LOVING SPIRIT OF CREATION, WE BLESS THIS ROOM, IN THE LIFE AND SPIRIT OF HELEN LOUISE FOGG, BELOVED SISTER AND BENEFACTOR OF THIS CHURCH.

AS SHE LOVED MUSIC AND THE JOY OF HUMAN CONVIVIALITY, LET THIS ROOM BE A PLACE WHERE ARTISTS, TEACHERS AND PERFORMERS GATHER FOR RECEPTION AND PERFORMANCE, WHERE BRIDAL PARTIES MAY GATHER IN PREPARATION OF THE WEDDING SERVICE AND FEAST TO FOLLOW.

AS SHE LOVED HER CHURCH AND SERVED ON MANY STANDING COMMITTEES--THE MUSIC COMMITTEE, THE SOCIAL CONCERNS COMMITTEE, THE PARISH COMMITTEE--LET THIS ROOM BE A PLACE WHERE THE WORKING COMMITTEES OF THE CHURCH MAY GATHER TO PLAN THE WORK AND OBJECTIVES OF FIRST PARISH.

AS SHE SOMETIMES SPOKE AND REVIEWED BOOKS FOR THE WOMEN'S ALLIANCE, LET THIS ROOM BE A PLACE WHERE THE WOMEN OF THE CHURCH MAY GATHER, TO REVIEW BOOKS, SHARE TEA AND HUMAN FELLOWSHIP, HEAR AN INSPIRING SPEAKER.

AS SHE FOUND PEACE AND SOLACE IN THE BEAUTY OF NATURE AROUND HER, MAY WE ALSO FIND INSPIRATION AND PEACE IN THE BEAUTY OF TREES AND FIELDS THROUGH THE SPACIOUS WINDOWS OF THE HELEN FOGG PARLOR. OPEN THE WINDOWS OF OUR SOULS, O GOD, THAT WE MAY LET IN THE LIGHT OF THY COUNTENANCE, AND LET THE LIGHT OF LOVE AND TRUTH SHINE FORTH FROM OUR LIVES. BLESS OUR SISTER HELEN IN SPIRIT, AND BLESS THIS ROOM, THE WORK OF OUR HANDS AND HEARTS. AMEN.
