9/11 statues, reminders of closed BPC Chapel, to live on in church portico

St. Joseph’s Chapel’s 9/11 memorial statues, the only Catholic memorial to those killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, will be moved to the portico of St. Peter’s Church on Barclay and Church Streets, reports Carl Glassman of the Tribeca Trib. Four statues of Saints Michael, Florian, Joseph, and Mary Magdalene represent, respectively, police officers, firefighters, workers and the people killed aboard the planes.  The statues were sculpted by John Collier.

St. Joseph’s Chapel in Battery Park City closed last month, another victim of skyrocketing rents. As well as being a house of worship, St. Joseph’s served as a respite center for recovery workers after the 9/11 attacks.
