Services today on Boylston Street near Marathon bombing site
Services will be held around Boston today to pray for the victims of last week’s Marathon bombing, including one service that will take place just blocks from the blast site.
A group of leaders from Back Bay churches including the Church of the Covenant and the Old South Church will lead members in a service at the corner of Boylston and Berkeley streets at 12:30 p.m.
“We will pray. We will sing. We will bless. We will be together,” the Old South Church said on its web site.
Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley will also preside over a service at 11:30 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in the South End for the “repose of the souls of those who have died as a result of the recent bombings.” O’Malley will also lead a prayer for those who were injured and for the men and women who saved countless lives as first responders, according to the Archdiocese of Boston.
Later today a wake will be held in Medford for 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, one of the three people killed in the Marathon bombing.
