9/11 concert remembers, honors

A standing-room-only crowd approaching 2,000 filled the Cathedral of Christ the Light and Cathedral Plaza on Sept. 11, for a memorial, “Looking back, moving forward.” The Oakland Symphony Chorus, the Oakland Civic Orchestra and Pacific Boychoir Academy performed Mozart’s “Requiem,” followed by a moment of silence and 500-rose tribute on the plaza. In welcoming the crowd, Father Ray Sacca, cathedral rector, said the cathedral was not just a place for worship, but a place for the entire community to gather in prayer and reverence. Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone said that while remembering the 9/11 terror attacks was “a sad and somber occasion that gathers us, we all share the vision of peace and commitment to it.” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan reminded people of the sea of U.S. flags that were ubiquitous 10 years ago, and now “we wear our flags in our hearts.”
