Sisters of Providence prayer service focuses on ‘Joy of the River’

TERRE HAUTE — The Sisters of Providence invite individuals in the Wabash Valley to step away from the daily bustle of life for an hour of song, silence and spiritual reflection from 7 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday in the Church of the Immaculate Conception at St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

The Taizé prayer services, a part of the Year of the River programming, take place the second Tuesday of each month through the remainder of the year. The theme for this month’s service is “Joy of the River.”

“This is a unique offering for 2013 Year of the River, and I am very appreciative of the Sisters of Providence for making it available to everyone and for being so welcoming,” said Mary Kramer, executive director of Art Spaces Inc., who has been instrumental in the Year of the River programming.

Kramer has attended two of the year’s monthly Taizé gatherings. She describes them as “a lovely mix of song, readings and quiet prayer. It is an event which allows people to connect with their own spiritual center in their own way.”

“I liked being in a setting where I felt welcome to be quiet and focus inward, among other people who were doing the same thing. The Sisters of Providence have provided a nice atmosphere for anyone to participate. It was so heartening to be among people that were all praying for the river,” Kramer said.

The Taizé prayer style was created to be inclusive of people from varying faith traditions. The prayer services are open to all, with no fees or registration required.
