Dear Family and friends:
 
Flight 93 Memorial Chapel is a spiritual memorial and perpetual tribute in honor of the Heroes of   Flight 93, and all others who perished September 11, 2001.  Our founder is Reverend Alphonse T. Mascherino, an ordained Catholic priest for thirty Four years. The Chapel is owned by the Catholic Church of the East was handed down by Father Alphonse T. Masherino in January 26, 2013.
 
The Chapel serves as a spiritual refuge and place of meditation and prayer.
 
The Chapel is open to people of all faiths and is available for individual faith groups to worship together under the direction of their respective religious leaders. 
 
Masses only celebrated by our Archbishop on a special days and will be conducted on a regular basis to honor the Heroes who have fallen, to pray for our Nation, our President, public officials and religious leaders. 
 
The theme of the Chapel is One Nation Under God.  Appropriate ceremonies on national holidays will celebrate the religious diversity of America and the unity of the American people.    
 
 
The Chapel will present multi-media programs to the public celebrating the Memory of the Heroes of   Flight 93, The Spirit of America, and the theme of One Nation Under God. 
 
A program of lectures and addresses by professionals in the fields of Religion, Education, Psychology and Public Service will be presented.
 
Chorales, and Concerts by performing groups and visiting Church choirs centered on the theme of the American Spirit, with audience participation are planned in the Chapel and on the Chapel grounds.
 
The church building was first dedicated in 1901, and is recognized to be one hundred years old. The church was used for services for seventy years. In recent years the building served as a seed warehouse of the Servos Seed Corporation.  The building was purchased privately from the Kurt Servos Family in January, 2002 and owned by Father Alphonse Masherino Founder and in January 26, 2013 was handed down to the Catholic Church of the East. 
 
We kindly ask all our supporters to remember our Chapel in your daily prayers and your generosity will help us operate the Chapel.  The Chapel is funded by people like you! Become a chapel partner today! It is my hope that you can plan your

Thunder on the Mountain
A voice came so clear
Here on our hills
they rest gently without any fear.
 
They spoke to us
as they hallowed on our mountain
No words can be said nor pain can be reviled
Now they are at peace
with our prince of Peace.
