Church members said a prayer that Pope Benedict XVI delivered during a 2008 prayer service at the ground zero site in New York City.

"We want them to remember (Sept. 11), so that the lives lost won't be in vain and they would continually be remembered,” Monsignor Michael Tugwell said.

Deacon Ken Mayfield asked attendees to not be complacent and remember 9-11 forever.  

Harry Leboeuf, a Knights of Columbus member who helped organize the occasion, said a prayer for peace would be beneficial for America.

"With all of the things going on in the world, praying for peace is probably a pretty good idea," he said.
