Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt will join clergy of Peabody churches and synagogues at a citywide interfaith prayer service for victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.
The service will be held on on Tuesday, April 23, at 7 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Church on Church Street.
“As we continue to grieve for those who were killed and injured during the Boston Marathon, we can find comfort together as a community of faith,” Bettencourt said. “I invite all those who wish to honor the victims to join us on Tuesday evening.”
The city is welcoming the public to attend the service, which will feature prayers and readings as well as music by members of the Peabody Veterans Memorial High School Choir, and choirs and cantors of local faith communities.
A collection will be taken to benefit the victims through onefundboston.org.
Parking for the service is available at City Hall and at St. John’s Church and School located at 20 Church St.
