Local clergy met with members of the Pittsfield community at the Lichtenstein art gallery to hold a candlelight vigil to pay tribute to victims of the bomb attacks at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three were killed and more than 170 were wounded in the attacks.
The public joined an interfaith prayer service to remember those lost.
Quentin Chin, Interim Pastor at the South Baptist Church in Pittsfield, led songs and prayers.
"This is an opportunity really for all of us to find some sort of expression in ritual action," said Chin.
