The tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks will be observed with a Mass of remembrance for the victims Sunday, Sept. 11, at 7:30 p.m. on the Hesburgh Library Mall.

Notre Dame president Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., will be the presiding celebrant at the Mass, and Notre Dame president emeritus, Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., will preach.

The public is invited, and the customary Sunday evening Masses in all of the University’s 29 undergraduate residence halls, as well as in the Fisher Grace and University Village graduate student residences, will be cancelled in order to allow all Notre Dame students to participate in the Mass of remembrance.

Parking for the event will be available in the Hesburgh Library and C1 campus parking lots.

In the event of rain, the Mass will be moved to the Purcell Pavilion of the Joyce Center.
