After Catholics in the Cleveland diocese participated in a “Nine Nights of Night Prayer” initiative earlier this month, the diocese will hold a second round later this year.
The event, which featured nine consecutive nights of night prayer at nine different parishes in the diocese from Aug. 7 through Aug. 15, will be held again from Nov. 30 to Dec. 8, ending on the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
The diocese’s vicar for evangelization told CNA that the initiative earlier this month drew both Catholics and non-Catholics, and that parishioner feedback was positive.
“Most of the participants were practicing Catholics, but lapsed Catholics and non-Catholics did attend,” said Fr. Damian Ference, vicar for evangelization for the diocese of Cleveland, in an email interview with CNA on Tuesday.
