Legacy of Loss

Jon Krawczyk's cross, too, stands in a place where another symbol of loss once stood. Alongside St. Peter's Catholic Church in Lower Manhattan, Jon's cross looms over the bustling street like a silent watchman, a guardian angel exposed to all, reminding us of what came before.
Tomorrow morning the story of the cross returns to Los Angeles as Catholics At Work of Orange County hosts what promises to be a very special event. All are invited to The 9/11 Cross at the Hilton Orange County in Costa Mesa to celebrate Mass, share some goodwill and some breakfast, and hear from Jon himself about his amazing, emotional journey.
Years in the making, the Freedom Tower stands as a testament to the resilience of the people at her feet - and a reminder of the two gaping holes in the ground nearby.
