EASTON, Pa. -

Lehigh Valley residents will gather Thursday night to pray for the people of Boston.

The Easton Interfaith Action Committee, which comprises several local churches, has organized a candlelight vigil in the city's Center Square. It will begin at 7 p.m. and last about a half-hour.

The vigil will give people a chance to "share hopes and prayer" for the people of Boston, said Rabbi Daniel Stein, of B'Nai Abraham Synagogue.

The public is invited to attend.
