Holy Cross to hold Boston Marathon Interfaith Prayer

April 17th, 2013 by 


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.”
