Writing is a powerful form of contemplative prayer. The Journaling group meets once a week, Thursday mornings at 10am in the Chapel, to write and reflect together. During Advent we will be working with the book “Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas.” Please contact Tuesday Rupp, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.

February 18 – New York Classical Players: Rethinking Schubert, 3pm.
Franz Schubert’s enduring legacy as one of the most prolific and creative composers is the source of inspiration for New York Classical Player’s original new program, “Rethinking Schubert.” Three works transform, magnify, and illuminate the artistry of Schubert through works for string orchestra. Rondo Brillant, originally scored for violin and piano and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden(String Quartet No. 14 in D minor), magnificently arranged by Gustav Mahler, are performed alongside the United State premiere of Dobrinka Tabakova’s 2013 Fantasy Homage to Schubert.

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.
