Putnam County’s Annual September 11th Candle Light Vigil will be held on Friday September 11, 2020 at the
Putnam Heroes Memorial located at Cornerstone Park Carmel, New York

With an abundance of caution, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic and its potential health hazards, the Putnam Heroes Memorial Committee has decided to live stream this year’s ceremony on the internet. The Ceremony will start at 8:00pm. Cornerstone Park will be closed to the public.  Only those involved in the actual Ceremony and its production will be on site. It is estimated that Cornerstone Park will be closed from 6:00pm until the conclusion of the Ceremony. This year we will be adding one name to our Memorial; Commissioner Robert McMahon, Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services. We will also be dedicating a tree that was a seedling from the World Trade Center Survivor Tree to the healthcare workers, emergency and essential services and the volunteers who fought and kept us healthy, safe and sustained during this pandemic. St. James the Apostle Church will be having its September 11th Mass of Remembrance at 7:00pm. The Mass will also be live streamed, with no congregants at the service.

  • The site for the Mass of Remembrance is Youtube St James the Apostle Church Carmel NY. It is recommended that you sign into the sites prior to the start. Click here to visit their YouTube page.
  • In the advent of any technical difficulties, the Ceremony will be available for viewing on this page after the service.


This site will not be active until 7:55 P.M. on September 11, 2020
