Regarding Tower of Remembrance. From leaflet available at the site:
The bells were originally blessed and installed in 1960 at the Seminary and rang there until 1973. They have been silent since then. Bells have always been significant in calling people. These bells will ring out calling all people to pray - and work faithfully - for world peace, so that these victims will not have died in vain. This Tower of Remembrance - emerging from the rubble of violence - will remind us that in God there is hope; that as we remember, we heal. The name of each innocent victim who died at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in the field in Pennsylvania is inscribed on the memorial walls.
The Tower of Remembrance is a place where everyone can reflect on the sacredness of lives remembered. A bell tolls forty-six minutes after each hour starting at 8:46 am and ending 8:46 pm. It tolls four times in remembrance of the lives lost at the North tower, at the South tower, at the Pentagon, and in the field in Pennsylvania."
