SCOTCH PLAINS — The students, faculty, and staff of Union Catholic High School joined together to honor victims of the terrible tragedy that took place on Sept. 11, 2001.
UC’s Peer Ministry led the school in a prayer service over UCTV, which included a reading from 5 Matthew:43-48 and 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, both encouraging love rather than destructive hate. Previously, the Environmental Club commemorated the 10-year anniversary at the annual Arbor Day celebration in the spring with the planting of a tree in honor of the victims of 9/11.
