Congregation conducts Peace Prayer Vigil

“War is destructive to everyone. The people of Russia are suffering. The people of Ukraine are suffering. The people of Belarus are suffering. The people of bordering countries accepting all of these refugees – they are suffering.” – Sister Paula Damiano

“That is part of what it means to lift our hearts and our minds, and our whole being in prayer. That we recognize that we can perhaps share in the tiniest little bit of their suffering by sitting here in solidarity.”  — Sister Barbara Battista

The Sisters of Providence conducted a Peace Prayer Vigil on Ash Wednesday, March 2, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception for the people of Ukraine, Russia and all other nations affected by this recent violence.
