Screening of the film on the hero of September 11 by Father Mychal


The screening of the documentary film about Father Mychal Judge and 9/11 is one of the highlights in New York on the 21st anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks.

“Remembering Mychal” – Priest of 9/11, directed by Brendan Fay and edited by Ed Caraballo, tells the story of FDNY Chaplain Mychal Judge, who was the first recorded death on 9/11. Twenty-one years after his death, he is loved by many as a 9/11 saint.

On September 11, 2001, as the attacks unfolded, at the Franciscan Convent on West 31st Street, Fire Department Chaplain Father Mychal Judge quickly changed from his Franciscan robe to the uniform of his department’s chaplain. of fire and rushed to help his beloved firefighters.

He was killed in the first collapse. A French film crew captured the moment seconds before he died, as he fervently prayed for the men around him trying to save lives. He actually died of a heart attack, it was later determined, and became the first token victim of Hell that day.

The “Remembering Mychal” screening takes place Sunday, September 11 at Fordham University Lincoln Center, 113 West 60th Street, New York City, at 3 p.m.

“On October 11, 2001, a month after the death of FDNY Chaplain Judge Mychal on September 11 in the World Trade Center attacks, friends came together to mourn, find hope, and remember their priest and friend, Father Mychal. He had a heart as big as New York,” says Fay.

“In stories, prayers and song, parishioners in New Jersey and New York, recovering alcoholics, firefighters, Franciscans, Irish musicians and the LGBTQ community uncover the life and heart of Mychal Judge. In tenderness, tears and laughter emerges a compassionate and human Father Mychal, the people’s Judge Mychal.
