Nine Nights of Night Prayer continues through Aug. 15

It’s not too late to join the faithful and clergy across the eight-county Diocese of Cleveland for the current round of Nine Nights of Night Prayer. Nine churches are open beginning at 8 p.m. each night through Aug. 15 for night prayer, which begins at 8:15.

This session will conclude on the feast of the Assumption. As is the custom, an ice cream social will take placed on the last night at each of the nine host locations.

Host churches are:

  • The Center for Pastoral Leadership (Resurrection Chapel), 28700 Euclid Ave., Wickliffe
  • Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, 1454 Lexington Ave., Lorain
  • St. Anthony of Padua Church, 1305 E. Erie Ave., Lorain

Nine Nights of Night Prayer continues through Aug. 15

“All are invited to experience the peace and serenity of Night Prayer,” said Father Damian Ference, vicar for evangelization and director of the Office of Parish Life and Special Ministries. He said Night Prayer, an ancient prayer, is a brief – yet meaningful – way to conclude the day.

“‘Nine Nights of Night Prayer’ is a unique opportunity to open up nine of our beautiful churches in the evenings for an experience of beauty, community, Scripture and tradition,” Father Ference added.

“Black Madonna” is the special new ice cream flavor crafted by Country Parlour Ice Cream Co. of North Royalton for this round of Nine Nights of Night Prayer. The company has created a Madonna-themed ice cream flavor – with input from Father Ference – for each round of Night Prayer. The new flavor, an homage to the Black Madonna of Montserrat, is dark chocolate ice cream with black cherries.
