Dove-Folding for Les Colombes

Michael Pendry’s Les Colombes (The Doves) is coming to Heavenly Rest! Imagine thousands of origami doves folded by people from around the world with messages of hope and peace. CHR adds its own message, Release, and invites you to dove-folding workshops every Sunday in March from Noon-1pm. By partnering with Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison, we are also bringing attention to the issue of mass incarceration.

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.
