In addition to the origami doves soaring over the nave, the installation will feature a contemplative light and sound show for the first month of installation. The public is invited to create the doves and to write their thoughts on the folded doves, specifically related to their ideas on what the theme of “release” means to them—release from burdens, pain, addiction or any other adversity each individual would like to overcome.
Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison is a partner in the installation, drawing attention to the issue of mass incarceration in our country, and what “release” means to the individuals in prison or newly released. In addition to “release,” the white doves carry messages of peace, resilience and hope in our troubled times.
Sean Pica, Executive Director of Hudson Link stated “we are thrilled to be involved in the Les Colombes Exhibit alongside our long time Alumni Services Ministry partner, Church of the Heavenly Rest. CHR’s re-entry support has been invaluable to us over the years and this latest opportunity is the most exciting yet. Having our alumni and their families fold the doves and write what release means to them was a powerful experience. And we are sure that witnessing the actual completed exhibit will be profoundly moving.”
Since 2007, Les Colombes have been travelling around the globe, from Jerusalem to Munich, Salisbury and London and most recently Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

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.
