Upcoming Events

Art Walk with Roland de Fries
You are invited to go on an Art Walk with artist Roland de Fries on Sunday, February 11 from 2pm-4pm. Roland will lead us on a journey of visual depictions of ethereal images from the Old Testament, especially Genesis. Please wear comfortable shoes as this tour involves some walking. Space is limited to 20, and offered on a first-come basis. Sign up with the Rev. Tuesday Rupp, trupp@heavenlyrest.org.

Lenten Bread Retreat with Andrew McGowan

Dean McGowan is a scholar of Early Christian history and has a deep and abiding interest in bread – its history and its biblical and theological traditions. Pre-registration is required; lunch is included. Registration is $40, limited to 20 participants. To sign-up, contact House of the Redeemer at info@houseoftheredeemer.org or call 212-289-0399.

Lenten Reflections Book Entries

Calling all authors, poets, artists, photographers, and puzzle-makers of all ages: We are seeking submissions for the 2018 CHR Lenten Reflections Booklet! Our booklet has reflections for every day of Lent and Holy Week based on the appointed readings for the day. They are short thoughts from the heart, a personal gem for each day. The booklet will be available to all members of the parish and put it on our website. Please contact Tuesday Rupp, trupp@heavenlyrest.org


This fall we will focus on the theme of Moral Compass. In conversation with thought leaders from across disciplines we will ask “how do we act faithfully in a complex world?” Be sure to mark your calendars for the events coming up as a part of this series!

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.
