Artist of the Season Opening Reception: Ellen Warner @ Undercroft
Jan 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Thursday, January 17, 2019: Artist of the Season Opening Reception featuring the work of professional photographer and parishioner, Ellen Warner. 6-8pm in the Undercroft. To RSVP click here.

Exhibition will hang through April 24, 2019. 

Ellen’s photography includes both spectacular photojournalism and a variety of portraits (from an author series, to family portraits, to the girls of Freetown). The centerpiece of Ellen’s exhibition will come from a book she is currently working on, entitled the Second Half, in which Ellen combines portraits of women over the age of 50 and from around the world, with reflections and insights, told in their own words, of what it means to be living in the second half of life.

Perhaps you remember Ellen’s penetrating portrait of Odette Walling, Resistance Leader and Ravensbruch Prisoner #47321, that hung in our first Heavenly Light’s All-Parish art show. While these women’s images and stories will undoubtedly appeal to women in the second half of life, there are also poignant take-aways for men and women and boys and girls of all ages.

Night Prayer Service
Church of the Heavenly Rest invites you to a service of quiet music and contemplation, joining hearts and voices in  the centuries-old tradition of Night Prayer. Let the softness of candlelight and the beauty of singing envelop you each Sunday evening from 7:00pm-7:30pm in the Chapel of the Beloved Disciple. Night Prayer, the last office of the day for monastic communities, is the perfect way to both end the day and begin the week nourished and refreshed.
Night Prayer begins on Sunday, December 1.

Need a Prayer

PSALM 51
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.
