Boston, MA: Old South Church will hold Marathon Services on Sunday 4.14.2019 at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.  As the “Church of the Finish Line,” we salute one of the oldest and greatest races in the world. Each year hundreds of marathoners join us for worship, where we pause to acknowledge the runners, their families, and volunteers, and ask God to bless them, to keep them safe from injury and harm, to give them perseverance, to instill in them a respect for each other, and to pray, in the words of the prophet Isaiah, that they may run and not grow weary, walk and not faint. On Marathon Monday (Patriot’s Day), we ring our Great Tower Bell as the winners of the four elite competitions cross the finish line.
