The Seton Hill University (SHU) College Republicans Club and the Office of Campus Ministry placed 2,997 American flags on McKenna Lawn in remembrance of each life lost Sept. 11, 2001. The groups put up the flags Friday morning, and a prayer service was held there in the afternoon.

Placing the flags was part of the College Republicans Club’s 9/11: Never Forget Project. SHU is one of over 200 campuses nationwide taking part in the project, which is organized by the Young America’s Foundation.

The Sunday liturgy in St. Joseph Chapel at 7 p.m. will be followed by a period of Eucharistic Adoration to honor the 9/11 victims.
