A brief note of introductio , my name is Thomas J. Meehan III, a member of Christ Episcopal Church of Toms, River, NJ. My wife and I are parents of Colleen Ann Meehan Barkow, age 26 who perished on September 11th, 2001 at the WTC. Each year the date is marked by a solemn ceremony in NYC , during which six moments of silence are marked by the ringing of a bell.
I would like to request that the churches participate by observing these moments by the ringing of their bells.below is an image of the information published by the 9/11 museum & memorial.
As in the past 16 years I have made this request of my own diocese, and this year to our Bishop, Chip Stokes.
Thank you for reading this note, and passing it on - a simple acknowledgement would be most appreciated.
Thomas J. Meehan III
