CARTERET — In response to the recent announcements by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg keeping clergy, first responders, and World Trade Center survivors from the official 9/11 memorial service at ground zero, Rhema Word Ministries in partnership with, survivor and survivor advocate, Elder Nicole B. Simpson is extending an open invitation for their New Jersey based memorial service.
The non-denominational service will be held at the American Legion located at 1155 Roosevelt Avenue, Carteret. Prayer will begin at 8:30 am with the memorial service starting at 9 a.m.
“I am very, very angry right now. If survivors can’t attend the memorial service, the first responders are not invited and the clergy is now banned-who in the heck is going to the Memorial Service?” said Simpson, who is also an Elder at Rhema Word Ministries. “It seems to me that America has lost its moral compass. America is a country built on faith and our faith is critical to the healing process. Our service is open all.”
