1. Please join me next Sunday morning for September 11th commemorative ceremony for the FDNY Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9 on 48th and 8th Ave. On September 11th 2001 this fire house lost the entire
shift of 15 firefighters. There will be a prayer ceremony to commemorate this tragic day and to remember the fallen heroes, it will take place in the park on 48th Street between 8th Avenue and Broadway at 8:30 am.
2. Just a reminder – please do not forget our special gathering for Father Stefan next Sunday after the Slovak Mass.
