The Franciscan friars of the St. Anthony Shrine will host an interfaith prayer service for police, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians who responded to the bombings at the Boston Marathon, the shrine announced.

“The prayer service is to thank the first responders for their unselfish, courageous and compassionate care for the victims, as well as help heal the spiritual wounds of all,” the shrine said in a statement.

The service will be open to all and is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, in the first-floor chapel of the shrine at 100 Arch St. in downtown Boston.
