NEW YORK — Rev. Don Anderson, the Rhode Island State Council of Churches executive minister, said it is important for the state’s churches, synagogues, and mosques to participate in the effort to memorialize what many have called Rhode Island’s 9/11.

‘‘Rhode Island is small enough that we were all touched in one way or another by this tragedy. The whole state was rocked,’’ he said. ‘‘We feel that faith was a way in which a lot of people dealt with this tragedy. They found comfort and solace and a way to deal with the horrors of that night.’’
