The Governor’s Office announced that the public is invited to attend Healing Our City: An Interfaith Service, to be held tomorrow at 11 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston.
 
The service is an opportunity for the community to come together in the wake of the tragic events at the Boston Marathon this week. Cardinal Sean, President Barack Obama, Governor Deval Patrick, and Mayor Tom Menino will be in attendance, along with federal, state and local officials. First responders, civic leaders from communities along the marathon route, medical personnel, victims and their families, as well as volunteers from the Boston Athletic Association have been invited to attend.
 
Doors for the service will open to the public at 8 a.m. Tickets will be released on a first come, first serve basis to those in line at the Cathedral. Guests should be prepared for airport-like security, and are advised to plan accordingly for lines and delays. Guests are asked to bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, liquids or signs will be allowed in the venue. Please access the entrance at Washington Street and Monsignor Reynolds Way from the north and west.
 
The public is highly encouraged to take public transportation, since both parking and road service in the area will be extremely limited. The Cathedral of the Holy Cross is located at 1400 Washington Street in Boston.
