Upcoming Events

 March For Our Lives

At 10am this past Wednesday, the CHR community participated in the 17 minute student-led walk out against gun violence. We joined with schools in our neighborhoods and across the country. Indiscriminate violence is incompatible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ that we seek to follow. We will take part in the March for our Lives on Saturday, March 24 here in New York City. You are invited to march with us. Let us know that you want to participate and we will coordinate logistics

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.
