RINDGE — Members of the public on Wednesday are invited to the Cathedral of the Pines to mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
During "Remember to Remember September 11," a recording is played of the names of all 2,977 victims who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, The Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93 in a field in Pennsylvania.
But in the 18 years since that day, the program has expanded to include other victims of terrorism.
A recording will also be played of the names of the 49 people murdered during the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., in 2016.
Read live during Wednesday's ceremony will be the names of the five people who died during and after the Boston Marathon bombings of 2013, and the eight people killed when a truck driver drove into them in New York City in 2017.
Remember to Remember September 11 was started by James Pelletier, an artist and poet who lives in Winchendon, Mass., working with Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (now called Learning Ally), the United Nations, The Pentagon and more, according to a news release.
The ceremony will start at 8:45 a.m., rain or shine, and lasts about three hours.
