A Thursday night vigil is planned for Jassy Correia, the 23-year-old mother found dead in Delaware on Feb. 28 after being kidnapped when she left a Boston club four days earlier.

Correia’s cousin, Katia Sofia Depina, posted information on the vigil to her Facebook page.

The vigil is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday outside St. Peter’s Church on Bowdoin Street in Dorchester.

Correia’s wake will be held at St. Peter’s from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, and her funeral Mass will be said there Saturday at 10 a.m.

Louis D. Coleman III, 32, of Providence faces a federal charge of kidnapping resulting in the death of Correia, who was the mother of a 2-year-old girl. The federal count carries a possible death penalty upon conviction.


Coleman made a brief court appearance in Delaware on Monday, but his initial hearing in US District Court in Boston hasn’t been scheduled. He’s currently in custody.
