trade Center on 9/11. 

This year’s walk will honor the late NYPD Detective Steven McDonald, who died in 2017. Detective McDonald co-founded the walk in 2002. Father Judge was a close friend of the McDonald family.
