Students and educators gathered in the Welch Activity Center on Sept. 11 to celebrate Mass and honor the memories of the almost 3,000 victims of that day’s terrorist attacks in 2001.

According to information posted on the school’s Facebook page, “Cathedral High School was honored to host the annual 9/11 Mass for the Indianapolis Firefighters Emerald Society. Mayor Joe Hogsett was on hand as the school paid tribute to the victims and first responders who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

“The students were asked to do two things today. First, think of what is most important to them and dedicate the rest of their lives to whatever that thing happens to be. Second, the students were asked to find a quiet place today to remember and give thanks for their family. On this day, we thank God for the firefighters and first responders. This brave family puts their lives on the line each and every day for families they don’t even know.

“God bless America today and always.”
