Religious groups meet Sunday to pray at Marathon site

Religious groups will join in worship Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at the site of the Boston Marathon barricades. Boston Globe reports:

Religious worshipers will gather at the corner of Boylston and Berkeley streets at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to pray, sing, and support victims of the Marathon bombings, an Old South Church minister said.

“We had very much hoped we were meeting at the finish line to reclaim it,” said The Rev. Nancy S. Taylor, senior minister and chief executive of Old South Church in Boston, which is part of the barricaded active crime scene. “We’ll be standing in solidarity with the victims of the bombing who are still very grievously injured.”

Attendees will include worshipers from Trinity Church, Temple Emanuel, Arlington Street Church, Church of the Covenant, Central Reform Temple, Old South Church in Boston, the Community Church of Boston, The Cathedral Church of St. Paul, the First Baptist Church of Boston, the First Church in Boston, and others.

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.
