A Message Regarding the Boston Marathon Explosions
April 16, 2013
In the wake of the two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, Curry College extends its deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the victims who lost their lives in this horrific and heartbreaking tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the runners, spectators, first responders, and the families and friends of all those impacted by the tragic events.
We have not received any reports of injuries to Curry College students or employees. The health and well-being of our community members is of utmost concern at this difficult time, and the College is providing appropriate care and resources for students who are struggling to cope with this senseless tragedy.
"Support is here for those who need it," wrote Dean of Students Maryellen Kiley, in a message to students on Monday evening, while providing information about campus resources and services.
Counselors in the Counseling Center are available to speak to those concerned about themselves or a loved one at (617) 333-2182. A counselor-on-call is also available 24 hours a day who can be reached by calling Public Safety at (617) 333-2222. Residence Life staff may also be reached by contacting Public Safety at (617)333-2222, and the Office of Spiritual Life can be reached at (617) 333-3532.
A Catholic Mass originally scheduled for Thursday was moved up to Tuesday afternoon at 12:45 in the O'Toole Chapel, to which all members of the community from all faiths were welcomed.
"Given the horrific events at the Boston Marathon, I know that many of us are shocked and saddened by the tragic and senseless loss of life and the grave injuries that so many people experienced," says the Rev. Terry Hoffman, the College's Director of Spiritual Life.
"Please feel free to visit the Chapel for a few minutes this week for quiet reflection and, if you wish, silent prayer."
Students may also contact the Dean of Students Office at (617) 333-2289 with questions about campus resources or individual needs at this time.
