Around 150 gathered before a makeshift altar in the Ocean City Town Council Chambers yesterday.

They were parishioners from St. Paul’s By The Sea  church who showed up for the first worship service in the aftermath of the fire that killed the Reverend David Dingwall.

Many wore orange or pinned orange ribbons to their chest Dingwall’s favorite color.

His wife, Brenda, said that no matter how horrible the events were that led to her husband’s death “He was a child of God” to be kept in their prayers.
