An interfaith service of prayer, hope and remembrance was held at Benton Chapel Sunday afternoon. The event mirrored a service held 10 years ago on the evening of Sept. 11, 2001, following terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania.

The Sept. 11, 2011, service included music by Vanderbilt students and Blair School of Music children’s choirs, readings by representatives of various faith traditions, the presence of ROTC/NROTC and police/fire personnel, as well as members of the Interfaith Council, Divinity School and Vanderbilt Student Government.

During the service, attendees took time to honor victims of the attacks, including three Vanderbilt graduates.
