St. Ann’s Sanctuary Still: St. Ann’s will host this community event to honor the spirit of their borough and its particular perspective on our nation’s loss, recovery, and renewal.

The program will include spoken word, music, and video presentations. Presenters will include elected officials, first responders from the fire and police departments, Brooklyn-based authors, faith leaders, and community members. Musical presentations will be provided by The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, the Grace and Spiritus Chorale of Brooklyn, and the St. Ann’s Choir.

On September 11, 2001, the Parish of St. Ann’s opened its doors to provide sanctuary for members of the Brooklyn Heights community and people fleeing lower Manhattan across the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. The building was a haven for many afterwards and remains in continuous use for weekly worship, quiet contemplation, and as a venue for arts and community programs.
