Wait Chapel open Sept. 11 for all to remember 9/11

Message from Campus Life:

The events of September 11, 2001 significantly impacted individuals and communities on a local and global scale.  Members of the Wake Forest community who wish to mark the fourteenth anniversary of September 11 are invited to visit Wait Chapel between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The Office of the Chaplain recognizes the extent of loss and grief experienced by many in our campus community, each form of loss bringing its own pain.  For some, that loss is especially poignant and challenging at this time of the year.  In offering a safe place where all spiritual and religious traditions are welcomed, Wait Chapel can provide solace to those who lost loved ones on 9/11, and those experiencing loss in many different forms.  The carillon will play at 5 p.m. with a special arrangement of songs as we remember the tragic events of 9/11.

Counseling and pastoral care is available to assist students, faculty, and staff experiencing grief and/or distress, or for those who might simply be in need of a place to talk.  For students, the Counseling Center (118 Reynolda Hall) may be reached at 758-5273 and Chaplain’s Office (Suite 22 Reynolda Hall) at 758-5210.  For faculty and staff, there is also the Employee Assistance Program at 716-5493.
