The Legacy LIVE series continues with "Honoring Fr. Mychal Judge'The Saint of 9/11'" on Sunday, Sept. 11, 1-4 p.m.
Judge was a chaplain serving the firefighters of Engine 1-Ladder 24 who was among the first responders in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. An openly gay Franciscan Friar and beloved New York activist, Judge refused to seek shelter with the city's elected officials, choosing instead "to stay with his men." Judge was killed by falling debris after administering last rites to a fallen firefighter.
The Legacy Project will remember "Victim 0001" on the 15th anniversary of the World Trade Center terrorist attack with a ceremony at Judge's Legacy Walk bronze memorial, 3540 N. Halsted St., at 1 p.m., followed by a screening of the award-winning documentary The Saint of 9/11 at Lakeview Presbyterian Church, 716 W. Addison St., at 2 p.m. A fellowship reception will conclude at 3:30 p.m.
This event is presented in cooperation with The Legacy Project, Center on Halsted and the Northalsted Business Alliance and their presenting partners, Dignity/Chicago and AGLO ( Archdiocesan Gay and Lesbian Outreach ).
