Two Back Bay churches begin road to recovery

Members happy to be back

Their doors open for the first Sunday services since the Boston Marathon bombing, two Back Bay churches were flooded with worshipers after being shuttered during the police investigation of the deadly attacks.

Painful recollections of the bombings were present during both services. At Trinity Church, the name of suspected bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was read in prayer along with the names of his alleged victims. At Old South Church, the 11 a.m. service concluded with a massive procession to the bombing site.
