Boston’s Trinity Church plans prayer service despite closure

Boston’s Trinity Church plans prayer service despite closure

Trinity Church in Copley Square is still closed under orders of the Boston Police Department in the wake of Monday’s Marathon bomb attack, but the church will hold a Prayers for Peace service tonight at 6 p.m. at the corner of Berkeley and Boylston Streets. The church’s Web site invites the public to “Gather Strength and Share Hope:”

We may not be able to get into our building, but that needn’t stop us from worshipping together. With the choir and choristers, we will gather together near the site of the make-shift Marathon shrine to sing, pray, gather strength from our community, and share hope with our neighbors. Please join us!

Trinity’s congregation had hoped to be able to open their doors by this evening. Let’s pray that they will be able to gather inside the church for worship on Sunday.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
