Aug 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join Outreach Sunday August 19th at coffee hour immediately following 10:30am service as we collect and learn more about our Service Project: Metrocause.

CHR’s MetroCard program provides the gift of free public transportation to our friends and neighbors in need. With the rising cost of public transportation, many New Yorkers struggle to get around. Whether it’s a formerly incarcerated person trying to get to a job interview or a senior trying to get to a doctor’s appointment, the gift of public transportation is transformative.  New and partly used MetroCards can be placed into the donation boxes, as well as cash and checks. Donation boxes are located at the 5th Avenue entrance of Heavenly Rest (90th Street and 5th Avenue) The church’s select Outreach partners will be distributing the MetroCards.

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.
