A city-wide interfaith service “Interfaith prayers for peace and healing on the 10th anniversary of 9/11” will be held at 5 p.m. Sept. 11 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

The Rev. Carolyn Fleming Sawyer, director of Pastoral Services at Pitt County Memorial Hospital, will offer a meditation and members of the interfaith community will offer prayers for peace and healing in their respective traditions. The order of Choral Evensong, a service unique to the Anglican tradition, will be led by St. Paul’s Parish Choir.

The event is open to all congregations and citizens of Greenville. A reception will follow in the Parish Hall. A pizza and volleyball gather will be held for all youth.

St. Paul’s is located at 401 East Fourth St., with parking available next door to University Towers on Third St.
