The College of the Holy Cross Community is invited to an Interfaith Prayer of Lament on Wednesday, April 17 from 4:30 -5 p.m. on St. Joseph Memorial Chapel Plaza. The gathering will be an opportunity to voice grief, offer prayers for the victims, and lift up desires for a more peaceful world in the face of the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
“The Boston Marathon is a symbol of so many of the values which we at Holy Cross hold dear — dedication, perseverance, charity, community, and excellence,” says Marybeth Kearns-Barrett, director of the Office of the College Chaplains. “By gathering together as a community to reflect and pray at this painful time, we reaffirm our commitment to these values and to our collective vocation to be peacemakers.”
