Ministry to received Sept. 11 bell

One of 18 bells used in 9/11 memorial tributes and ceremonies was to be donated to the Greater Rochester Community of Churches-Faith in Action Network this month.

Brother David Schlatter, OFM, who founded the "Bells of Remembrance" project, was scheduled to donate a 1,700-pound cast iron bell to the GRCC in honor of its initiative to bury area residents who have no family or resources, according to information from Sister of St. Joseph Beth LeValley.

He was to meet with the GRCC and other community members Oct. 4 at the SSJ Motherhouse in Pittsford for a dinner, prayer and a question-and-answer session.
