‘Winter Night of Prayer’ set for Thursday


TERRE HAUTE — The Sisters of Providence invite people of all faith traditions to St. Mary-of-the-Woods for “A Winter Night of Prayer” in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

“Winter calls us to look within. The short days and long nights invite us to reflection,” said Sister Paula Damiano, programming coordinator for Providence Spirituality and Conference Center.

Participants may come for one, two or all three hours. Each segment will begin on the half-hour with 15 minutes of reflective reading and music followed by quiet prayer time. The church will be lit by candlelight.
