The phrase “Never Forget” was heard loud and clear in the immediate aftermath of our national tragedy that was September 11th, 2001. Now, some 18 years later, unfortunately all too many have started to forget and once loud voices have started to diminish.  

The family that is Monsignor Farrell suffered too many losses on that day, and the days since. We vowed then to “Never Forget,” and we have kept our sacred promise in loving memory to our fallen brothers.  

We invite you to join us, as we have done every year, to celebrate Mass in honor of all our alumni, family, and friends of Monsignor Farrell High School who went home to God on that tragic day. 

We will all gather on Wednesday, September 11th, 8:30am in the Monsignor Farrell Gymnasium. I encourage you to join us.

After mass, you are welcome to join us for some lite fare to catch up and share some memories. 

Vir Fidelis - Never Forget

Best Regards, 


Louis R. Tobacco '90

The tragic loss of life that occurred on September 11, 2001 was felt very deeply on that day by the Farrell family.  Unfortunately, loss has not been confined to that single day. Hundreds of first responders, and others who worked or lived near Ground Zero,  have died from 9/11 related illnesses.  As the eighteenth anniversary of the September 11th  attacks  approaches, we at Farrell remember, honor and pray for all who lost their lives as a direct result of the actions taken on that day.  Twenty-three alumni died the moment the towers collapsed, and in recent years, we have learned of the passing of four more of our Farrell brothers who lost their battle with illnesses borne from that horrific day. We wish to keep in our thoughts and prayers all alumni who were lost during this tragedy, so if we have not included the names of any alumni who have passed in the years following the 9/11 terrorist attack due to affiliated illnesses, please contact the Institutional Advancement Office so we can include them and their families in any future memorials and prayer services.
