September 11 Morning Rush: Albuquerque church holds remembrance ceremony in honor of 9/11


1. Remembrance ceremonies around the nation and here locally will be honoring the lives lost seventeen years ago Tuesday in the September 11 attacks. At Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Barelas, the bells will toll to honor the victims lost that day. The church has a tie to the attacks in New York. Two steel beams from the world trade center now make up the bell tower of the building. The bells will ring at 6-46, the time the first tower was struck.

2. State health officials are now encouraging people who visited a downtown spa to get tested for HIV and hepatitis. The department of health shut down the VIP Spa after a customer got an infection. On Friday, inspectors stopped by the spa and found practices they say could spread blood borne infections such as HIV, and hepatitis b and c. Officials are urging anyone who has received what’s known as a “vampire facial” or any other injection-related procedure at the spa, to get tested as soon as possible.
