Police officers and firefighters stand at attention during Ocean City's 2017 ceremony commemorating the 9-11 attacks.

Due to the weather forecast, Ocean City’s annual “A Day to Remember” memorial ceremony will be held indoors at the Ocean City Tabernacle at 550 Wesley Ave.

The ceremony begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, and had previously been scheduled to take place in front of the Ocean City Fire Department headquarters between Fifth Street and Sixth Street on Asbury Avenue.

All are encouraged to attend. The ceremony includes music, prayer and reflections on the memory of lives lost and on the community spirit that was renewed in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

This year’s special guest speaker will be the Rev. Stephen J. Connor, the new pastor at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. In 2001, Father Connor was living in New York City and spent September through December ministering at ground zero and then at the morgue on the east side of New York.
