The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector of Trinity Church (TEC) Wall Street, will join other local clergy and representatives of various faiths in “A Witness to Peace: A Multi-Religious Gathering With Pope Francis” Friday morning at 11:30 inside Foundation Hall at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The service will include meditations from several faith traditions, music, prayers, and a reflection by Pope Francis.
Earlier this week, when the Pope celebrated Mass in Washington, DC, a setting of “All Creatures of our God and King” by Julian Wachner, Trinity’s Director of Music and the Arts, was included in the liturgy.
You can watch the Pope’s visit with New York City religious leaders, including Dr. Lupfer, here.
