MUW to hold prayer and remembrance services
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- In commemoration of the Sept. 11 attacks on the nation last year, Mississippi University for Women will have prayer and remembrance services Tuesday, Sept. 10 and Wednesday, Sept. 11.
The prayer service will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Poindexter Auditorium with live music from choirs and soloist as well as local pastors, students and members of the community delivering messages of inspiration and worship.
"We are trying to give the community and students a time of prayer to dispel any fears that we as Americans may have due to the one-year anniversary. Hopefully, prayer will subside that fear," said Iika Taylor, MUW director of multicultural affairs.
The remembrance and thanks service will take place Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Bryan Green Gazebo. The service will provide an opportunity to reflect upon those who lost their lives as well as heroes from the tragic event.
Phillip Cockrell, Student Government Association president, said, "The community and campus will have the opportunity to come together as one with one common purpose. We want to join together in remembering the people who saved lives as well as those who lost theirs."
The public is invited to attend.
