Flowers on the altar at St. Philip’s Church last week were a gift from Nolton Davis, of Camp Springs, in memory of his wife Ada who died when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
Also remembered was when Engine 271 was sent from Morningside to the Pentagon on 9/11. They drove 271 through the tunnel into the inner courtyard where the men and hoses were deployed, and they remained on the scene for about eight hours until relieved by other departments.
Officers for the 2013-2014 Parish Pastoral Council at St. Philip’s Parish are Rutherford “Rit” Taylor, chairman; Dave Desmarais, vice-chairman; and Anne Harrell, secretary.
