We invite you to practice your Lenten Spirituality at Heavenly Rest. We are providing a multitude of opportunities for a variety of worship.

Sign Up for the Maundy Thursday All-Night Vigil

Following the Maundy Thursday service, the Chapel will be open throughout the night for prayer. Devotional materials will be provided; the Vigil will end at 8am. Please sign-up for an hour or more of your choice on the list at the back of the church, or contact Cindy. We will use the 90th Street door by the old reception area; security will be there to let you in and will be present throughout the night.

Easter Flower Donations
If you would like to honor a loved one this Easter, you can make a donation to the Easter Flower Fund in their name. Simply fill out a flower envelope tomorrow and place it in the collection plate. Names can also be emailed to Communications Assistant, Taylor Johnson, at communications@heavenlyrest.org. All names must be received by Thursday, March 29.

March 21 – All Souls’  88 St. Nicholas Avenue, near 115th Street

Stations of the Cross
Heavenly Rest is honored to participate in an artistic exhibit across Manhattan, “Perspectives of Stations on the Cross.” This unique public art project takes visitors on a creative and contemplative journey to 14 different stations across Manhattan, including Heavenly Rest.

Stations of the Cross weaves through religious as well as secular spaces, from The Cloisters museum to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine to the 9/11 Memorial. Instead of easy answers, Stations aim to provoke the passions: artistically, spiritually, and ethically. We encourage visitors of all faiths and none to take this journey using our custom app, Alight, which offers maps and podcasts from leading artists and thinkers to guide users on their way.

Stations of the Cross has traveled across the world raising awareness for those in need of refuge. It began in London in 2016, with stops including the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 2017, it was held in Washington, D.C., with stops at the National Cathedral, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and adjacent to the Supreme Court. The Stations team is excited to bring its vision to New York.

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.
