Episcopal service will feature Bank of America credit and debit cards being chopped to bits
Episcopalians from across Massachusetts plan an unusual protest tomorrow downtown: A march that will end with Communion - and the destruction of participants' Bank of America cards:
During the service, Bank of America credit and debit cards will be collected in the offertory plate and destroyed, and a special prayer will be said over those who pledge to bank locally and close their accounts with Bank of America and other large banks.
The march starts at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul to Government Center, with Communion on the corner of Cambridge and Court streets.
Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE will be present to preach and bless the efforts that individuals are making to bring about economic reconciliation.
