Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to preach on Good Friday during virtual Holy Week at Heavenly Rest NYC

Fri, April 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Like many churches across the world, Heavenly Rest NYC has been thinking through meaningful and creative ways to come together for worship and serve the community during this time of social distancing. During Holy Week, the Church of the Heavenly Rest will offer many opportunities for online observances. On Good Friday we will receive a sermon by the Most Reverend Michael Curry, 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, who as the preacher at the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told both the couple and the millions of viewers watching around the world, “Love is not selfish and self-centered. Love can be sacrificial. And in so doing, becomes redemptive, and that way of unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive love, changes lives. And it can change this world.”


These opportunities for worship and observance are open to all. The services will be streamed on our website ( and you can sign up for a reminder on this Wufoo form. The services will be available for streaming beginning at the original start times and then throughout the day on our website.


For further information about Holy Week at the Church of the Heavenly Rest, please contact the Rev. Anne Marie Witchger (
