Eucharistic Prayer C / 4 in the US / Canadian prayerbooks is referred to as the "Star Wars Prayer. "

"...At your command all things came to be: the vast expanse of interstellar space, galaxies, suns, the planets in their courses, and this fragile earth, our island home;
by your will they were created and have their being.
Glory to you for ever and ever..."

The "Space Window" at the Washington National Cathedral is created to depict the stars, planets and galaxies. In the centre what appears to be a bullet hole is in fact a 7-gram piece of moon rock from the Sea of Tranquility encased in nitrogen gas. The 3.6 billion year old rock was delivered to the Cathedral by Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins in 1974.
