THE FATHER MYCHAL JUDGE MEMORIAL 9/11 WALK OF REMEMBRANCE | This annual observance is named for FDNY Chaplain Mychal Judge — who rushed to the scene on Sept. 11, 2001, and was killed when debris from the collapsed South Tower was hurled into Judge’s North Tower lobby location. The 10th Precinct Community Council will sponsor an Honor Guard to meet the procession as they stop at the quarters of Chelsea’s Engine 3/Ladder 12/Battalion 7, to honor firefighters from that house who died in the line of duty on Sept. 11.

Sun., Sept. 6. The March is expected to be at 19th St. & Seventh Ave. around 11 a.m., from its starting point at St. Francis of Assisi Church (135 W. 31st St. btw. Sixth & Seventh Aves.). There is a 9:30 a.m. Mass, and the Walk begins at 10:30 a.m. After its stop in Chelsea, the walk proceeds down Seventh Ave., ending at the World Trade Center.
