All are invited to join the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods for a celebration at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 21, in conjunction with the annual winter solstice. The event will be held in the White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at the sisters’ motherhouse at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, located just northwest of downtown Terre Haute. Throughout history, the winter solstice has been seen as a day for reflection, as well as the first door to the new year. “We will be celebrating the shortest day and longest night of the year,” said Sister Mary Moloney, who will lead the evening. Those in attendance will join in prayers during the evening of reflection on the light and dark in our lives. No registration is required for the free event.
