Creighton Commemorates 9/11

Creighton University is commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in several ways:

  • On Friday, Sept. 9, students from the Political Science department will place American flags on the lawn lining the mall on the University’s campus.
  • Student and Creighton community groups will read the names of the people who lost their lives on 9/11 at a ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 11, from noon to 9 p.m. in the Jesuit Gardens on campus. A temporary fence, depicting the one seen at Ground Zero, will be erected and participants are invited to bring memorial mementos. The event is a collaborative ceremony sponsored by Campus Ministry and St. John’s Church on campus. The Rev. Pat Malone, S. J., pastor of St. John’s, served as a chaplain at Ground Zero.
  • The University’s School of Law and the Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society are among several sponsors of Project Interfaith’s community gathering at Joslyn Art Museum on Sept. 11 from 2 - 3 p.m. Then & Now: Civil Liberties and Interfaith Relations Ten Years After 9/11 features Sahar Aziz, professor of law at Texas Wesleyan School of Law, civil rights attorney and writer.
