Prayer Vigils and Services: Response to the Boston Marathon Bombings

  For some, a prayer vigil or service is a way to gather with others and spiritually support the bombing victims, the city of Boston — even the perpetrator/s.  For others, it is a way to seek answers — or peace, in the face of unsettling evil. Or even just share quiet company with others or with God. Patch is gathering a list of all the prayer services and vigils in response to the Boston Marathon bombings. Below is a list of vigils and services being held and open to the public; we will be adding to it all day.
