CHR 150th Anniversary Exhibit

What was the Church of the Heavenly Rest like in the 1860s? Why were we known for our outreach programs at the turn of the century? What are the stories told in our stained glass windows? And why is our chapel dedicated to “the Beloved Disciple”? For the answers to these questions (and more!), please visit of our 150th anniversary exhibit, CHRonicle; A Church in New York City currently on display in the Narthex

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
