In remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy, the St. Norbert College campus will host a candlelight memorial on Sunday, Sept. 11, beginning at 8:30 p.m. on the lawn in front of Main Hall. The theme of the vigil is "Our call to peace, respect, dialogue." The rain site is Old St. Joseph Church.

The vigil will be followed by an opportunity to gather on the main floor of the Campus Center to enjoy a warm beverage, talk, and create a prayer flag expressing one's
hopes and prayers this night. The college will also remember alumna Andrea Haberman who died in the tragedy.

All members of the college community‒students, faculty and staff and their families are most welcome to attend.

Throughout the coming week, the bells of Old St. Joseph Church will toll each day at 9:11 a.m. and 9:11 p.m. to remind us of those we lost in 2011, and prayer flags will adorn the Campus Center.
