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.
Monday Meditation: Join us every Monday at 6:15 pm for silent meditation in the Chancel. Every session will include a brief reflection, followed by 20 minutes of silent meditation, sometimes called Centering Prayer in the Christian tradition. Please arrive on time so as not to enter during the silence. All are welcome! No prior experience necessary, and no need to sign up. If you have questions, contact Lindsey Briggs at email@example.com or 212-289-3400 ext 210.
Women’s Breakfast Group meets on alternate Tuesdays at 8 am at 3 Guys Restaurant (Madison Avenue between 88th and 89th Streets) for breakfast and discussion usually centered around a book that members of the group are reading. New members are always welcome! Contact the church office for more information.
