Holy Cross High School unveils 9/11 memorial

Queens Chronicle

In conjunction with a special “First Responders Mass” to honor law enforcement, fire and emergency medical personnel, Holy Cross High School on September 28 unveiled a new permanent memorial to the 17 members of the Holy Cross community who died in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

The Mass and unveiling ceremony were held at the school and attended by scores of first responders wearing their dress uniforms — many of whom are Holy Cross alumni and alumni parents — as well as by families of the former Knights who perished on 9/11 and members of the school community. Among the speakers was FDNY Chief of Department Edward Kilduff.

The memorial, designed in the shape of the Twin Towers, is inscribed with the names of Father Francis Grogan and 16 alumni who perished on 9/11. It is located at the corner of 29th Avenue and 170th Street in Flushing.
