First Parish, TCC to Hold Times of Response to Marathon Bombings

Some Wayland houses of worship are opening their doors for those looking for comfort or to pray in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Following yesterday's bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line, a couple of Wayland houses of worship are opening their doors to individuals seeking comfort or opportunities to pray.

First Parish Wayland will be open Wednesday afternoon from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. as a place for the community to gather for quiet and comfort. 

"Come for the quiet, for the communion with others, light a candle if you wish," the announcement reads. "Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected by yesterday’s events."

In addition to the time at First Parish, Trinitarian Congregational Church will hold a prayer vigil Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m.

"This service is open to our entire community as we gather for prayers, readings, and songs," the announcement from TCC reads. "Feel free to invite friends and family as we process these significant events in the life of our community together."

A variety of other organizations are holding vigils and offering opportunities for people to gather.


Editor's note: Patch initially was told the First Parish planned to gather on Tuesday, but has since learned it is gathering on Wednesday, April 17. The above has been corrected. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
