One man who spent months at Ground Zero ministering to the first responders who and the families of September 11 victims was Monsignor Robert Romano.

The pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Brooklyn, Msgr. Romano, an NYPD chaplain, calls 9/11 the most significant event in his priestly life.

Two-thousand-nine hundred-and-seventy-seven people died that day, and countless others afterwards due to 9/11-related illnesses.  

It’s been 19 years since that day, and people are still mourning. Remembrances in 2020 were very different from years’ past because of the coronavirus pandemic no live readings of the names, or families holding pictures and telling their own stories.

Msgr. Romano joins Currents News to share his story and how faith helped us get through 9/11 back in 2001, and still is today.
