Mychal Judge

By camichesmx


In a moving tribute to saintly 9/11 victim Father Mychal Judge, 200 people today formed a procession to carry his fire jacket and helmet from his church on West 31st Street in Manhattan to the NYC Fire Museum to be placed in the permanent collection.

Beginning the solemn trek after Mass at St. Francis of Assisi church – across the street from Hook and Ladder 24/Engine 1 – the marchers, including Fire Commissioner Sal Cassano — stopped to briefly pray at two firehouses along the way to the museum on Spring Street.

Each time, firefighters inside would emerge to stand quietly, their hands clasped in front of them, their faces still etched in grief for the loss of “Father Mike” — the enormously popular NYFD chaplain and Franciscan friar.
