BOSTON (AP) — Boston-area residents are coming together in prayer and reflection after a tumultuous week that began with the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley will offer a Mass on Sunday to pray for those killed and injured in the attack and the later manhunt for the suspects. The service will also honor police, firefighters, EMTs and doctors who saved lives.

A Boston synagogue is opening its doors to worshippers from Trinity Church, which sits in the shadow of the Marathon finish line and remains closed. Sunday’s service will be held at Temple Israel.

An interfaith service will also be held Sunday near the finish line. The Rev. Nancy Taylor of the Old South Church said worshipers will be showing solidarity with bombing victims.
